§ACLU-NC SANTA CRUZ COUNTY CHAPTER ANNUAL MEETING & DEBATE
by R. Jesse McLaren Thursday Nov 12th, 2009 3:22 PM
Louden Nelson Community Center, 301 Cedar Street (x Laurel), Santa Cruz

HOW IS PRESIDENT OBAMA DOING ON CIVIL LIBERTIES ISSUES?
The Santa Cruz County Chapter of the ACLU of Northern California (ACLU-NC) is bringing you two great speakers to debate this topic at our annual meeting. Spencer Critchley, Monterey County Democrats Communications Director, and Julia Harumi Mass, ACLU-NC Staff Attorney, will debate these positions: Obama: Advancing Civil Liberties in the Face of Difficult Constraints vs. Obama: A Disappointing Civil Liberties Record.
We will open with a short business meeting, including a report on the past year's activities from our current chair, Martine Watkins, and a vote to elect our board for 2010. We will include some remarks memorializing Mardi Wormhoudt, who was serving on our board at the time of her passing last month.
Following this, Mike Rotkin will moderate the debate, after which the floor will be opened for questions and comments. This promises to be a fascinating and valuable evening for all of us. The event is free and open to the public. We hope to see you there.
