February Meeting: STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!
At our meeting on February 21, we will continue our attack on income inequality in Sunnyvale and Silicon Valley. Our theme will be “Stand Up And Be Counted.” All of our committees will have met, and they will report on their efforts.
Craig Needham, one of the best civil trial lawyers of California, will be our speaker. Craig is a dynamic lawyer. For those of you old enough to recall The Rifleman television show, Craig looks like Chuck Conners. He stands 6 feet 6 inches in height and has a powerful build. He twice completed the Hawaii Ironman, and has bicycled across the United States. He has been a lecturer at the University of Santa Clara School of Law and Lincoln Law School.
Craig will talk to us about the state of our California court system, how our access to the courts has been steadily decreasing, how this impacts income inequality, and what we can do to reverse the downward trend of our courts, the third branch of government.
You will see more details about the meeting shortly.
We encourage you to attend the Sunnyvale City Council Meeting on February 10. It begins at 5 p.m. Take advantage of the public comments periods to speak your mind. Be your own advocate. You will find information about the meeting and the agenda here.
