Holiday Party: December 16th

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

We will not be holding a meeting this month. We will next meet on Tuesday, January 8th.

This weekend, we are proud to partner with the San Diego Democrats for Equality, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Democratic Club, the San Diego Labor Democratic Club, the Veterans Democratic Club, and the San Diego Progressive Democratic Club for our annual Holiday potluck this Sunday, December 16th. It will be at the Vantage Point Apartments 3rd Floor Clubhouse in Downtown San Diego. Address is 1281 Ninth Ave, San Diego 92101. Let us know what you’re bringing on this form here.

If you would like to join, or renew your club membership ($20 dues), please do so on our membership page. You may also renew at the meeting. Or, if you would prefer to mail a check, here is our PO Box information:

It is our shared responsibility to ensure that people are informed, educated, and not mystified by stage craft, economic bribery or the feeling of helplessness. We have so many exciting things in store for our Clairemont Democratic Club members. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you at one (but hopefully all) of our meetings and events.

Congratulations to City Council President Georgette Gómez!


Today, HERstory was made in a momentous way.

Longtime club member, former club Vice President, and Councilmember Georgette Gómez was unanimously selected to be our new San Diego City Council President!

Thank you to all of our club members who made it into City Council chambers today to speak in favor of our Georgette.

On a personal note, I want to say how proud I am of Georgette.

In 2012, we were part of the first class of graduates through the San Diego LGBT Center’s Young Professionals Council Academy. They asked all of us towards the end of the Academy where we see ourselves in the next 5 years, and I remember Georgette saying that she wanted to be a member of the San Diego Planning Commission.

Safe to say that she blew past that goal.

Here is Georgette’s bio from that inaugural 2012 YPC Academy:

Georgette Gómez
Georgette is the associate director of the Toxic Free Neighborhoods Campaign at Environmental Health Coalition. Georgette has focused on improving the health and environment of low-income communities adversely affected by pollution due to discriminatory land use policies that limit the quality of life. Gómez graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Environmental and Natural Resource Geography Policy-Analysis.

Georgette, you’ve come so far and I know we’ve got so far to go. Our club members, myself — your family at San Diego Democrats for Equality — we are so proud to see the leader you are and the incredible things we have yet to see.

Again, congratulations to San Diego City Council President Georgette Gómez!

Also, I want to highlight these milestones made today:

  • San Diego’s first Queer Latina Council President
  • San Diego City Council’s first female majority
  • San Diego City Council is 1/3 LGBT
  • San Diego City Council Democratic Super Majority
  • 8/12 people on the dias were women. (Includes: San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliot, IBA Andrea Tevlin and San Diego City Clerk Liz Maland)
  • Unanimous, bipartisan, unity for Council President

In Solidarity,

Will Rodriguez-Kennedy
President
San Diego Democrats for Equality
