CA-42: Ambassador Joe Wilson Is Coming to OC…

For a very special event that I just found out in a special South OC Democratic Club announcement.

Joseph Wilson, author of “The Politics of Truth” and spouse of outed CIA operative Valerie Plame, will be speaking here in OC on Wednesday, May 21, in support of Congressional candidate Ron Shepston.

You really don’t want to miss this. Ambassador Joe Wilson doesn’t usually do something like this, and this is a rare chance to see him locally. With tickets starting at only $35, this is a real steal of a deal!

Where: Oak Canyon Park
When: Wednesday, May 21
Gates open at 5, speakers start at 6:45
Cost: Regular admission is $35, and kids 12 and under are free. $50 includes admission and 2 drink tickets, $75 includes admission, picnic supper, and 2 drink tickets.
$100 includes all of the above plus a signed copy of “The Politics of Truth”.

You may bring your own food or purchase a picnic supper there. There will be bluegrass music, free soft drinks, and miniature golf and games for the little ones. It’s a great event that the whole family will enjoy!

To attend, please purchase tickets in advance by calling (714) 709-4413 or going online. The map and directions to Oak Canyon Park are here.

We hope to see you there! 🙂

    Thank you for the mention, Andrew. It should be a really fun event and a chance to be part of history. I think of Ambassador Wilson as kind of a Paul Revere of our era. He was the first to have the guts and sound the alarm that we’d been lied into Iraq.

    While this is a fund -raiser for Ron, Ambassador Wilson rarely makes these kinds of appearances, so we volunteers working on the event see it as an opportunity to bring people to a Democratic event who wouldn’t normally attend such events. We see this as a party building opportunity. As such, we are encouraging Democratic clubs to attend and bring tables to promote their clubs.

    Also, to make sure we actually make some money for Ron, we are only ordering picnic suppers for people who order in advance. So, bring your own picnic or order in advance at
