Dear Gary,
The next general membership meeting of the San Fernando Valley Republican Club will be on Tuesday, March 7, 2006 at 7:00pm at Galpin Ford, 15555 Roscoe Blvd., (Just east of the 405) 2nd Floor Meeting Room, North Hills.

We will have the following candidates speak to us and answer questions. We might have other candidates who we will introduce as well.

Gary Aminoff, President

Candidate for Attorney General
Main Speaker - Ambassador Pierre Prosper
Main Guest Speaker: Ambassador Pierre Prosper, Candidate for Attorney General. Part of our "Meet the Candidate" series.

Pierre Prosper has directly advised President George W. Bush as well as Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and General Colin Powell. Prosper informed U. S. policy responses during the earliest stages of the War on Terror as well as atrocities committed in areas of conflict. As President Bush's envoy, Prosper negotiated with heads of state, senior intelligence and military officials from around the world to help secure peace, build stability and expand the rule of law in fledgling democracies. Prosper, a lead prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, achieved the first successful conviction for Genocide, and Rape as a Crime Against Humanity. The fourteen month trial was a groundbreaking success for the rights of women, ethnic and religious minorities in developing countries and those threatened by oppressive regimes across the globe. Prosper's legacy is his dedication to conservative values and dominant American principles of equal justice under the law.

In June 1970, Ken began his career as a deputy with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. After graduating from the Academy, he held assignments at the Hall of Justice Jail, Civic Center Security Unit, Norwalk Station and the Training Bureau.
