From my friend Adam – I’m one of the cohosts, and will be there:
Hi, I’m co-hosting an event this coming Monday evening, January 26, at Local 16 restaurant in Washington, DC in support of a really inspiring progressive who is running in a special election to replace Rahm Emanuel in the House. Can you make it? Here’s the link.
And here’s the Facebook invitation.
Tom Geoghegan is a famed labor lawyer who wrote pro-worker books like “Which Side Are You On?” David Sirota calls Tom “one of the greatest living progressives in America” and a writer at The Nation wrote “Tom could be the next Paul Wellstone.”
There will be happy hour drink specials, and a raffle at the event will include autographed books by Rick Perlstein, David Sirota, Jerome Armstrong, and the January 21st Obama Inauguration issue of the New York Times.
Tom has already raised over $100,000 in mostly small-dollar contributions, but he’ll need $500,000 to win. Tickets are $30. Raffle tickets are $20 each in advance, $25 at the door. Every dollar really goes a long way, so the more you can give, the better.
Would be great if you could make it, and help support this progressive candidate. Just click here to sign up (oh, and if you can’t make it, you can still donate via the linik).
Thanks so much. I hope to see you Monday!
