For years, conservative union members have complained about having to pay mandatory dues to left-leaning unions that spent the money on liberal causes they vehemently disagreed with. One 28-year elementary school teacher finally said NO! Friedrichs, who has an op-ed each Sunday in the Orange County Register, challenged both the California and national teachers’ unions. Her case was the first of its kind heard in the United States Supreme Court. The community is invited to hear Friedrichs’ journey at the Rossmoor-Los Alamitos (RLA) Republican Women Federated Saturday, February 16 breakfast meeting. Held at the conveniently located Cypress Courtyard by Marriott (5865 Katella Avenue at Valley View), the meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. with a textbook buffet breakfast.
“As someone who cares deeply about education, I so respect Rebecca for making the decision to go against the behemoth teachers’ unions,” said VP Programs Mari Barke who was elected to the Orange County Board of Education, Trustee Area 2 in June. “Thanks to Rebecca, who laid the groundwork for the United States Supreme Court to rule in favor of making union dues optional.”
The RLA club, which serves northwest Orange County cities and greater Long Beach, welcomes like-minded women and men who want to impact local, state and national politics.
The cost of the February 16 buffet breakfast meeting is $25 for members and $28 for non- members. Interest is very high to hear Rebecca Friedrichs speak and seating might be limited. Reservations can be made at: RossLosalRWF@gmail.com.
Rebecca will have books for sale for $25 cash or $27 charge. She cannot accept checks and the prices include tax.
