June 26 Program- Analyzing Primary Results and Looking Towards the November Election



Speaker: Howard Wayne Esq

Howard Wayne represented San Diego in the California Legislature for six years, where he was the Chair of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.  He authored the first laws in the country to require testing of beach waters to protect human health, and to fund breast cancer treatment for poor women.  His also established the San Diego Airport Authority and city-wide curbside recycling.
An adept political analyst, Howard told our club two years ago that a Trump path to victory was through the upper Midwest.  That was exactly what happened the following November when Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin voted Republican.  He came back in December to explain why that happened.
Howard will discuss political trends, where we are now, and how the fall elections may well turn out.
