I don't. However, I do recall you mentioning that you'd withdrawn from activism because you felt the movement was too permeated with "wing-nuts". If you've changed your mind, welcome back.

Well, I'm not sure. You stated in an earlier post:

So... showing up isn't constructive, but CGF is remiss for not showing up?

Ah. You were busy doing something else. Did it occur to you that CGF Directors might have also been indisposed? I, for one, was in San Francisco. Gene was flying from somewhere to LA. Brandon, Washington. Bill, San Jose. Paul, LA. Jim, LA. Ivan, working in the East Bay... but I'm sure that you get the point.

We (CGF) are thrilled when we can get involved to help educate local governments - but we do have limited funds, time and resources. Honestly, it's why we're thankful that there are people like you who take the time to "work directly with the decision makers, before the vote".
Rest in Peace - Andrew Breitbart. A true student of Alinsky.

90% of winning is simply showing up.
