Funds Rise, Sun Sets

by  Jamie Court, author of Corporateering
December 1, 2003 - 5:15 PM

A governor who claims to want greater sunshine in government should at least let the public know the truth about his fundraisers. Arnold�s public schedule for Tuesday, December 2nd fails to mention his fundraiser at 5:30 PM in La Jolla at La Valencia Hotel (1132 Prospect St)-- where those with special interests and $21,200 will be treated to a private dinner with the governor.

Of course, for $3.25, any member of the public can buy a half-pint of beer at the hotel�s Whaler�s Bar. Trail mix is complimentary and you can have your views heard too... join with other ArnoldWatchers in a rendition of �You Are My Sunshine� to encourage Arnold to live by the sunshine rules he promised. Or you can call Karolyn Dorsee, the organizer of the main event, at 858-756-2027 to see if you can get on the dinner list for free. Let her know you do not work for a tribe or a labor union, so you�re definitely not a special interest, but with the budget cuts, you just can�t afford the freight. Either way the fun rises at 5:30 PM.
