ADEM Candidates and Elections

Its election time in AD 15!!  The Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEM) is just around the corner.  We are calling all members of the El Cerrito Democratic Club to come out and support our members that are running to be delegates to represent you on the state level.  Why are ADEMS important?  The Delegates (there are only 3,000 Statewide) choose the leadership of the California Democratic Party; They help shape the party platform; and they determine not only what propositions the party endorses but candidates too!!  You can vote for up to 7 men and 7 women delegates to represent Assembly District 15.

It is that time of the year – you are either a club member – or not.  Our membership Vice-President, Champaign Brown, will be sending out emails and a few postcards to 2017 and 2018 members.  Please read her note carefully as it will let you know if we think you are a member – or need to rejoin.  That is right, as of June 1st, you either were a member or your membership lapsed.  If you want to participate in the endorsement forums in August, you will need to renew by midnight on Wednesday, July 11, 2018.  If you do not get any correspondence by the next general meeting, Tuesday June 26, then please contact us at, and we will be happy to look into your information.
