Democrats for Equality – Proposed Resolution for Top Two Candidates in General Elections (please review)

The Democrats for Equality Club proposed a resolution to make sure that there are two candidates in General Elections and that elections are not ‘decided’ in the Primary, as happened with the District 2 City Council race this year. Further, that Initiatives and Resolutions are only voted on in the General Elections when voter participation is higher. David Warmoth attended our July 27 Meeting to ask for our club’s endorsement. The resolutions passed unanimously. There are two versions one Resolution for the San Diego City Council and one Resolution for the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

Tell the San Diego City Council: Time to Raise the Minimum Wage

On Monday July 14, the San Diego Council will cast a vote that could greatly improve the lives of thousands of families in our region and stimulate growth in our local economy. They will formally hear Council President Todd Gloria’s proposal to raise the minimum wage and provide access to five earned sick days for working people in San Diego. This reasonable proposal resulted from meaningful input from diverse stakeholders, including organized labor and business. Even working full-time at the current minimum wage, it’s impossible to live in San Diego without public or private assistance (mostly at taxpayer expense). Yet special interests and their lobbyists are pushing to block this important measure. That’s why the City Council needs to hear from you! Please call the councilmembers (numbers below), click here to send a letter, and/or attend the City Council meeting on Monday, July 14, at 6:00 p.m. (RSVP here.) The hearing will be on the 12th floor of City Hall at 202 C St., San Diego 92101. Three-hour free parking with validation is available at …

Jun 16 – Council to Review Minimum Wage Proposal

Last week a committee of the San Diego City Council approved a plan backed by Council President Todd Gloria that would provide five earned sick days and increase the city’s minimum wage. This proposal would help hard-working San Diegans make ends meet, since no one working full-time should have to live in poverty. On Monday, the full City Council will consider it for the first time.
