Re:       Up coming event for Richmond City Councilman

            Harpreet Sandhu, (see the attached invite)


I would like to invite you to come to a fundraising event for a long time friend of mine, Harpreet Sandhu who was appointed to the Richmond City Council only a few months ago. When I first met Harpreet some 20 plus years ago I knew he had the special combination of humility, intellect, compassion and integrity that is missing in so many human beings these days. A person, though kind and thoughtful, has demonstrated that he has the toughness of his convictions and yet has the ability to work with others in collaboration; ultimately what those elected to public office are supposed to do.


I have no illusions that the 2008 Richmond City Council Campaign will be an easy one, it will be a big challenge for Harpreet to win, but I believe the citizens of the City of Richmond are fair minded, tolerant of those that are different than them and want the best persons to represent them; in the end we can only hope that he will be judged by his works and not by who and what we think he is.


Thank you for your kind consideration of this request


P.S.      If you would be so kind, I would appreciate it if you could send this note and the attached invitation to those on your e-mail list.
