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.
