Hello, Clairemont Democrats!
Will Rodriguez-Kennedy, newly elected Chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party, will be our guest speaker for our next meeting on Tuesday, March 12th!
Will is a United States Marine Corps veteran who overcame homelessness after being discharged under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Afterwards, he became an activist in the LGBT community, was elected Co-Chair of San Diego LGBT Pride, and elected Club President of San Diego Democrats for Equality. Last year, he was elected President of the California Young Democrats and was hired by the California Democratic Party as their Millennial Outreach Coordinator.
At 31, he is the youngest county Democratic Party Chair among 10 largest counties in the country — and we are happy to welcome him as our guest speaker!
Also, we will be conducting elections for our club’s Executive Board at our March 12th meeting. Positions up for elections include:
- Club President
- Vice President
Hospitality Chair, I.T. Chair, Membership Chair, and Political Action Chair are appointed positions. If you are interested in serving on our board, please let us know!
Finally, you may’ve heard that we were nominated for CLUB OF THE YEAR last month by the San Diego County Democratic Party’s Council of Clubs. Although we did not win, we are thrilled to have been nominated, and are excited for our friends at Fallbrook Democratic Club. They will be honored at our party’s upcoming Roosevelt Dinner this year.

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.
