Club Meeting: August 14

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

Jess Durfee, the only San Diego-area member of the DNC and former chair of our county Democratic Party, will be our guest speaker on Tuesday, August 14th.

We will also be following-up on endorsement recommendations for U.S. Senate and San Diego Community College District E. We’ll also hear from Joe LaCava representing No on Soccer City, and Brian Gruters representing the Clairemont Coalition on Homelessness.

Finally, we’ll also hear about our club’s successful efforts at Clairemont Family Day.

If you have suggestions or ideas about meeting topics or event types that you’d like us to host, please email them to me or visit our Facebook page.

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.
