All members and their friends are invited to take part to celebrate our Blue Wave! Clubmember Jimmy Tabb will be driving his Gran Torino convertible, and we’ll have a truck and a boat! Dress blue, make yourself glow, be sure you’re well lit (!)

We’ll be joined by Jen Campbell, our newly elected City Councilmember for District 2.

We’ll have a pre-parade party a few blocks away from the parade starting at 3pm, address provided when you RSVP by emailing us at [email protected].

We’ll gather between Sunset and Ebers on Newport (section A) at 4:30pm ready for the Parade start at 5:05pm.

Nov 25 – Meet Jennifer Campbell Our Newly Elected Representative for District 2!

True to her word, Dr. Jen Campbell is coming to our first meeting after the election to listen to her community in District 2.

I will listen to the concerns of our neighbors throughout District 2. My goal is to work together to improve our communities, preserve and maintain our City’s positive attributes, beautify areas that need enhancement, and bring about an even better San Diego.
Dr. Jen Campbell

Come along to celebrate Jen’s election victory, and to discuss policies and priorities for her first year in office.

Nathan Fletcher, our newly elected representative for the County Board of Supervisors District 4, has also been invited but at this time we’re still awaiting confirmation from his office.


We’ll also discuss plans for our participation in the OB Holiday Parade on Saturday December 1,  and our Annual Holiday Party on Sunday December 2.


After a fabulous local election cycle, now’s the time to start building for 2020.

California has moved its Primary forward to Super Tuesday in the first week of March, so campaigning will start early next year.

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.
