Come hear from former State Superintendent Delaine Eastin about why she is running to be the next Chair of the CaliforniaDemocratic Party.

Delaine wants to create an inclusive, growing, inspiring, transparent California Democratic Party that will win back the congressional seats we lost in November, and train and support Democrats up and down the ballot, and all over the state.

Guest Speaker: Barbara Bry

Barbara Bry

Former District 1 San Diego City Councilmember Barbara Bry will address us as spokesperson for the Recall Jen Campbell campaign

To quote Barabra:
It’s a new day in San Diego, and it’s time for the voices of the people to be heard.
Do not let this chance go by. Get involved now. Protect the city — and your neighborhood — from entrenched, powerful, special interests.

Ms. Bry, in an interview with KUSI last week announcing that she would be part of the recall effort, said the campaign’s leaders planned to file notice of intent in mid-January.

That means we could be looking at an election at the end of next year, if the recall campaign hits all of its marks. The Voice of San Diego has more information on this recall.
