Great Turnout for Sunday’s Meeting with Cindy Marten, Kevin Beiser, Scott Peters & Ed Harris

Scott Peters updated the club on his work in congress, trying to deal with unreasonable tea-party Republicans as well as reasonable GOP members. He answered members questions and praised club members for their efforts in bringing awareness to Democratic Party causes. Ed Harris announced his candidacy for District 2. Ed spoke to the club in February, 2013 about Lifeguards, Beaches and Politics. Cindy Marten gave a superb overview of her career to date, and how she intends to fill the role of Superintendent for the San Diego Unified School District. Everyone was impressed by her breadth of knowledge and clear articulation of complex issues, as well as her warmth and pragmatism. She explained that each school faces different challenges and by way of example recounted how she had worked to provide employee day care at one, and a healthcare center for children at another. Supported by the School District Board (unanimously), the unions, principals and a Mayor who understands educational issues well, Cindy will be a great Superintendent. She answered members questions at length, and …

2013 Membership Drive

The March 24, 2013 meeting of the Point Loma Democratic Club had 39 members in attendance and 18 guests for a total of 57 that heard the great presentation from Dianne Lane and Pam Page. Currently the club has 74 paid up memberships, so nearly 53 % of our members were in attendance. That is very good. Some of the larger clubs may have 200+ members with only 25 to 30 showing up at meetings. So be proud of yourselves PLDCians and keep on showing up and adding input to your club. Bring your friends and neighbors too, because it would be nice to have more members. In 2011 we had a record, 110 members. It is not too early to think about signing up for the June 22, 2013 Ocean Beach Street Fair Booth. Make a note of the date and keep it open. Manning the booth at the Street Fair is fun and an opportunity to meet many new people and sign up more members. You do not want to miss our next …
