Last night I had the opportunity to attend the VFL-IOS first annual general assembly dinner in Westminster.
Much of the evening was in Vietnamese, so I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get too much out of the speakers and presenters. In fact, up until dinner, the highlight of the evening was a tall, lanky guy with an Amish-like beard trying to close the ceiling vent above him with a beer bottle.
Jim Brandt, Mike Glover, Paul Lucas and a few other local candidates spoke about the importance of protecting Vietnamese workers, and their support for the VFL-IOS.
I also had a nice chat with a Westminster School Board Candidate Mary Mangold about the Our Children, Our Vote Coalition, and the misinformation that theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been putting out. Mary has promised to email some more information to me, so look out for a post soon.
