December 11 Holiday Party Includes Club Business

At the November 27 Club Meeting, members decided to conduct business at the December 11 Holiday Party. Two items will be considered.

  1. The club will take action to elect our representation to the Contra Costa Central Committee. We have two individuals interested in representing the club as Representative and Alternate. If others are interested in these two positions, they should let the club President Janet Abelson know (ecdc.pres@gmail.com) and attend the Holiday Party. Business will start around 7:30PM.
  2. The club will take action on endorsement of California Democratic Assembly District Delegates (ADEM). These positions are elected in January 2019 to represent us at the State Democratic Party conventions and executive board meetings. Seven (7) women and seven (7) men are elected. People interested in getting the ECDC endorsement should arrive at the Holiday Party ready to canvass the room for endorsement votes.

See you at the Holiday Party, Tuesday December 11 from 7Pm to 9PM at 7 Pomona Ave.

Volunteers Valued at ECDC

In 2006 and 2008 I organized the club’s campaign walks as a volunteer.  That is how I began to participate in the El Cerrito Democratic Club.  It was a discreet task with a defined goal – get the club’s endorsements to the residents of El Cerrito.  It was a way to help the club function and achieve its mission.  The club does not walk endorsements every year, just even years, however, we have other activities that do occur every year and your help would be appreciated.  Since this is an election year, with a few more activities than non-campaign years, we have even more opportunities for you to help!  Here is a list of six (6) volunteer opportunities in 2018:

  • Organize endorsement walks in May
  • Register voters at Loving Day in June
  • Staff our booth on the 4th of July
  • Assist at the endorsement forum on Saturday the 25th of August
  • Organize endorsement walks in September
  • Set-up and staff the Annual Dinner in October

Also, we would appreciate a helper to set up the monthly meetings and clean up at the end.  If you are interested in any of these tasks, please see President Janet Abelson or me at one of the next meetings or email Janet at ECDC.Pres@gmail.com.

On behalf of the Board, I thank everyone who plans to volunteer,
