Bay Area's Rising Tide

On Saturday afternoon I was excited to join hundreds of Bay Area Republican activists and leaders at the outstanding annual Rising Tide event in Atherton. What a great showcase of Republican energy, leadership and activism right in the heart of the Bay Area.

When I spoke at least year’s event, I thought the organizers would have a hard time outdoing themselves this year, but they did. Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner served as the keynote speaker, with a long list of Republican elected and appointed officials, plus candidates, present.

Particularly innovative, yet appropriate for the Bay Area, was a technology tent highlighting websites and video from our candidates, plus video cameras set up to take testimonials in support of our Republican candidates. First class.

This year’s event was sponsored by the Republican committees of Contra Costa and Santa Clara counties, the CWLA, Lead 21, the Republican Jewish Coalition, the Lincoln Club of Northern California, and SPARC. I haven’t received the report on total attendance, but it must have easily cruised past 300.

From our CRP Board of Directors, I was joined at the event by Vice Chairman Tom DelBeccaro, CCA President Keen Butcher, and Regional Vice Chair Luis Buhler.
