Citizen Activism
How you can be an effective activist?
Ray Lutz
Founder of Citizens’ Oversight Projects (COPS)


How can ordinary citizens exercise oversight on the malfeasance of government and industry? We are pleased to welcome Ray Lutz who has had a distinguished career as a citizen activist. He working with many others in the community to stop Blackwater from setting up a paramilitary training camp near San Diego, block the takeover of a performing arts center, and most recently brought public attention to Peeveygate: the collusion between Edison and the Public Utilities Commission. Most of you know him for his activism in helping get San Onofre closed. Ray has an advanced degree in electrical engineering and has been a candidate for AD 77 and Congressional District 52. In his spare time he is an administrator for a Montessori School and he is also author of a science vs religion novel Coils of the Serpent. Check out his long list of accomplishments on Citizens Oversight.Org.

Once again we will be returning to Agostino’s overlooking the ocean. With daylight savings time returning, we should be able to enjoy a wonderful sunset during the social hour. Thanks to everyone who sent in a timely RSVP last month so the restaurant could plan table arrangements and service. Please arrive about 5:30 so you can be finished with food and drink before the program begins at 7:00. Agostino’s is kind enough to let us use their banquet room next to the restaurant without charge because of the business we generate. If you want to speed things up, feel free to go to the bar in the restaurant and bring in your own drinks. Come early to circulate, socialize, and meet new friends. We will have name tags for everyone who sends in an RSVP. Newcomers are welcome. The Progressives of South Orange County is very informal: no membership, no dues, no officers – just come and enjoy and bring your friends. If you would like to be removed from the mailing list, please let us know. And if you know of others who might want to be included, please have them send an email request. And don’t forget to “like us” on Facebook!_
