Club Meeting Tomorrow & ADEMS!

This week, teachers in Los Angeles Unified went on strike advocating for higher pay, more nurses and counselors, and smaller class sizes.

Our next club meeting is this Thursday at 7:00pm at Joyce Beerss Community Center in Hillcrest (3900 Vermont Street)!

We will be holding elections for positions for Club Representative for the Democratic Party, and GO Team liaison. We will also select our Nominating Committee for club officer elections to be held in February.

Also, We’ll be welcoming guest speakers from our brothers and sisters at the San Diego Labor Democratic Club for a “Labor 101” presentation.

The timing of this presentation could not be more appropriate given events of the past week. 35,000 teachers in Los Angeles Unified are on strike for the first time in more than 30 years, advocating for higher wages, more nurses and counselors, and smaller class sizes. In solidarity, thousands of parents and students have joined the marches.

Finally, the last round of ADEM elections are coming up this month! Assembly District elections are held every two years to elect delegates to our state party’s convention. 14 delegates (7 self-identified females, and 7 self-identified males) and 1 executive board representative are elected per Assembly District.

If you are not sure which Assembly District you live in, please check your address at this website.

Congratulations to club members Evlyn Andrade-Heymsfield and Ryan Darsey who were elected delegates in AD 71!

Congratulations to club members Bernadette Butkiewicz, Gretchen Newsom, Codi Vierra, Jordan Beane, Joe LaCava, Kevin Lourens, and Brian Polejes who were elected delegates in AD 78!

Make Your Voice Heard in the California State Democratic Party

Local delegates are important voices in shaping the direction for the California Democratic Party. Delegates are elected from each assembly district in the state every two years. The next round of election meetings is coming in January. Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in voting in delegate selection.

The meetings where delegates are selected are called Assembly District Election Meetings or ADEMs. Each Assembly District elects 14 people to represent them as delegates to the California Democratic Party’s annual convention. These delegates are also known as members of the Democratic State Central Committee. They vote on Party endorsements, resolutions, internal leadership elections and other matters. Many participate in CDP committees and caucuses.

At each meeting, seven “self-identified female” and seven “other than self-identified female” delegates will be elected. Voters will also elect one person from that group of 14 to represent that district as a member of the CDP Executive Board, who is expected to attend additional meetings around the state each year to vote on State Party business.

The regular spring convention will be May 31-June 2 in San Francisco, with a second convention likely in November due to the early primary election in March 2020.

When and where are the meetings?

AD 71 When: Saturday, January 12 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Where: El Cajon Public Library, 201 East Douglas Avenue, El Cajon, CA 92020 Convener: Bonnie Price (619) 741–6811

Vote for your fellow Woman’s Club members running for ADEM elections starting this weekend

The Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEMs) are held every two years to elect 14 delegates from each Assembly District to serve as your representatives at the California Democratic Party convention. These elections begin this Saturday.

The following are the scheduled ADEMs in San Diego County. Listed are current members of Democratic Woman’s Club of San Diego who are running to give voice to our concerns as party delegates.

The ADEMs are open to all registered Democrats in the respective district to attend and cast votes. Any non-Democrat may also attend, and by re-registering as a Democrat at the ADEM, may cast a vote.

The top seven women and top seven men (or identifying as other-than-female) vote-getters will be selected as Assembly District Delegates. You will need two ballots, one for delegate selection and one for your Executive Board vote. Please encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to attend your local ADEM. You must be present to vote. You do not have to stay around after you vote but it’s a lot of fun and the votes you cast play a large role in how our state party addresses and prioritizes issues you care about!
