Hey, Clairemont Democrats!

For our August 11 meeting, we are excited to welcome Congressman Scott Peters back for an update on what’s going on in Washington, D.C.

Also, we will be considering early 2016 club endorsements for Scott Peters’ re-election, and for Clairemont native Todd Gloria for his State Assembly bid.

Remember: to vote on club endorsements, you must be a member in good standing! If you haven’t already renewed your club membership, or would like to join and become a member, then please remember to bring your $20 dues – cash or checks. We are working on setting up the ability to pay dues online!

Our club meeting starts at 7:00pm at Boomerangs (4577 Clairemont Drive, San Diego, CA 92117). Remember to order food and/or drink if at all possible. The owners of Boomerang’s are great Democrats, and they deserve our business and support.

Clairemont Democratic Club Members Celebrate 60th Anniversary of Town Council

IMG_0012At this month’s Clairemont Town Council meeting, their Board members celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Town Council’s founding.

Several of our Clairemont Democratic Club members are also members of the Town Council, and attend their monthly meetings regularly to keep updated on issues in our community. Three of our club members also serve on the Town Council Board of Directors.

Our Democratic Congressman Scott Peters and our endorsed candidate for San Diego City Council (and club member) Carol Kim joined board members in the photo.

Congrats to the Clairemont Town Council for 60 years of community service! Here’s to another 60!


Upcoming Events: September 2014

Hey, Clairemont Democrats!

Wanted to keep you informed of these two upcoming events, hosted by Rhoda Quate:

First up, there’s a Clairemont fundraiser for Carol Kim on Tuesday, September 16 at 5:30pm. Minimum contribution is $100. We’d love to have you there in support of Carol even if you’re able to contribute a smaller amount.

With the minimum wage issue front-and-center on the minds of San Diegans, this election for Carol Kim is important!

For more information about the fundraiser for Carol Kim, please check out this flyer: Carol Kim Fundraiser Flyer 9-16-2014

scott-peters-finalFinally, there will be a house party for Congressman Scott Peters on Saturday, September 20 at 1:30pm. This is a perfect opportunity to turnout, invite your neighbors, and meet our Congressman.

Polls show Carol and Scott in close, margin-of-error elections against their Tea Party opponents, and they can’t win without a strong show of support from Clairemont.

If you cannot attend one of the events, please plan on attending the other. These are must-win races for our community!

2 Months Until Election Day!

10687482_10152363342906943_2914455637278851899_oWe have 2 months until Election Day, and absentee ballots drop in only 31 days.

Folks, now is the time to step up and volunteer to help elect our Democratic candidates up and down the ticket.

The two most important races this year are focused in Clairemont — Carol Kim for City Council, and Scott Peters for Congress.

Polls are showing Carol Kim and Scott Peters in margin-of-error races against Tea Party-backed candidates, and we can’t afford let them down when they need our help and support. Most voters don’t start paying attention to candidates and campaigns until after Labor Day and — well, it’s after Labor Day.

If we going to win these races, we have to get involved now!
