Charlie Brown will speak at the Vanguard's Party July 30

On July 30, 2007 the People's Vanguard of Davis will celebrate its first birthday from 7 to 10 PM at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall. There will be food, a no-host bar, and speeches from a broad array of local officeholders and politicians. Excess proceeds will go to the Yolo Crisis Nursery.

Congressional Candidate Charlie Brown will speak at the People's Vanguard of Davis' first birthday party. Brown, a retired Lt. Colonel in the Air Force, challenged sitting incumbent John Doolittle in 2006 in California's Fourth Congressional District. Despite the district being among the most heavily Republican districts in the Brown was narrowly defeated by three points last November.

With Doolittle facing possible indictment for improprieties stemming from contributions from Jack Abramoff and also from his wife collecting campaign money for consulting services, Brown has already announced he will change one of the most corrupt politicians in the country.

Other Speakers include: Councilmember Lamar Heystek, Former Candidate for District Attorney Pat Lenzi, School Board President Jim Provenza, and County Supervisor Matt Rexroad.

The emcees will be: Former Davis Mayor Ken Wagstaff and the "General" Dick Livingston.

The Party will be held Monday, July 30, 2007 at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall located at 415 2nd Street in Davis from 7 until 10 pm. Admission is $20.

Please RSVP as soon as possible as seating is limited and we are expecting a capacity crowd for this event.
