Wesley Clark - Tahoe's Friend Of The Month

Wesley Clark is Tahoe's friend of the day, the week, the month. Heck, he may even turn out to be Tahoe's friend of the year.

Through his WesPAC he helps federal, statewide and local candidates by not only endorsing them but by putting them on his ActBlue page.

Of the hundreds, if not thousands, of candidates he is raising money for 20 candidates through his ActBlue page and 2 (!) of them are Tahoe candidates. That makes 10%. Ten percent for Tahoe. Wow!

Both candidates are running for the House of Representatives. Jill Derby in Nevada's 2nd Congressional District and Charlie Brown in California's 4th Congressional District.

Now, I haven't made my mind up yet about 2008 presidential candidates. After all, it's still not quite clear who will run and who won't. That said, Wesley Clark really scored some points with me. Go Wes!

Wow is right!! I'm a long-time "Clarkie" and just moved back to Tahoe after being away for more than 30 years! Saw the link to your blog on CCN (Clark Community Network), and clicked over pronto!


I just connected this morning (via email) with the Douglas County Dem party Co-Chair, (through the NV group at DU), who informed me of her "new" Nevada for Clark group! as well as the Blue Lake Tahoe Dems!

General Clark has been tirelessly and endlessly traveling the country, stumping for Dem candiates and working to get our country back on track.

Check out his amazing schedule just for this year!:


If you have any questions, or would like any information at all re: General Clark, come on over to WesPAC - Securing America:


Tons of information on home page, and from there you can click on "community" link which will take you to our blog - Clark Community Network (CCN).

And we WILL keep Lake Tahoe Blue!!
