John Burton, the prior chair of the California Democratic Party, celebrated his 85th birthday at the Fairmont Hotel the other night, and wow, what a fantastic time it was. Burton has done it all - congressman, assemblyman, Democratic chairman, and state senate leader. This incredible man is known for his epic role in politics, and was celebrated by a large crowd of supporting people.
There were many familiar faces in the crowd, including lovely Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi is serving as the minority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, and has made quite the impact herself. Willie Brown, politician, came to show his support for the congressman, and so did DL Hugheley, a political commentator.
There were many speakers that showed their attendance in support of Burton. The room was filled with pride, passion, and laughter, as these people made many remarks about the successes of John Burton. He was known for his quick wit, sharp political instincts, and his endless charm. It was apparent that he had many supporters and countless friends in attendance.
The birthday party was a non profit event where all the proceeds will go to John Burton Advocates for Youth. This organization was founded by John Burton himself, with a goal to improve the quality of life for California’s foster, former foster, and homeless youth. This non-profit party truly speaks character of Burton, as he is not only a politician, but a servant for the people. If you are inspired by the efforts of Burton to help the youth of America, please donate to his non-profit organization by clicking this link http://www.jbaforyouth.org.
Burton’s birthday celebrations are always quite successful, leaving guests interested and excited about future celebrations. Happy birthday to this hard working and successful man. May he have a blessed new year.
