Austin fund-raiser for Juan Garcia (HD 32)

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:50 am

LFT PAC’s first official financial contribution was to Juan Garcia, State Rep candidate for HD 32. and we went to blockwalk and do voter reg in San Patricio county because this guy is a natural leader and will make a great State Rep and beyond. Juan Garcia, his credentials, and his campaign really is the model by which candidates can inspire voters to become active, and everyday folks to become voters, or as Alfred Stanleys says in his annoucnement of a fundraiser:

Juan Garcia is one of our brightest hopes for beating an incumbent Republican legislator this fall. With dazzling credentials that give him almost instant credibility, he’s hard at work reaching out to fellow veterans and inspiring voters in and around Corpus Christi.

So if you are in Austin, make some time to support Juan Garcia:
WHO: Lt. Cmdr. Juan Garcia
WHAT: Fund-raiser for his campaign vs five-term Republican Rep. Gene Seaman
WHERE: Home of Liz and Kirk Watson, 2301 Woodlawn Blvd, Austin (directions below)
WHEN: Tuesday, September 26, 5:30-7:30 PM

Suggested Donation: $100 (all contributions welcome!)
Sponsorships: $250, $500, $1,000

    Thanks for the beach report. Wish I could have joined your beach trip, but I was with you in spirit.

    I can report however, that I did go to Juan’s fundraider (yes that’s a purposeful misspelling). It was, I think, a huge success. Lots of people there. Some people were even up from Corpus. Bernard Rappaport, who is a big financial supporter of the Texas Observer, was there. TX State Party Chair Boyd Richie was there and many, many people I didn’t know were there too.

    I went to see Governor Howard Dean at Scholz Garten first and then quickly made my way over to the Watson home to catch the last of the socializing. I missed Juan’s speech but I did get a chance to talk to him and his wife Denise. They are such a great team. I can’t wait to see them more when they come up to Austin. We’ll have to host a dinner to welcome them to town in January.

    Juan signed my copy of the Texas Observer with his picture on it. It was worth my donation :)
