JoAnn O’Meara 12/2/2014

Announcements: JoAnn O’Meara got us all in the spirit of Christmas as she gave us the “itinerary” for the Christmas Party. And PARTY it most certainly is, with; Christmas Carols & Spirits at 6:00, followed by Dinner & Spirits at 6:30, followed by Santa & Kids (lots of them) at 7:30, followed by Keith’s infamous Chinese Auction at 8:30, followed by dismissal at 9:30 and finally, to bed in your own home by 10:00 PM. She indicated that the cost is $29 for Rotarians and $46 for spouses and/or guests. Don’t forget a gift not to exceed $25 if you wish to be a party to the Chinese Auction Gift Exchange and/or “Battle”. The choices for food include; Salmon, Prime Rib, or Vegetarian Plate. Santa will be “gifting” the children and special guests from Camp Pendleton, so if you bring your children, see that Santa gets your gift. Joe Sarnecky read a special “Thank You” card from Kate and Eric Rubalcava with appreciation from them for the cute “Monkey” stuffed doll for Mateo Gunnar Rubalcava that weighed-in at 6 lbs 10 oz and 19 inches tall on October 29, 2014. I seem to recall that Ricky Graham took home the prize money for guessing the correct “date of arrival” for young Mateo. (Ed note: my recollection is that it was Ricky Sharp).

Student Guests: WOW!! Did we have a room full of Student Guests. First, Charter member Davey Jones outlined what Rotary is all about. Where upon, Jim Czarnowski introduced these truly “outstanding” youngsters representing the best of the student body from Martin Luther King Middle School. They included; Imani Vandenberg, Janai Robinson, Clint Grant, and Danielle Smith. These students were selected by their ASB piers as being the outstanding students for the semester, having embodied the spirit and personal achievement, reflecting most admirably the “Code of Conduct” at their fine school. Their speeches and goals were superior and we all look forward to seeing them once again when they get to El Camino High School.Happy Dollars: Our Finemaster, Dr. Jones garnered $30 from Julie for the Chargers win along with her birthday, which she cleverly disguised with a “lump sum” payment for the two occasions! It was a double “whammie”for both President Mychal and Judy, as they both celebrate December birthdays a day apart after the bombs fell on Pearl Harbor, although I don’t believe that either was born, nor remembers the 12/7 date. Rob Taylor “forked over” $16 for hauling in 16 “legal” lobsters that he netted on a recent fishing trip. Joe “Pawp” or is it “Pop” as his grandchildren refer to him as, donated a ten spot for he and Cathy’s trip to New York City and attendance at Radio City Musical Hall, where Joe could not keep his eyes off of those gorgeous Rockettes. Program: Ensign Sarnecky introduced fellow Aviator Bob “Camo” Gleisberg, Joe’s neighbor and Marine Corps Veteran. Mr. Gleisberg, a budget analyst at Camp Pendleton, garnered second place in a field of 8 candidates vying for three seats on the Oceanside Unified School District Board of Trustees. Bob presented an outstanding program regarding the time and costs of running for the elected position which rewards very little pay nor benefits. Some interesting facts were that the three top vote getters, Emily Wichman (an incumbent), Bob Gleisberg, and Ann Corwin ran 19%, 16%, and 15.5% respectively in the initial “mail-in” ballots, and that is nearly the same as the final counts in the balloting at the conclusion of the race. Bob asks the question; Do you wish to be a candidate for elected office? If the answer is “yes” then;

  • Do you consider yourself to be the BEST qualified?
  • What education, experience, and skill sets can you promote to the electorate?
  • Have you validated that you are a viable candidate with key community leaders?
  • Can you expand your name recognition with multiple voting segments?
  • Name your key influential supporters and list your critical support groups! Meanwhile, here is a list from Bob of the filing documents from the County of San Diego; Declaration of Candidacy Form 501- Candidate Intention Statement
  • Form 700- Statement of Economic Interests
  • Ballot Designation Worksheet
  • Code of Fair Campaign Practices
  • Professional Governance Standards Now for the State of California “Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC)
  • Form 410 – Statement of Organization
  • Form 460 -Recipient Committee Campaign Statement
  • Form 470 -Campaign Statement Next, you must consider the personal decisions regarding the cost of the campaign;
  • Campaign Bank account and IRS Tax ID Number

  • Remit Envelopes
  • Campaign Banners and Posters
