It is our shared responsibility to ensure that people are informed, educated, and not mystified by stage craft, economic bribery or the feeling of helplessness. We have so many exciting things in store for our Clairemont Democratic Club members. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you at one (but hopefully all) of our meetings and events.


Club Meeting: February 11

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

Join us for our next club meeting next Tuesday, February 11th at 7:00pm inside Elijah’s Restaurant (7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego 92111).

We welcome our very own District 2 City Councilmember Dr. Jen Campbell as our guest speaker. Last week, Councilmember Campbell provided her first State of the District and for those were unable to attend the event, we’re sure she’ll give us a City Hall update and offer some thoughts on her first full-year as a city councilmember.

Also, with election day coming up soon, we’ll hear from those candidates running for the County Democratic Central Committee in Assembly Districts 77 and 78. There are six candidates who are elected per Assembly District to the Central Committee, which serves as the governing body for the San Diego County Democratic Party.

If you haven’t renewed for 2020, it’s time to renew your membership!

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

Join us for our next club meeting next Tuesday, January 14th at 7:00pm inside Elijah’s Restaurant (7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego 92111).

At November’s club meeting we heard speakers on the YES and NO side of the proposed Newland Sierra project in North County that will be on the March 3rd primary ballot — known as Measure B. We will be voting to take a position on this at Tuesday’s meeting. Also, we’ll hear an update on SB 636 (California Disclose Act) and may consider taking a position on that.

Finally, we are in 2020 — can you believe it?

Now that’s January, it’s time to renew your membership!

Club Meeting: October 8

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

Join us for our next club meeting next Tuesday, October 8th at 7:00pm inside Elijah’s Restaurant (7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego 92111).

Assemblymember Brian Maienschein will be our guest speaker. Earlier this year, our party welcomed him with open arms as he re-registered and became a new member of our Democratic Party. Brian Maienschein has been an influential legislator in Sacramento, providing key votes on housing, homelessness, and animal welfare legislation.

Clairemont, of course, is split between Assembly Districts 77 and 78. Most of Clairemont is represented by Brian Maienschein in Assembly District 77. Todd Gloria represents the Bay Park neighborhood in Assembly District 78.

Finally, last weekend our executive board met to discuss and plan out the rest of the year for our club. We’ve got some exciting things coming your way!

Club Meeting: September 10

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

Join us for our next club meeting next Tuesday, September 10th at 7:00pm inside Elijah’s Restaurant (7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego 92111).

As noticed at our last meeting, we will be considering a couple more 2020 endorsements, which include:

  • San Diego City Attorney
  • County Board of Education, District 1
  • San Diego Unified, District A

Also, the biggest political news this week affects Clairemont in a small way. Congresswoman Susan Davis announced that she is not running for re-election. Although Clairemont is represented by our awesome Congressman Scott Peters, prior to 2012, part of our community was represented by Susan Davis.

Her leadership and contributions to legislation in support of our veterans, our military servicemembers, our environment, our public education, and a host of other issues. We want to thank Congresswoman Davis for her courage and leadership, and her past representation of our community in Congress.

Here is the statement from Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Susan Davis’s retirement:

“Congresswoman Susan Davis is a spectacular Member of Congress and a significant leader in our country. As a Senior Member of the Armed Services Committee and of the Education and Labor Committee, she is a Chairwoman who deeply understands that America’s strength is measured not only in military might, but also in the health, education and well-being of the American people. Her patriotic, persistent leadership on the Committee on House Administration to ensure clean, fair elections has helped protect the sacred right of all Americans to have their voices heard at the ballot box and in our democracy.

“Chairwoman Davis came to the Congress committed to fighting for America’s children. Her two decades in Congress have made a significant difference for countless families in San Diego, the state of California and the country. Her leadership will be soundly missed in the United States Congress. All her colleagues in the Congress look forward to continuing to benefit from her leadership for the next year and a half, and her legacy for years to come.

“We thank her husband Steven and her family for sharing Congresswoman Davis with the Congress and the country, and wish them the best in all their future endeavors.”

And we’ll close with the statement from Congressman Scott Peters:

“Congratulations to my friend and colleague Susan Davis on her retirement from the United States House of Representatives. Her service in Congress over nearly two decades has made San Diego and our country better. She has been a fierce advocate for our military families and service members and championed expanding education and opportunities for Americans. As the senior member of our delegation, Susan was a model of exemplary service for all of us.

“I’m sad to hear this news, but I’m glad to hear Susan will remain active and continue her service to San Diego here at home—where she has made so much of a difference already. I wish Susan, Steve, and their entire family the best as they embark on this next chapter.”

Club Meeting: July 9

Hello, Clairemont Democrats!

Join us for our next club meeting on Tuesday, July 9th at 7:00pm inside Elijah’s Restaurant (7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego 92111).

Last month we heard a presentation from Jay Jayakumar about the draft of the Green New Deal. This month we will formally take a vote to endorse a resolution in support. Check out the draft resolution here, and take a look at the presentation on PowerPoint here.

Also, Sarah Walsh from Sullivan Solar Power will speak and present on solar energy, battery storage, and some of the upcoming changes in energy policy and utility rates.

Finally, due to candidate scheduling we will push our endorsement recommendation for San Diego City Attorney to our club meeting in August.
