The Debbie for Congress campaign has just concluded another fundraiser and good times were had by all. There was live music, wine, good conversation and even the Man upstairs graced the event with a beautiful double rainbow accompanied by thunder. Auspicious! Fortuitous even!
Debbie, of course, gave an excellent presentation informing her supporters of several important issues and events. Over the past few weeks and months Ms Debbie Bacigalupi has attended the Republican National Convention meeting California Congressmen Darrell Issa and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and other leading lights of the Republican Party. She also attended the Agenda 21 conference in Rio de Janeiro last June. Debbie knows that, though “all politics is local”, it is also greatly affected by events and issues half a world away.
Debbie got into politics rather reluctantly. What impelled her was her concern for quality of life issues, urban and rural living, as well as land and water use. A daughter of farmers, Debbie knows that private property and liberty are inextricably linked. An idea that harkens back to the Founders such as Adams, Jefferson and Madison. John Adams observed that: "The moment the idea is admitted into society, that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence".
Town Hall meeting coming this Friday Sept.7
Debbie is once again on the move. She is appearing this Friday, September 7th, at the American Legion Post, 130 South Blvd., San Mateo at 6pm. The topic is healthcare, specifically Obamacare. Debbie will be discussing the issue with Tom Vaillancourt, an expert on the bill, all 2700 pages of it. They will be taking questions from the audience and informing any and all Bay Area voters of the hidden complexity of the bill. After all, as Pelosi so infamously said, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it”.
Debbie’s opponent Jackie Speier has been invited to debate Debbie at this town Hall event but has declined. At the fundraiser Debbie wondered how seriously a public official like Ms Speier takes her constituents, if she doesn't even take seriously an opponent, like Debbie, who recently garnered second place in the primary election. Debbie stated that she thought Speier an "entrenched official" and "out of touch" with her constituents. Traditionally town hall meetings are venues where politicians are supposed to meet and greet their constituents.
At any rate, last night’s fundraising event was a success. The event announced its location with two dramatic 16 foot white banners. They billowed in the breeze and caught the light just right. However, after the fundraising party was winding down it was noticed that one of the banners had gone missing. Is Debbie’s campaign having an impact?
