Governor Martinez is the head honcho of the National Republican Governor’s Association and this week she brought her fellow GOP governors (and some very well connected lobbyists and conservative donors) to the swanky Tamaya resort at Santa Ana.
And this time, before they filled up their room block at the hotel, some local progressive families and activists got a room.
So, of course, things got fun!
Their room reservations got them a pass to get through the line of big black SUVs and burly security officers.
Organizers with the Southwest Organizing Project and OLÈ bumped into Governor Martinez and presented her with a very special award – and she posed for a picture!
Hats off to the SWOPistas and OLÈ!
Do yourself a favor and like our friends at OLÈ and SWOP on Facebook. You’ll be glad you did!
