Dem Club of Carlsbad-Oceanside meets
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Carlsbad Woman's Club
3320 Monroe St
At 11 a.m., we'll enjoy a celebratory cake, orange juice, champagne, and sparkling cider. 2008 was a good year for Democrats; and local clubs like DEMCCO played a significant role in that success.
As you probably know, San Diego County has turned blue, which I wasn't sure I'd see in my lifetime. This is mostly due to the efforts of our County Democratic Party under Jess Durfee (recently elected to the DNC board) and the 40 local clubs like DEMCCO. Nearly 54% of the county voted for Obama, the first Democratic presidential choice since FDR. Pretty amazing. A far cry from when I started volunteering 40 years ago. The cities of Chula Vista, Del Mar, Encinitas, Imperial Beach, La Mesa, Lemon Grove and San Diego are now blue as far as voter registration. Which one is next? Carlsbad?
