Lessons from The Recall
What Happened? What Did We Learn?

Those of us that had hopes that the recall would bring some relief from the failed policies of the liberal apparatchik running our state are very disappointed in the outcome of the recall election. Wildfires, water restrictions, brownouts, horrible schools, snarled traffic on unacceptable roads, stratospheric taxes will all continue unabated. Not to mention the overbearing oppression we suffer with forced vaccines, masks, and the nanny state.

But are there lessons to be gleaned from the experience? Have we finally caught a clue that we need to be serious about marketing our “brand” and not letting the other side define us with phrases like Republican Recall (this, when CAGOP didn’t lift a proverbial finger to help with the recall) or truly avoiding circular firing squads?

Steve Frank will be at SVARW in October for an in-person appearance! He’s been following California politics for decades, through the good, the bad, and the ugly. He publishes a daily blog, CAPoliticalReview.com, with news on California. Come here what he has to say about the recall and any lessons learned from the experience.

Date:  Wednesday October 27th

Time:  Check in begins at 8:45 AM

Location:  Three Flames Restaurant (hopefully)– Meridian Ave. San Jose 95125

Cost:  $20 for regular members, $25 for non-members, FREE to premium members (Reagan and Sponsors)

 Meet Mark Meuser!

Mark Meuser

The Republican Party is posed to pick up Congressional seats in the 2022 mid-term elections.  Candidates for US Senate and Congress have already begun their campaigns.   SVARW has invited Mark Meuser who is running for US Senate as our special guest.  Mark will be opposing Alex Padilla who was appointed to the US Senate seat held by Kamala Harris.

As a constitutional and election law attorney, Mark Meuser has fought for your Constitutional rights in the courthouse. Now, Mark is campaigning to protect the rights of all Californians in the U.S. Capitol.

Born and raised in California, Mark has a great appreciation for all that the Golden State offers. But he is tired of seeing the Democratic establishment put themselves before hard working Californians – at the expense of our freedoms and liberties.

It’s no secret that our rights are constantly being threatened in both Sacramento and Washington D.C. Mark has been involved in 22 lawsuits against Governor Newsom for his reckless use of power in response to COVID-19. He has repeatedly represented the people of California against Gavin Newsom’s friends attempting to derail the recall election, and wants to stand up for all Californians in Washington DC.

Sign up today!

This event is FREE to SVARW Members.  Non-Members:  $25.
