|Dear Marin County resident,
RootsAction is pleased to invite you to a presentation by John Nichols and Robert W. McChesney, authors of the new book Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America.
You may have read an excerpt from the book as a recent cover story in The Nation magazine. Now, coming up soon, this Tuesday night, Oct. 22, at 7 pm -- you can hear the authors speak in Corte Madera at Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd. (zip code 94925). Admission is free.
In Marin, meanwhile, several candidates on the ballot for the Nov. 5 election have been endorsed by the progressive Coalition for Grassroots Progress. Their grassroots campaigns would certainly appreciate your support. For background and contact info, please click on each candidate’s name:
** Greg Brockbank for San Rafael City Council
** Ruth Carter for Dixie School District Board of Trustees
** Marnie Glickman for Board of Directors, Las Gallinas Valley Sanitary District
** Jessica Jackson for Mill Valley City Council
The power of big money to sway elections has become all too evident in Marin and across the country. The upcoming appearance by Nichols and McChesney is part of their clarion call for democratic forces to challenge the “dollarocracy.” For details on the book, please click here.
With best wishes,
The RootsAction Team
P.S. RootsAction co-founder Norman Solomon will be speaking briefly at Book Passage on Tuesday night to begin the event with John Nichols and Bob McChesney.
