October 21 – Endorsements

New Meeting Start Time

We are moving the meeting time to start promptly at 6:30 PM.
Social time will be from 6:00PM to 6:30PM.

Because our agenda is completely full, we will not be able to give candidates (not on the agenda) time at the beginning of the meeting, as we usually do, to address our members but we may have time at the end of the meeting. We encourage candidates to come to the Social Time so that they may talk directly to club members before the meeting starts.

Chaired by Yvonne Elkin, Endorsement Committee Chair

We will attempt to endorse in the following races:

  • San Diego City Council District 1 – Aaron Brennan, Joe LaCava, Will Moore, Harid Puentes, Louis Rodolico, James P Rudolph (newly announced)
  • San Diego Community College Board District D (Friendly Incumbent): Mary Graham
  • San Diego City Council District 7 – Raul Campillo, Wendy Wheatcroft

The following candidates did not respond or return their questionnaires, so will not be considered for endorsement:

  • Monty McIntyre – City Council D7
  • Sharon Larios – City Council D7
  • Kevin Beiser – City Council D7

Taking a short break from politics, the Woman’s Club will join the Moxie Theatre for HANDBAGGED on Friday November 8th.

It was a hit in London’s West End, and won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. It crossed the ocean and received rave reviews in DC and NYC. Now it’s making its West Coast Premiere in San Diego. Moira Buffini (playwright and screenwriter of hit HULU series Harlots) has crafted an extraordinary theatrical experience with her new play Handbagged, playing Oct 19 – Nov 17 at MOXIE Theatre.

Nobody knows what happened behind palace doors during the eleven years of weekly meetings between Queen Elizabeth II and the U.K.’s first female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher (a.k.a The Iron Lady.) In this incredible premiere, four of San Diego’s most sought after performers take the stage as the two British icons, as the audience is taken on a wild ride from 1979-1990 with a cast of characters that includes everyone from palace footmen to Ronald and Nancy Regan.

Please let Moxie staff member Jessamyn know if you have any questions.



We meet at Elijah’s Restaurant, 7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, San Diego, CA 92111
