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.
As announced at our June meeting after the presentation by clubmember Joe LaCava, we will also consider taking a position on “No On Soccer City”. If you want to do more research before your vote a good start would be the website https://noonsoccercity.com/.
Our main speaker for the evening, Steve Rivera, will guide us in understanding how the Democratic Party is structured on the County level, through to the State and National levels.
We also are planning to have representatives from Emerge CA discuss what they do and how to apply. Emerge is a training program for Democratic women who are thinking of running for office. As the deadline for their next yearly class is coming up in mid-September, this is the time to get information and make decisions. Applications are due September 1.
For members who have expressed interest in running for the Central Committee vacancies in the 36th and the 38th State Senate Districts, the elections will take place on August 18th at 2 pm right at the start of the regularly scheduled North Area Caucus endorsement meeting held at 11031 Via Frontera Suite A. San Diego, 92127. Any registered Democrat that lives in the district may run for the position. Candidates will be allowed to speak before the vote takes place. If you have any further questions, please contact Andrea Duran Aydoğan, Operations Coordinator, San Diego County Democratic Party, (858) 277-3367.
We are co-hosting an event for Sunday Gover, our endorsed candidate for the 77th Assembly District, on September 9th with a special discount for members of the Democratic Woman’s Club of only $50, regular guest entry is $100.
