Keynote Speaker: Mark Meuser, Former California Secretary of State Candidate and Defender of California Voter Rights Legislation, To Present Voter Update
With the early primary set for March 2020, we are continuing our exploration of today’s Republican Party in California.
Many of us first met attorney Mark Meuser when he addressed our group in 2018. At that time, Mark was challenging Alex Pedilla in the race for California Secretary of State. What impressed me about Mark was his background in small business operation dating back to his childhood, when he ran a streetside cherry stand and cared for orphaned farm animals. While still a teenager, Mark was given the responsibility of managing a restaurant and would later open his own venue at age 21. While establishing his eatery Mark worked at night pursuing a law degree which he obtained with honors in 2003.
His legal and political career has included serving as Chief of Staff for Senator John Loudon of Missouri from 2004-2005, associations with several private law firms, and establishing his own office, the Meuser Law Group, in 2008. The focus of this practice has been representation of individuals and small businesses in civil litigation. Among his most notable cases, Mark defended Troy Worden , the President of the UC Berkeley College Republicans. In that case, the national organizer of an offshoot of Antifa sought a restraining order to restrict Mr. Worden’s movement on campus, thereby affecting his First and Second Amendment Rights. Mark was able to successfully defeat this attempt.
Since 2017 Mark has been Of Counsel to the Dhillon Law Group Inc. As many of you know, the principal of this firm, Harmeet Dhillon, is not only a Republican delegate to our party but also one of two California representatives to the Trump Re-election Campaign.
When Mark ran for office in 2018 his platform was to fight to protect the rights of our state’s citizens to not only vote but to petition their government. As a private citizen Mark, in two recent actions, has upheld these important tenets in actions brought together with the Dhillon legal team. Among other cases, he has been involved in challenging the state’s failure to ascertain the citizenship status of prospective voters.
Mark lives in Walnut Creek, is a voracious reader and collector of American political biographies and histories of our state, some published over 100 years ago. In his free time he competes in Ironman competitions and regularly addresses Federated groups on topics such as today’s “Understanding How California Elections Work.”
