Last week's Political Networking Happy Hour at Medjool Restaurant in San Francisco was a HUGE success! We had over 115 political professionals (and hopefuls) attend to connect, network and mingle -- including a very special guest: former Congressional candidate from California's 4th District -- Charlie Brown!
On hand were representatives from the offices of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, George Miller, and Jackie Speier, individuals from Mayors Gavin Newsome and Ron Dellums' offices, representatives from several other local elected officials, as well as individuals from local unions, non-profits, consulting firms and advocacy organizations.
Democratic GAIN would like to extend a special thank you to our event co-sponsors the Good Ol' Girls Network, Jim Ross Consulting and NARAL/Pro-Choice CA, as well as the Medjool restaurant for their help in making this event such a success.
In addition, we'd like to give an extra giant thank you to Emily Campbell and Tom Ballantyne for all of their work. This event literally would not have taken place without their leadership! We have more events like this coming up soon -- including Kansas City next week, Denver next month and the Career Fair in NJ on February 7th. Attending events like these truly are the secret to getting and maintaining a successful career in politics. Working in politics isn't rocket science - it's just all about who you know and the relationships you are able to build."
