Political Potpourri: Oct. 9, 2010

Local schools received surplus books from the Library of Congress.

Congressman Tom McClintock’s chief of staff and the congressional district director distributed books at Bear River and Nevada Union high schools, and at Alta Sierra Elementary School on Friday.

Talk politics over coffee with Democratic Congressional candidate Clint Curtis today.

Curtis will be at Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters, 671 Maltman Dr. in Grass Valley, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The Roseville resident is running for 4th District U.S. Congress against incumbent Republican Tom McClintock and Green party candidate Ben Emery.

He is focused on bringing more funding and more jobs to the district, protecting water and the environment, ending political bickering, and promoting an all-inclusive method to governance in Congress, according to his campaign.
