May 7th Luncheon Featuring CADEM’s Shawnda Westly and Angie Tate

The Truman Club’s next lunch is Thursday May 7th at The Sterling Hotel, 13th & H Streets at 11:30

Shawnda Westly, Executive Director of the California Democratic Party & Angie Tate, Chief Financial Officer of the California Democratic Party

Shawnda is John Burton’s most loyal and trusted adviser. In 2012, California Democrats gained their first super-majority in both houses of the state Legislature in more than a century and picked up six seats in the House. Shawnda, and her team at the California Democratic Party, deserve much of the credit.

Angie prides herself on being behind the scenes. Anyone who has worked with Gov. Jerry Brown or the California Democratic Party knows that she gets things done and can manage a dime better than anyone. The Governor and other top Democratic politicos relied on Angie’s fundraising prowess in 2010 and 2012.

Truman Luncheon: Dan “Steel-drivin’ Man” Richard (& Chair of the High Speed Rail Authority)

The Truman Club’s next lunch is Thursday March 26th at The Sterling Hotel, 13th & H Streets at 11:30

Dan “Steel-drivin’ Man” Richard (& Chair of the High Speed Rail Authority)  was our kick-off speaker in 2013. He wowed us. So we asked him to return and bring us up-to-date on progress since then. As the California Weekly recently said—
Truman Dan Richard 2015 Flier

“Dan Richard is a man in the middle.

The middle of court fights, the middle of political fights, the middle of a fight over California’s future. The rest of the developed world has moved energetically to adopt high-speed rail. We will too,” Richard says.

He may be right.

After miscues, battles over the bullet train’s routes and funding, and fierce opposition in California and Washington, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Late last July, an appeals court overturned a lower court decision and ruled that the state had met the requirements to develop its funding plan for the $68 billion project, a price tag that had been dramatically scaled back from about $100 billion.

Meanwhile, Gov. Brown, who is pushing hard for the bullet train, signed a state budget that provides hundreds of millions of dollars in cap-and-trade auction funds for the project – a move that immediately drew interest from an array of private investors. And preliminary work has started on a 130-mile stretch in the Central Valley and planning is being expedited on a 40-mile segment in L.A. County.

Additional legal obstacles loom, but for now, at least, the project appears on track. The crux of the opposition
to the bullet train comes from Republicans, led by the House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield.
Their discontent focuses on the cost.”

Dan will discuss all of this and more at our first luncheon of 2015

All Aboard!
