Nick: Working on Stop Top 2 campaign to repeal the Top Two Candidates Open Primary Law. Spoke at the RWSFF monthly dinner a few weeks ago to ~100 people about the initiative for the repeal.

Aubrey: Working on the October newsletter. Went to the annual Mises celebration dinner where Steve Horowitz was a speaker. Well worth it! There is a good “free market” movement going on in San Jose / SJSU.

Les: Written several letters to the Chronicle but none of them get published anymore.

7. Next Meeting Location

Our next meeting on November 11th will be on Veteran’s Day, so the LIbrary will be closed.

Starchild will see if we can get the space at 11th and Folsom where the SF Liberty Coalition will be meeting.

Mike Denny has also volunteered for us to meet at his house in the Richmond.

Phil also volunteers his place at Fox Plaza, just near the Library.

Looks like we will meet at Phil’s apartment, we will follow up with details on how to get there.

8. Board of Supervisors Meetings

We are trying to get people to go to the Board of Supervisors meetings. The Supervisors website is actually very useful now, with video recordings of the meetings, full voting records, etc. Starchild set this up as a regular meeting, and himself and Leo only have gone to a couple of meetings. Starchild suggests we incentivize people to go by paying them. We’re not sure the legal ramifications of this.

9. Phil Ting Community Coffee

Saturday, October 21, 10:00-11:30 AM at West Portal Elementary School at 5 Lenox Way
