We have a special event this month as we’re hosting Delaine Eastin who’s running for Governor of California. With the help of the San Diego County Democratic Party we’re holding the meeting at the International Association of Machinists Union Hall, 5150 Kearny Mesa Rd, San Diego, CA 92111 (map).
We’ll start a little earlier than usual for regular club business, followed by Delaine’s event at 7pm. Please RSVP to let us know you’re coming, and spread the word on what’s bound to be a fabulous evening.
Delaine is the former California State Superintendent of Public Instruction. She is the fourth woman to be elected to a statewide office, and is the first and is still the only woman to be elected Superintendent, a profession that is dominated by women. Delaine was elected Superintendent following eight years in the State Assembly and six years on the City Council in Union City. Delaine has run for office 14 times and has never lost an election.
Throughout her career, Delaine has been a leader who has never been afraid to stand up to bullies on behalf of what is right. She fought polluters and sponsored legislation that raised over $100 million for toxic cleanup. She took on Big Tobacco and passed propositions that taxed the tobacco industry to create ‘First 5 California’ and anti-smoking campaigns. And as part of the lawsuit against Proposition 187, Delaine successfully stopped California’s police, health care professionals and teachers from being used as de facto immigration agents.
Delaine has fought tirelessly for the children and people of California…and she has won. Now she is ready to take this fight into the Governor’s office to ensure that the people of this great state have high quality education; affordable healthcare for ALL; a safe and clean environment; affordable housing; and that we build an economy that works for everyone.
