Headline Fall 2019 Program
Like an old-fashioned double header, we are offering not one but two or possibly three speakers September 18th for the price of one luncheon.
The results of the special election for CA1 will have taken place August 27th, positioning us as one of the first clubs to have the final Republican candidates or winner address our group and give our base a chance to meet these individuals.
As of press time, all four of the candidates have been invited should they win or qualify for a run-off. Interestingly only one, Patrick Henry Jones, has replied that he will be there. I personally like his positive attitude and interest in meeting all of our wonderful members. If we do not have a clear winner having earned 50% of the votes cast plus one, we will have two Republican speakers invited to address our meeting.
In addition, continuing our theme of representation in our state, Allison Olson, our CFRW Advocate, will speak on legislation in 2019. Allison has been our Advocate since 2009. From April 2007 to May 2008 she was a fellowship winner with the Defense for Democracies Foundation. Her fellowship provided study in Israel as well as Washington, D.C. with leading experts in counter-terrorism. Allison is a graduate of UC Davis with a degree in Political Science. Prior to joining our organization, Allison was the Deputy Finance Director for the McClintock for Congress campaign; and while in college she chaired the Davis College Republicans organization. In high school she was making her mark in politics by founding the Babes for Bush group in conjunction with the Contra Costa County Republican Party.
Allison also is the Executive Director of the Down Syndrome Information Alliance. This non-profit provides support and resources to individuals with Down syndrome, their families and community.
For those of you who attended the February organizing meeting for the
CAGOP, Allison along with political consultant Matt Rexroad led an informative session for Federated attendees on campaign issues and the role of Republican women in our state.
The mother of three children, she and her husband are Woodland residents.
We hope you’ll join us for this very timely program in which we will either host the winner of the special NorCal election or two finalists along with Allison’s talk on current and future legislative directions in California.
