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.

Post-Primary Endorsements This Month!

Democrats for Equality,

Yesterday, we sent out a call-to-action e-mail for the two special elections next Tuesday (May 12th).

If you would like to help out with some calls or texts to voters to help elect Elizabeth Romero in State Senate District 28, and/or Christy Smith in Congressional District 25, we added all the volunteer links to our website here.

I want to thank everyone who participated in our special Zoom check-in meeting last weekend.

All things considered it was quite successful, and I want to thank our Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins and Assemblymember Todd Gloria for providing us a statewide update on the COVID-19 crisis.

Also, thank you to Coastal Commission Chair and Chula Vista Councilmember Steve Padilla for giving us his time to provide a personal perspective on the pandemic. It was a little emotional hearing everything he experienced and went through, but we are so thankful that he’s okay and recovering!

And of course another thank you to Carlsbad Councilmember Cori Schumacher for administering the oath of office to our newly elected executive board!

We also want to remind you about getting your Census 2020 form completed! If you haven’t filled out your form, make sure you’re counted. You can fill out an online Census form here.

Finally, let this e-mail serve as notice that we will be conducting another Zoom meeting for our next club meeting on Thursday, May 21st.

The meeting will start at 6:30pm, but if you are able to log on earlier, we will have the Zoom open and ready at 6:00pm so we can credential and check-in all of our voting members and guests.

First, we will consider 3 post-primary, non-controversial endorsements on consent:

  • Terra Lawson-Remer for County Supervisor District 3
  • Sabrina Bazzo for San Diego Unified District A
  • Kate Schwartz for State Assembly District 75

Then, we will conduct two endorsement considerations for National City City Council and San Diego Unified District E.

Once we have the Zoom meeting link and call-in information we will send that out.

Looking forward to seeing/hearing from everyone again in a couple weeks!

I love you all,

Ryan Trabuco
Club President

Call to Action: Elect Democrats in May 12th Special Elections

Democrats for Equality,

Next Tuesday (May 12) there are two special elections happening that the California Democratic Party has issued calls to action for. Both are all-mail-ballot elections.

There is a special election happening just north of us in the Coachella Valley for State Senate District 28. Our Democratic nominee is Elizabeth Romero, a member of the Riverside County Board of Education, and Vice Chancellor at UC Riverside. She is facing off against one of the most right-wing conservative members of the state legislature, Assemblymember Melissa Melendez.

Elizabeth Romero is endorsed by Equality California, Inland Empire Labor Council, Planned Parenthood, as well as our own State Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins, and Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez.

If you would like to make some virtual phone bank calls for Elizabeth Romero, please sign-up to volunteer at this link.

The other special election is in Congressional District 25, covering Simi Valley, Santa Clarita, and much of the Antelope Valley. Our Democratic nominee is Assemblymember Christy Smith. She’s facing off against a Trump Republican in a race that may have national implications, especially given the federal government’s response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Christy Smith is endorsed by Equality California, International Association of Fire Fighters, National Union of Healthcare Workers, and the Los Angeles Times among countless other labor, educational, and environmental organizations.

Our sister club, the Stonewall Democratic Club in Los Angeles, is making texts and calls for Christy Smith.

If you would like to help text for Christy Smith, please sign-up to at this link. Or if you would like to help make calls, please sign-up at this link.

I love you all,

Ryan Trabuco
Club President
