Click here to view Vern Nelson's report on our past Thursday's action against Prop 8

The GOP consulting firm Schubert Flint Public Affairs is led by Frank Schubert and Jeff Flint, who also co-manage the Yes on 8 campaign.

The firm has announced an Open House to be held this Thursday, August 14th from 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm to celebrate the opening of their new Irvine office:

If you are able to get over to Irvine this Thursday evening, I've prepared a flyer that you can download, print out and take with you to distribute to visitors to the 2020 Main Bldg: Schubert Flint Protest Flyer Download (PDF)

You can find a map to the building here: 2020 Main St. Map

This is a golden opportunity to interact with the principals, staff and clients of the leading PR firm behind the latest effort to ban gay marriage in California.

If you live in Orange County, oppose Proposition 8, and can afford to donate three hours of your time this week, I invite you to spend those three hours this Thursday evening in front of 2020 Main in Irvine.

If you're interested in participating, please leave your comments below. Thanks!

FYI, I work in 2020 Main, and the parking attendants leave by 6:30 everyday, so those attending that night do not need to worry about paying for parking if they stay past 6:30.

Chino, just read your comment on JMG. I'm on the ECCO Board of Directors ( and sent this info out to other board members. (I'm in NY so can't attend.) If you'd like to be added to our mailing list for Voter Guides, send me an email at

Chino -- I published your comment but I would like to give it a little more exposure by posting an "Action Alert" on my blog ( about your planned demo. I have a couple of questions but, unfortunately, I couldn't find an email address or any other kind of contact info for you.

Please contact me at as soon as possible so I can get this posted ASAP.

Thanks for the info.

chino like steve above I posted an action alert on my blog but would like to include an email or number for people to contact you. feel free to swing by my blog and leave it as a comment, thanks.

Steve Krotz said...

Chino - just posted your update info - thanks. I wish I were back in CA (I lived there for about 15 years), I would LOVE to go to this!

Chino Blanco said...

Steve - I hear ya' - I'm so wishing I was still local.

Anyway, wanna know what really makes you a hero?

Vern sent me his telephone number as 714-235-VERN (obviously he assumed I'd have a clue about how to translate VERN into actual digits).

After popping over to your blog, lo and behold, you've spared me the trouble and provided the missing digits:

Vern's number is 714-235-8376.

You rock!

terrierchica said...

ah, this post answers my question about your real leanings. way to go!

Steve Krotz said...

terrierchica - I'm confused - who is your post directed to and what are you referring to?

Chino Blanco said...

Hey Steve,

What are you guys doing commenting on this old thread? I need your help over on the new one!

Steve Krotz said...

Hi There Chino...

I'm posting here because after you linked me to your site I get emails whenever anyone puts up a new post.

I was curious about who and what the last poster was referring to...

I'll go back to your home page and check out what you need help on.

BTW - we can use some major help here in AZ on our anti-gay marriage amendment fight - everyone is donating huge amounts to California but the most that's been raised here is $8,000. What's wrong with this picture? (I just found this out myself from a posting at
