(Community Matters) Steven and I attended the convention in Charlotte as guests of Mayor & State Rep Julian & Joaquin Castro. Mayor Castro was invited to keynote the opening night; Joaquin introduced him. The Mayor hit it out of the park!
Lots of friends in attendance – was able to visit with Lynn Meredith, Kirk Rudy, Adrienne Donato, Jamie Citron, Mayor Tony & Carli Martinez, David Corn, Jane Stetson, Mark Strama and drive-by hugs with tons others including Wally Brewster & Bob Satawake, Zachary Allen, Barry Karas & Dana Pearlman, Andy Tobias and Laura Ricketts.
First Lady Michelle Obama closed the evening – wow. It might have been the best convention speech/performance I’ve ever seen.
We flew back to SAT immediately after the First Lady concluded, in to Austin around 3am.
