After the election there’s a lot for Democrats to consider on both the local and national level. We’re delighted to have two of our club members lead our discussion:
- Gregg Robinson will discuss the results from a sociologist’s point of view
- Cynara Velazquez will provide analysis of the local races
If he can make it we’ll also be joined by Doug Porter, of the San Diego Free Press.
Cynara Velazquez works for EDF Renewable Energy as a Reporting Data Architect and Report Designer. She graduated from UC Santa Cruz, with a B.S., Information Technology. She also campaigned for the recent, successful (and after these election results, much appreciated) Proposition 64 ballot measure.
Gregg Robinson is a professor of sociology at Grossmont College in San Diego, California. He received his Ph.D. from UCSD, and has taught at the University of Maryland as well as Austin State University. His past research has focused on teachers in high poverty schools as well as on the foreclosure crisis and the response to it among the white working class. More recently he has conducted a poll of San Diego County white working class voters’ attitudes toward Donald Trump. He currently serves as the president of the County Board of Education as well as Vice-President of the American Federation of Teachers 1931.
