Dr. Hans Keirstead, considered by many to be one of the leading candidates for Congress in the 48th congressional district, was among the many distinguished guests attending the SBLW Democrat Club’s July 29th fundraiser. He will also be the featured speaker at the next membership meeting on August 16 in Clubhouse 4 at 1:00 pm.
Dr. Keirstead, along with other 48th congressional district candidates as well as the district itself, recently received national publicity from nonpartisan analysts at the University of Virginia Center for Politics who reported that the race for Dana Rohrabacher’s House seat representing Orange County is now a toss-up.
The University’s Center for Politics, Larry J. Sabato’s Crystal Ball features detailed and frequently updated analysis for elections across the country. The Crystal Ball which keeps tabs on presidential elections, along with every Senate and gubernatorial race, as well as the tightest campaigns for the House has been a leader in accurately predicting elections since its inception.
More information about Dr. Keirstead’s distinguished career can be found in last week’s LW Weekly. All Leisure World Democrats are welcome to attend the 1 p.m., August 16 meeting as well as the informal “bring your own lunch” roundtable discussions beginning at 12:15.
In other Club news, the Local Politics Task Force is working with the Democratic Club of Seal Beach in planning for a local community-wide Climate Change Advocacy Training centered around the topics of Climate Action Plans and Community Choice Energy. All interested LW Clubs as well as residents interested in becoming involved or in co-sponsoring this climate change advocacy training should contact Laura Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
