Presumed GOP congressional nominee Nick Gerber of Moraga, a considerable underdog in the race against six-term Democratic incumbent Ellen Tauscher in a heavily Democratic district, is making up for what he lacks in cash with excessive creativity.
Gerber will host the free goGerber.org Earth Day Event on April 19, 11am – 3 p.m., in Civic Park in Walnut Creek.
Bring the kids, he says, for bead making, face painting, paper airplane contests, crafts and games, a raffle and a giveaway of 500 reusable grocery store bags.
He doesn’t mention it but I’m pretty sure Gerber wants you to bring along your checkbook, too.
But the last time I saw Gerber, he still sported quite a bit of facial hair. If he expects to get his face painted — a nice shade of green in honor of the day, perhaps? — he’ll have to step up that fund-raising.
