Hey, Clairemont Democrats!
For our November 10 meeting, our guest speaker will be Chris Murphy, Executive Director and Co-Founder of CARR (Consumer Advocates for Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly- RCFE). Chris worked with Speaker Toni Atkins to pass a bill be sure these facilities meet high standards of service and care to the elderly and won the 2014 Free Speech and Open Government Award in California. We either have family members, friends or ourselves who will be needing these facilities.
Club meeting will start at 7:00pm at Boomerangs (4577 Clairemont Drive, San Diego, CA 92117), however feel free to stop by earlier for food, drink, and conversation with your fellow Clairemont Democrats.
Club Endorsement Information
Our Democratic Club has been asked by many candidates for endorsements for their 2016 races. As you know, last summer we endorsed two outstanding people who are not opposed by any Dem candidates: Scott Peters, our incumbent Congressman for the 52nd Congressional District, and Todd Gloria, candidate for the CA 78th Assembly District.
According to our bylaws, only members in good standing are allowed to vote. The definition of members in good standing is that they have their dues paid up to date. Our dues are collected each January for the year. Our voting on endorsements in contested races will occur at our January meeting. Our club must have a 70% majority to endorse a candidate in a Democratic contested race. We also have the option of voting not to endorse any candidate for a particular race.
Why are we doing this at the January 12, 2016, meeting? Because the California Democratic Party has decided that the Democratic Party’s district delegates will be voting on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, on the endorsements for the state and local races. We would like our delegates from our Clairemont Democratic Club to know the wishes of their fellow club members.
Our club does not hold a December meeting due to the busy lives of our members preparing for the holidays.
