Join the Left-Leaning Community for socializing and interrogating two congressional candidates…
Format: We will go around the tables and each introduce ourselves and ask our guest speakers an international, national, or state question relating to Congress. Both speakers will answer same question. Please prepare questions in advance.
Guest Speakers for April 23rd include:
1st U.S. House District Candidate Cori Bush – If you are not familiar with Cori, here is an interview with St. Louis Public Radio: Cori Bush and Percy Green discuss 2 generations of St. Louis civil rights protests The 1st House District includes all of St. Louis City and most of North St. Louis County.
2nd U.S. House District Candidate Mark Osmack – The Riverfront Times ran a very interesting piece on Mark: Mark Osmack Is Running for Congress, and You Should Take Him Seriously . The 2nd U.S. House District includes parts of St. Louis County, Jefferson County, and St. Charles County. Mark spoke at our March Happy Hour but the room was under 25 (lots of RSVP cancellations because of weather and flu), so we are inviting him back.
