August 1, 2007:
The annual LAD picnic was held at Pat Davis’ house.
Featured speakers were State Democratic Party Chairwoman Pat Waak, State Senator Brandon Shaffer, and CD4 candidates Betsy Markey and Angie Paccione. Local city council and mayoral candidates in attendance were Karen Benker running for mayor, and Sean McCoy, Ariel Steele and Gabe Santos, all running for various council positions. They were introduced to the party attendees.
The picnic was a huge success, attended by 80+ people. Several Republicans picketed the party from across the street.
