Los Angeles Kossacks will be meeting two weekends back-to-back this month to hear from California Senate and U.S. Congressional candidates before the upcoming elections. Shockwave has done a fine job setting up these events; it is a rare treat to hear and speak to candidates in such a personal setting. Please let me know if you can be there.

On Saturday May 24, two candidates will speak to us. Betsy Butler [D] wants to represent CA-26 in the California Senate. Marianne Williamson [I] is hoping to be chosen for CA-33, U.S. Congress, to replace retiring Henry Waxman.

But wait, there's more! Bay area Kossack norm will be in town that day and may be able to join us. I know this is short notice, but let's show norm some love and welcome him to L.A.

The next Saturday, May 31 is an opportunity to hear from Sandra Fluke [D], who confused well-known know-nothing Rush Limbaugh, and is now hoping to represent CA-05 in the California Senate. Also speaking will be Left, Right and Center host Matt Miller [D] who would like to win U.S. congressional district CA-33.

Both events will be at Casey's Irish Pub, 613 S. Grand Ave, Los Angeles at 2 p.m.

Shockwave has written multiple diaries explaining the issues and candidates in greater detail.

9:07 PM PT: The start time for May 24th will be 3 p.m., not 2 p.m.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
