PRE-ELECTION MORNING COFFEE 🐘
Friday, October 14, 2022
Time: 10:30 am - 12:30 p.m.

Address: 490 Mountain Avenue, Piedmont 94611
(event is outdoors; wear a wrap if the morning is cool)

with Special Guest Speaker
Liz Froelich
Dai Meagher, CPA

Liz Froelich is a longtime CFRW Legislative Analyst who has done extensive analysis on the qualified ballot measures for the November election. She will present the pros and cons of the CFRW positions on the various measures.

Dai Meager will be discussing his experiences auditing the 2020 election.

We encourage all concerned voters to attend this traditional pre-election event. This year’s ballot measures cover a host of hot button issues from abortion rights to flavored tobacco products. Expect that significantly more money will be spent persuading you on statewide ballot measures than on the races for Governor, U.S. Senate and the constitutional offices combined!

Members and Guests: $10.00

In recent years, Mark has been involved in 22 lawsuits against Governor Newsom for his reckless use of power in response to COVID-19.

In his free time, Mark regularly participates in Ironman competitions!

FESTIVE SPRING LUNCHEON 🐘

Friday, March 25, 2022
Trader Vic’s Restaurant, Club Room 9 Anchor Drive, Emeryville (proof of vax required!)
Time: 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Special Guest Speaker: Eric Early, Esq., leading candidate for Attorney General

Topic: Taking Back California from the American Marxists

Four years ago, Eric Early was the lead lawyer in the first-in-the-nation lawsuit against Critical Race Theory, representing parents in Santa Barbara. This case led to the termination of the District’s Superintendent and the disclosure of the school district’s indoctrinational materials. Now California is experiencing the highest murder rate in decades while our Newsom-appointed AG supports every single policy fueling and abetting this terrible crime wave. Businesses are closing or leaving California; our border is open and lawless. It is time for someone new, an outsider who supports law enforcement and wants a California with low crime, good schools, fair elections, a strong Second Amendment, and government over-regulation out of our lives. Eric is that person.

Members and Guests: $45.00 per person (includes hot entrée + dessert)

Reservations are required, as this event is expected to sell out and seating is limited. To RSVP, look for our invite via Constant Contact OR you can reserve and pay (either via PayPal or credit card) through the “Events” tab on our website: www.eastbayrepublicanwomen.org If you prefer to RSVP by mail, send your check, payable to EBRW, to Wendy Gerhardy, 340 La Salle Avenue, Piedmont 94610, before Tuesday, March 15th, as we need a headcount for the kitchen.
