July 31, 2018 (Alpine) – Congressional candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar will be at a meet and greet open to the public at the Alpine Community Center on August 25th from 1 to 3 p.m. The event is hosted by Alpine resident Anne Craig-Tillmond.
Campa-Najjar is facing off in November against incumbent Congressman Duncan D. Hunter. The meet and greet offers an opportunity for Alpine and surrounding area residents to get a closer look and listen to the challenger and his platform.
Food and beverages will be served; Campa-Najjar will speak at 1:30 p.m., followed by a question and answer session.
Campa-Najjar was born in East County, the son of a working-class mother who raised him with help from family and neighbors. From his first job as a church janitor to serving in the White House where he advocated for small businesses and fought for American workers, he says he's devoted his life to service.
"I’ve spent years listening to what keeps people up at night. I don’t care about your personal politics. I care about your personal health, safety, and financial future," states Campa-Najjar, who has indicated he is not accepting corporate donations, in order to be beholden only to constituents in the 50th Congressional District.
Rep. Hunter has taken hefty corporate donations and is currently under federal investigation for alleged spending tens of thousands of campaign donations on personal use, with a grand jury convened in the case.
If you're planning on attending, please RSVP directly to Anne Craig-Tillmond at MeetAmmarAlpine@earthlink.net or you may phone her at 818-439-0250.
