Our Summer Party is on Sunday August 28 starting at 3:30PM and we’re pleased to welcome Assemblymember Chris Ward!

We ask that all members and guests are vaccinated, and that CDC and local county COVID-19 guidelines are followed.

This year in the interests of health safety we are having the event catered. Please do not bring a dish, but instead we ask for a minimum donation of $20 to cover the delicious food from ¡Salud!

The Party is on Sunday August 28, starting at 3:30PM at Angela and John’s house – address supplied with entry donation.

The club will furnish Carne Asada and Veggie tacos, beans, Mexican rice, guacamole, onions, cilantro, Cotija cheese, limes, red garlic, salsa, salsa verde, tortillas, quesadilla and mini tortillas, plus two drink tickets per person for wine or beer.

Come enjoy the holidays with your fellow Dems, meet your elected officials including Assemblymember Chris Ward, and endorse local candidates for the General election. Click here.

Endorsed Candidates

We’re delighted to be joined at the Summer Party by Barbara Bry, our endorsed candidate for San Diego County Assessor-Recorder-Clerk.

Special Guests

We’re also over the moon to welcome long time club member Vera Plain.


The club will consider endorsements for:

  • San Diego County Board of Supervisors District 5 – Dr Tiffany Boyd-Hodgson
  • San Diego Unified District C — Dr Cody Peterson
  • San Diego Superior Court Seat 35 — Rebecca Kanter

We’ll follow our Endorsement Forum Guidelines for considerations with only one Democratic candidate (PDF).

GO Team

In the recent primary election, about 500 members of the San Diego County Grassroots Organizing Team provided crucial support to get Democratic candidates past the finish line.

We know that can make the difference in close races – trusted local volunteers who distribute our slate of endorsements and help ensure that our voters turn out.

If you’re not already a GO Team member, this is the perfect time to join! You can register now for an upcoming orientation on Zoom that will give you all the information and tools you need.

Please go to to to check out and sign up for one of those sessions, which are running now through mid-September. (If you’re already on the GO Team, keep an eye out for details on your local “kickoff” event for the general election before ballots are mailed in October.)

Personal, positive, grassroots action is key to Democratic success – especially in this turbulent midterm year. Election after election, our GO Team gets results. To be part of this community of dedicated organizers, please sign up for training today!

We’re pleased that Dina Feldman-Scarr will speak to us about GO Team at the Summer Party.
