Luncheons for October, 2012

Final Pre-Election Candidate Extravaganza

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

This election year is becoming increasingly strange — and exciting. Mitt Romney’s true character and/or breathtaking gaffes make news almost daily. Republican candidates look stranger and stranger and weaker and weaker. Current Democratic prospects appear excellent. And that’s great news locally, too. We have a great collection of superb, important candidates in our next Forum program. Don’t miss this all-star cast! Keep Donna, Keep Karen, Elect Elfant the Extraordinary, Take Back the 3d Ct App! This will be great fun!


1. State Representative Donna Howard.

2. Tax Assessor Collector Candidate (and current Constable and Ice Cream Impresario) Bruce Elfant.

3. County Commissioner Karen Huber.

4. Third Court of Appeals Candidates:

Justice Diane Henson
Bryan Case
Judge Andy Hathcock
Karen Watkins

Spectacular Door Prizes:

1.     Mitt Romney, 47 Reasons The 47 Percent Don’t Matter.
