Opportunity, Equity, Peace, Prosperity, Democracy
Coronado Democratic Club
We believe in an accountable government that promotes business, supports the American worker, provides equal access to a high-quality education, facilitates the provision of healthcare to all, protects the environment and fights climate change, designs a fair and equitable tax structure, advances the causes of peace, prosperity, and democracy at home and throughout the world and continues the traditions of freedom, equality and the pursuit of happiness provided us in the United States Constitution.
A Bit of History…Our First Meeting
in September, 1888
According to the Coronado Mercury of September 1888, “there was an enthusiastic gathering of Democrats at the old school house for the purpose of organizing a Democratic Campaign Club.” Twenty-three Democrats signed the roll at the first meeting and it was expected that at the next meeting a large number of new members would be “secured.” “There were stirring speeches” and members left that first meeting “full of enthusiam,” planning to hold weekly meetings.
What We Do
We support the California and National Democratic Party’s values and principles, including access to opportunity for all through respectful and equal treatment regardless of race, gender identity, beliefs, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
