A "SPARC"-ling Schedule of Speakers Coming Up!
You won't want to miss any of them!
Coming up for your listening and dining pleasure:
You may feel a few pangs in July as you head out of town for your annual summer vacation. That could be California you'll be missing as you wing your way to fabulous foreign fields ... but it may also be SPARC as we take our annual break in July.
But, never fear, we have a wonderful picnic in the planning stages for August. Now on the calendar for Sunday, August 23, 2015, our annual summer picnic will feature the elements you've come to expect from SPARC: good food, great location, perfect Santa Clara County weather and scenery, and an absolutely fabulous speaker who will distill for you all the reasons it is great to support the GOP. Watch this space for more information!
Back to our regular schedule in September! On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, We will be hosting David Crane, of the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. Crane is the president of Govern for California. He's also a former special advisor to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and serves as director of the Volcker-Ravitch Task Force on the State Budget Crisis. His topic will make you lose your taste for deficit spending entirely (not that you had any!) as he discusses: "Some Things Just Don't Add up: Pension Reform by the Numbers."
David Crane, Stanford Scholar speaks to SPARC in September.
SPARC (the South Peninsula Area Republican Coalition) is a Bay Area grass-roots political organization founded in 2000 and chartered by the California Congress of Republicans (CCR). Our membership comprises many dedicated individuals that come together to learn, have fun, and work to bring positive change to our local, state, and federal politics.
SPARC's mission is to energize the Republican base in support of the overall goals and ideals of the Republican Party:
- Low taxes
- Limited government
- Individual liberty and responsibility
- Strong national defense
- Leadership in world freedom
SPARC members host several local events and educational forums throughout the year and actively participate in grass-roots campaigning. The organization focusses primarily on matters of political interest in Santa Clara county and San Mateo county but keeps the membership well informed on state and national issues as well.
