This month, we will review where things stand with Clairemont as it relates to redistricting at the local, state, and federal level.

Finally, if you’re new to our club, welcome home!​​​​​​​


Action Needed: Clairemont Redistricting!

Hi Clairemont Democrats!

There are a number of Clairemont residents sounding the alarm on redistricting.

At the last meeting of the City of San Diego’s Independent Redistricting Commission, they ended with a map that draws Clairemont into 4 DISTRICTS (image above)! This proposed map would split us — unlike any other community in the city — into portions of Council Districts 1, 2, 6, and 7.

This is abysmal, and we need to organize and start providing feedback to the Independent Redistricting Commission, including at their next commission meeting this Thursday, October 28th at 5:30pmInformation for their next meeting can be found here.

There is an alternate proposal (image below) supported by the Clairemont Town Council and many members of the Clairemont community below, which would unite our community in a single council district.

If you support the alternate plan as shown above, follow the directions below to show your support for keeping our community together!  And ask other Clairemonters who care about this community to do the same.

  • Step 1: Click on San Diego Redistricting Public Comment Portal
  • Step 2: Once you’re in the portal, click the green button “A Districting Plan”
  • Step 3: Scroll down to Submission Form and click District Plan
  • Step 4: Copy the URL link into the box labeled Districtr Plan:
    https://districtr.org/plan/68527?portal
  • Step 5: After the link has been pasted, fill out the rest of the form (please include your comments) and then click submit.

Thank you, and let’s make some noise on redistricting and unify our community!

Next Club Meeting: Tuesday, Sept. 14th (Election Day!)

Hi, Clairemont Democrats!

Join us for our next club meeting on Tuesday, September 14th at 7:00pm — this will be an all-virtual club meeting. As much as we would like to try more hybrid-type meetings, the alarming rise in the Delta variant COVID cases are worrisome.

Register for our virtual September meeting here!

Since our previous meeting was pre-emptied by an all-hands-on-deck meeting of our local Democratic Party, we will welcome Janessa Goldbeck to present a resolution to ban ‘ghost guns’ — unregistered, unregulated, untraceable firearms that can be 3D-printed and manufactured. Clairemont Democratic Club will take a position on the resolution being presented. Here is the text of the resolution.

The recall election is this same night, so we will also check out election returns as they come in for the remainder of the evening.

Remember to VOTE NO before Tuesday, September 14th!

Finally, if you’re new to our club, welcome home!​​​​​​​


Next Club Meeting: Tuesday, August 10

Hi Clairemont Democrats,

Join us for our next club meeting on Tuesday, August 10th at 7:00pm — this will be an all-virtual club meeting. As much as we would like to try more hybrid-type meetings, the alarming rise in the Delta variant COVID cases are worrisome.

Register for our virtual August meeting here!

We will welcome our San Diego County Democratic Party Chair Will Rodriguez-Kennedy as a guest speaker to speak about the fast-approaching recall election.

Be sure to double check your voter registration, and make sure everything is up-to-date. Absentee ballots for the recall election will be mailed out the week of August 16th — just 3 weeks away!

The recall election is Tuesday, September 14th, and remember to vote NO!

Also, we will welcome Janessa Goldbeck to present a resolution to ban ‘ghost guns’ — unregistered, unregulated, untraceable firearms that can be 3D-printed and manufactured. Clairemont Democratic Club will take a position on the resolution being presented. Here is the text of the resolution.

Finally, if you’re new to our club, welcome home!​​​​​​​


Recall Election: Vote NO September 14th!

Hi Clairemont Democrats!

It was announced that the Republican-backed effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has been scheduled for Tuesday, September 14th — coincidentally, this is the same night as our regularly-scheduled club meeting in September which means we might spend the evening watching the election returns roll in.

A couple of months ago, our club members voted to oppose this dumb AF recall election, and the California Democratic Party is opposed as well.

The timing of the election means that absentee ballots could drop as early as mid-August — literally, next month! As volunteer opportunities are announced to oppose the recall, we’ll let you know when and where they are.

Finally, we will be having a club meeting on Tuesday, July 13th at 7:00pm — we are working on logistics this weekend to determine if it will be a hybrid meeting or a virtual-only meeting.

For now, here’s the Zoom registration link!

Finally, if you’re new to our club, welcome home!​​​​​​​


Next Club Meeting: Tuesday, June 8

Hi, Clairemont Democrats!

Join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, June 8th @ 7:00pm for our next Clairemont Democratic Club meeting!

We will hear a presentation on Medicare for All from local Democratic activists Maz Hadaegh and Emily Olanoff. Thank you to club member Morey Rahimi for helping to organize this month’s presentation.

Please register for our next meeting here.

Also, thank you to our club members for standing strong in opposition to the attempted recall of our own City Council President Dr. Jen Campbell.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported this week that recall enthusiasts failed to submit enough signatures falling thousands short of the threshold needed, and the U-T’s Editorial Board opined that the effort was wrong from the start.

Our San Diego County Democratic Party also opposed the recall attempt, as did this club.

Now’s the time to move forward and shift our collective focus to flipping District 6 blue in 2022!

Finally, if you’re new to our club, welcome home!​​​​​​​
