Luncheons for February, 2010

District Judge Candidates Extravaganza & Judicial Mini-Forum

Monday, February 8th, 2010

A debate featuring candidates in two of the hotly contested Democratic primaries for District Court in Travis County, and a chance to meet more of our excellent local candidates for Judge and JP.

A. 201st Civil District Court Candidates:

Amy Clark Meachum
Jan Patterson

B. 199th Criminal District Court Candidates:

Eve Schatelowitz Alcantar
Leonard Martinez
Mindy Montford
Karen Sage

Bonus Speakers: Any other Democratic judicial candidates who have not already spoken at the Forum—we had 7 candidates speak in January—will have the opportunity to make a 90-second introductory talk. That format worked well at the January meeting and we learned a lot (very quickly) about some great candidates.

We have 33 candidates running for Travis County judicial positions at the district court, county court, and JP levels. 16 of those are running in 7 contested races.

Super-Spectacular Door Prizes:

1. Sarah Palin 2012 t-shirt. The mavericky fashion choice for any occasion.

2. Red Wassenich’s book, Keep Austin Weird – an Austin best seller. Perhaps the last copy on Earth.

3. Special shipment from the Clinton White House (–yes, we still have cool (of course) Clinton era stuff!).

Cost: lunch is $15.00 for members, $20.00 for non-members
