Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner to appear at SLO event

Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner will speak Wednesday at a gathering organized by the Lincoln Club of San Luis Obispo County and the county’s Republican Party.

The event will begin with a VIP reception at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by a general reception at 6:30 p.m. The get-together will take place at the San Luis Obispo Country Club, 255 Country Club Drive, San Luis Obispo.

A $250 “platinum” sponsorship buys two VIP tickets, a photo, and two general reception tickets. A $25 “patriot” sponsorship will purchase one general reception ticket.

The party is asking those who want to RSVP or merely acquire more information to contact Amber at 541-4010 or email exec.director@rpslo.org

According to a joint press release from the Lincoln Club and county Republicans, the 2010 candidate series “in no way implies the endorsement of candidates. The funds raised will go towards local party activities.”

Poizner’s chief opponent in the GOP primary is Meg Whitman.
