The Democratic Party of Orange County announced in a press release yesterday the honorees for the 19th Annual Truman Award Dinner scheduled for October 19, 2013.
This year we are proud to have Texas Congressman Joaquin Castro serving as our keynote speaker. Congressman Castro has been a courageous, dynamic and forward thinking leader. He is a true inspiration for Democrats in Orange County because of his leadership on immigration reform and moving Texas closer to the blue column. We are especially pleased to have California Congressman Raul Ruiz, who was highlighted in our August Newsletter, introducing Representative Castro.
