In case you haven’t heard there is a big election coming up in San Diego and Democrats across the State are rolling up their sleeves to pitch in.
The San Diego Mayor’s race is in a virtual dead heat and Democrat David Alvarez is up against a Republican who’s threatening to roll back all the recent Democratic gains in the city. That’s why the California Democratic Party’s Statewide Officers, Eric Bauman, Alex Rooker, Daraka Larimore-Hall, Hilary Crosby and CDP Executive Director Shawnda Westly are heading down to San Diego this weekend to hit the pavement and knock on some doors.
“It’s important for us to pitch in here and help our fellow Democrats. Alvarez is a true progressive with a real chance to win, especially if we all participate in the effort to get him elected. That’s why I’m joining our CDP officers and heading down to San Diego this weekend,” explained Shawnda.
San Diego was once a Republican strong hold but in recent years Democrats have made significant inroads.
As Shawnda explained, “David Alvarez is for raising the minimum wage, creating more affordable housing, and protecting the benefits that public workers have earned — and as mayor of one of California’s biggest cities, he can put those values into action for a lot of people and put a spotlight on the issues that matter.”
Making the trip down to San Diego for GOTV weekend isn’t something we all can do, but there is a way to help from home. We have an easy to use online phonebanking tool so Democrats across the state can pitch in and help. You can visit www.cadem.org/AlvarezCalls to access the online phone bank.
The CDP’s Chicano-Latino Caucus is dialing away and helping San Diego Mayoral candidate David Alvarez who’s in a very tight race. Learn why they are helping and how you can help too.
Nevada County is a hidden gem tucked away in the Sierras. Home to a slew of outdoor activity and beautiful landscapes, the county also has an up and coming art scene. The growing outdoor urban feel of the county has attracted many people to this beautiful destination. As Chair of the Nevada County Democratic Central Committee (DCC) Jim Firth said, “It’s an incredible place that needs to be seen.”
The Nevada County DCC has been active in the community for about 25 years now. Since that time they have seen plenty of ups and downs. Today the county is purple and volunteers are working on turning it into a blue county.
“We’ve made it a point to do a lot of community outreach. Every first Tuesday we have an education forum that’s open to the public, where we discuss everything from the Affordable Care Act to environmental issues. Those meetings attract a decent amount of people and some of those folks want get involved with the DCC,” explained Jim.
Beyond community outreach the Nevada County DCC also has a Candidate Support Committee that helps Democratic Candidates running for local, state or federal offices throughout the County. As Jim described, “We’re committed to helping our endorsed candidates get their names out there and meet members of the community. We do that through our Newsletter or through community outreach events like the first Tuesday education forum.”
The Nevada DCC also hosts a yearly fundraising dinner aptly named the “Rock to Rally the Vote” dinner to reflect the growing art and music scene in the area. Local bands will be playing at this year’s event and all are welcome. To learn more or if you would like to attend click here.
We’re happy to know that Nevada County Democrats are working hard to make change and we can’t wait to see what happens next.
