Oct 28 – General Meeting – Ballot Party, Propositions & Measures, Bring Your Friends and Neighbors

Election time is upon us!

Vote by mail ballots started arriving this week. GO Team volunteers started walking their precincts last weekend. The voter registration deadline is October 22nd, and on Sunday October 28th we’ll be talking through the Propositions and Ballot Measures.

To help us understand the State Propositions and Local Ballot Measures we have guest speakers Anne Hoiberg and Cody Petterson, who will explain the pros and cons and field questions from members.

If you haven’t yet voted bring your ballots or voter guides with you and check off your decisions as we go along. Feel free to invite friends and neighbors who are looking for some partisan Democratic guidance.


The clubs endorsed candidates are:


Thanks to Damian Carroll @carrolldamian, National Director , here is an easy guide to the State Propositions as haikus.

Sep 23 – General Meeting – Proposed Bylaw Changes

At our September 23, 2018 meeting we’ll be considering changes to our Bylaws.

Here’s the link to the existing Bylaws of the Point Loma Democratic Club (PDF) – October 25, 2015

Proposed Bylaw revisions to be discussed at the September 23, 2018 General Meeting:

Please read through the changes before the meeting, and if you have any questions feel free to email [email protected] or call (619) 800-5098.

We owe a debt of gratitude to Dave Furlano, Chair Bylaws Committee, for hosting multiple meetings and keeping track of all of the suggested changes, and to everyone who served on the committee – but the changes can only be made if approved by you, the members, at a General Meeting. So, please review and come along with any suggestions to further improve the governance of the club.

The bylaws discussion will only take up part of the program for the September meeting.

Banner Competition

You’ve seen the banner in action at club meetings and events, the OB Street Fair, Pride, and OB Holiday Parade. It tells people our name, but it can do more than that.

It could incorporate our friendly logo, show our website address, Twitter handle or Facebook name. It could more graphically represent our values, and where we’re coming from, figuratively as well as literally. Perhaps it needs a splash of color, or an image of a lighthouse?

There’s no end of possibilities and we’d like you, or someone you can persuade, badger or cajole into helping, to come up with new designs.

We’ll use a horizontal banner for carrying in parades and at event booths, and a vertical banner at meetings and as a neat background in photographs.

You don’t have to be a graphic designer, you just have to outline your ideas. Sure, you can submit your entries as .SVG files ready for printing, but you can also just sketch them on the back of a napkin!

At the September 23rd meeting, we’ll pin up the ideas, sketches, designs at the Point Loma Assembly (and post them online) and let clubmembers tell us which ones we should move forward with. At that stage we’ll solicit help from a professional and work up the designs based on the technical requirements for printing on vinyl.

Every entry will receive a prize and the winner(s), as well as enjoying seeing their design at every meeting, will receive free club membership at the Patron level for 2018.

Any questions please email [email protected] or call (619) 800-5098.

This month we’re excited to feature a great panel of speakers on the upcoming ballot initiatives focused on the site of the current San Diego County Credit Union Stadium – AKA Qualcomm Stadium, Jack Murphy Stadium and originally San Diego Stadium.

Each of our panelists will give a 10 minute presentation, followed by 5 minutes for questions on their segment. After all the presenters have been heard, there will be an additional 15 minutes for general questions from our members.

We hereby notice that at our July 29, 2018 meeting we will consider taking a position on the ballot initiatives involving the Stadium.


We also hereby notice that at our July 29, 2018 meeting we will consider an endorsement for San Diego City Council District 2, where clubmember Jen Campbell is in the runoff against incumbent Lori Zapf. Our endorsed candidate Jordan Beane has already endorsed Jen for this strategically critical race.
