SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The San Clemente Area Republican Women Federated (SCARWF) hosted its summer fundraiser on Aug. 20, inviting many Orange County Republicans and city council candidates to attend the event that’s meant to support scholarships for high school area students.
The evening aboard a wine tasting cruise in Dana Point Harbor included local dignitaries such as acting Mayor Laura Ferguson, who gave a review on the current state of the city, as well as fellow Councilmember Gene James, who is seeking reelection this year.
Other city council hopefuls Aaron Washington and Bill Hart also attended the event, and each addressed the group with their vision and plans for the city, while also participating in a Q&A session.
According to SCARWF, all of the speakers encouraged those in attendance to stay active in local issues that will improve the quality of life and safety for the residents of San Clemente.
