Clairemont Democratic Club

America's Finest Democrats. In the Heart of San Diego!


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!​​​​​​​

First Club Meeting of 2021! Join us on Tuesday, Jan. 12!

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

We are looking forward to ending 2020, and want to wish all of you a very safe and celebratory Happy New Year!

Our first club meeting of 2021 will be held on Tuesday, January 12th at 7:00pm via Zoom, and we are excited to welcome our County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher as a guest speaker. Supervisor Fletcher will provide a legislative update and address our region’s ongoing fight to battle COVID-19.

Also, we want to give a shout out to our club’s past president Stephen Groce who was elected to the FBI Citizens Academy Board of Directors. Congratulations Steph!

Let’s all move forward with the hope and optimism that 2021 and a fresh start can bring to all of us!


Clairemont Dems Holiday Hangout: Tuesday, December 8

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday last week — and now that we are getting into December, we’re about ready to wrap up this year!

Join us next Tuesday, December 8th at 7:00pm for a Clairemont Dems Holiday Hangout on Zoom.

No formal agenda, although our newly-elected school board member Sabrina Bazzo would like to stop by and speak with us. Hopefully, I’ll figure out how to best play copyright free holiday tunes in the background. Absent a traditional holiday party, this is the best we can do, but we’ll make the best of it!

Please register at this Zoom link

Next month, we’ll hear from Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, likely about the county’s up-to-date status in battling COVID-19, as well as legislative priorities now that Democrats have flipped the majority on the Board of Supervisors.

Unfortunately with coronavirus cases continuing to rise throughout the holidays, please be safe and take care of the people around you! We’ll get through this together.

See y’all next Tuesday!
