Steve Rivera is a long time member of the California Democratic Party and former Regional Director for our area, Region 20. At this month's meeting Steve explains the structure of the Democratic Party and in particular the local and State party organization.
Steve will cover Party basics, where he thinks there will be changes and how we can make it better.
From the national level on down changes are being demanded by regular Party members. Last year the Democratic National Convention Rules Committee agreed to change the rules regarding superdelegates. Just this last week San Diego County Democratic clubs proposed changing the Bylaws of the San Diego County Democratic Party to insure that clubs are consulted on rule changes that affect clubs and their members.
These are exciting times to be a Democrat and its important to understand what that really means. We need to better understand the makeup of our Party so we can work together to improve it. Across the country from local governments, to state houses to national offices the Democratic party has been losing ground to our opponents. Reversing that trend involves questioning the makeup of the party and how it functions.
There will also be a chance to meet new candidates who are gearing up for great things in 2018. Come along, bring a friend, and meet progressives from Point Loma, Ocean Beach and beyond!
