Da Speaker/Da Mayor/Da Columnist
Thursday night Junior Statesmen had a "Cocktails and Conversations" event in San Francisco featuring Willie Brown, the former Speaker of the California Assembly, Mayor of San Francisco and now a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle and television commentator.
In the photo above Mr. Brown is being interviewed by one of Junior Statesmen's Northern California leaders.
It was a lovely event and I enjoyed the opportunity to visit with so many alums, current students and others. After the event a mother of one of the students who had been part of the program was nearly in tears as she explained to me she had just seen her daughter speak in public for the first time.
