If I want a White House tour, I would have to go through her office no?
Yeah, their staff is very good at handling White House tour requests.

Yes, here's the website:

I would suggest to do the Capitol tour through the office too. You'll be able to walk to the Capitol by going through the underground tunnel from the Rayburn House Office Building.

Thanks! Thought it would be great to attend but you need Facebook account to RSVP unfortunately

Hopefully someone in attendance can record and post

Looks like 300-700 people going so far

You don't need to RSVP to attend. Open to all in CA45. I think organizers might've just put that on FB to try to get a rough count on attendees

2018 will be interesting to see how many seats go from frying pan to fire.

So will probably switch sides, but suspect most seats that change will flip from a radical right to a radical left.

it'll be interesting to see if the challenger to Mimi is more blue dog democrat or hard core liberal.

2 of the main challengers so far are both UCI law professors and both have some previous policy experience working with US Senators.

Mimi Walters was hand selected by the elite and her challengers have never been able to fundraise.

Since you created this thread regarding Mimi Waters and you have her picture as your sn avatar on TI.

Are you going to the town hall meeting?


Has anyone met Mimi Walters at community events, town halls or been able to get useful info from her staff?

I've lived in a bunch of districts over the years (both R and D) and generally at least the staff is accessible.

Her social media presence is amusing too. Very tone deaf to her constituents. Anyway, curious if anyone else has had experience with her?

Also, have seen some stories about abuse in a couple biz she used to own. Basically taking millions in CA tax payer dollars, ripping off her contractors and then shutting down the biz (kind of like Trump)? She then hired a chief of staff who had to resign last year due to federal corruption charges.

I thought it was a phone conference with pre-screened questions only; not a town hall meeting in the traditional sense.

The website says May 1st for the tele town hall meeting.
The event already passed?

Last week was the telephone call. Questions were pre-screened, no opportunity to follow up or interact and it sounded like she was reading answers off of a script.

Tonight is a town hall (with or without Mimi) at the Northwood High gym. If Mimi doesn't attend, other experts will help talk about her views and positions.
