On Sat. Sept. 24, the FAU College Democrats (FAUCD) hosted guest speakers from all levels of American politics.

State Senators David Aronberg and Kelly Skidmore were among those who spoke.

Fundraising for the Florida College Democrats (FCD) was the focus of the meeting. According to FAUCD President Boris Bastidas, money raised at the event didn’t go the FAUCD,  it went to the FCD. Bastidas also claimed the FAUCD didn’t spend any money.

FAU College Republicans VP Jeff Arnold also showed up, and debated with guest speakers on religion and public policy.

A fairly low turnout led the fundraiser to start late as the College Democrats waited for people to fill the room. Photo by Christine Capozziello.

Former Congressman Ron Klein was scheduled to speak, but couldn’t attend due to a family emergency involving  a close friend’s death earlier that day. Kelly Skidmore spoke on his behalf.
