The local Toastmasters club, Coast Toasters, will feature Rachel Binah as their speaker at an Open House Toastmasters Meeting at the Redwood Coast Senior Center in Fort Bragg, at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, October 31st. The title of her presentation will be “How I Will Vote — General Election, Tuesday, November 6th.” We invite you to come hear Rachel’s choices, and rationale for her decisions. Then, it’s up to you to make your own choices and VOTE on November 6th. Although she will describe her choices for candidates and propositions, they are personal and in no way meant to reflect the views of the Toastmasters Club. Bring your voter information pamphlets so you can make some notes. We also encourage attendees to come in costume, especially if you have Halloween plans for after the meeting. If you're stumped for costume ideas, consider dressing as your favorite politician, living or dead.
