Our General Membership Meeting will be held on Saturday, September 17 in the Winn Room of the Coronado Library, 640 Orange Avenue, Coronado. Coffee and light snacks will be served beginning at 10:30 am, and our program begins promptly at 11:00.
Democratic Party-nominated and/or endorsed candidates for office (or, if unavailable, their senior aides) representing Coronado, will address the membership and be available to answer questions. We’ll also have some exciting opportunities to get involved in their campaigns for a Get Out the Vote (GOTV) drive.
Scheduled to appear are:
Toni Atkins, Assembly Speaker Emeritus and candidate for the 39th State Senate District
Todd Gloria, San Diego City Council Member and candidate for 78th State Assembly District
Kate Lyon, Deputy Campaign Manager will represent Congressman Scott Peters, who is running to maintain his seat in the 52nd Congressional District
Don’t miss this exciting meeting! Encourage your family, friends and neighbors to attend and get involved in this year’s campaign. While a Clinton victory in California is expected, we have a close race in the 52nd Congressional District. Our next President needs a Democratic Congress to move forward our Party’s progressive vision. Let’s make it happen!
The next meeting of the Coronado Democratic Club will be held on January 23, 2016. The meeting will feature a debate between Marty Block and Toni Atkins, Democratic candidates for the State Senate, 39th District, which includes Coronado. Marty Block is our incumbent State Senator and Toni Atkins is currently Speaker of the Assembly, but she will be termed-out in 2016.
The Club will conduct an Endorsement vote immediately after the debate. As per our Bylaws, in order to win our Club’s Endorsement, a candidate must attain a super-majority of 60% of the votes cast with a minimum of 30 affirmative votes. If a Club member cannot attend but would still like to participate in the Endorsement vote, please contact Mercy Mandelbaum at (619) 435-1911 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an Absentee ballot.
Also on the agenda will be our U.S. Congressional Representative, Scott Peters. He will review some of his recent accomplishments and share his plans for the next legislative session. There will be time for a few questions.
The meeting will be held on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 11:00 AM in the Winn Room at the Coronado Public Library. Refreshments will be served beginning at 10:30AM.
California Governor (for the Day) Toni Atkins made a proclamation in honor of Lambda Archives of San Diego.
Come celebrate with us and hear Speaker Atkins explain why she made this proclamation and the value of LGBT history. Then, make whatever donation is most comfortable for you. No advance tickets are required.
There will be plenty of options to follow Toni’s lead and show your support of Lambda Archives: become a member, “Adopt a Box,” help us buy a new printer, underwrite an oral history/video recording session, or make a contribution to our general operating fund. Pick whatever suits you.
Come celebrate this momentous event with us on SUNDAY, OCT 12. 4-6pm in Coronado.
If you can’t attend, you can make an on-line donation here.
