So San Francisco.
Of all things to do on a Monday evening, I didn’t really expect to be eating strawberries with Matt Gonzalez while going over fundraising activities, ideas, and plannings for a political campaign while in my livingroom.
Trully a San Francisco moment.
My roommate Jane is running for School Board:( Run Jane Run) and last night was one of the first biweekly planning sessions to be hosted at Casa Arguello for her campaign.
Now, I’m not a very political person by nature, however I adore the notion of supporting smart, compassionate, and innovative folks in their endevours to change their lives, the community, and the future. And Jane’s definitley one of those people.
Now I’m excited as all pirate boots to be involved with her campaign which may mean things like signature drives, fundraising parties, networking events, and etc. I need some help. Care to lendahand?
