Our Club is busy on all fronts as we head towards the Presidential Election on November 8th. We held our Candidates Luncheon and Garden Party on September 17th, a successful affair with Congresswoman Julia Brownley, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin, Supervisorial candidate Carla Castilla, and City Council candidate Jameson Lingl. Also participating was out-going supervisor Kathy Long. We raised a lot of money for the candidates to keep their campaigns in high gear.
We are also staffing our Democratic booth at the Farmers Market every Saturday to register voters and provide them information on the candidates and issues. Our members are phone banking and canvassing in support of Hillary and all of the candidates at our Garden Party. We participated in the Labor Day picnic and in the Kennedy Legacy Dinner.
Soon we will be calling on our overworked members to hang voting slates on doorknobs throughout Camarillo. Thousands of door hangers will be distributed at our next meeting on October 6th along with specially prepared walking lists provided courtesy of Zero Week Solutions. And finally, if that wasn't enough, we will be running two polling places on Election Day ... at our usual locations at Camarillo School and at the United Methodist Church. Our polling place workers are busy taking training and otherwise getting ready for the job to be done on November 8th.
There's a lot on our plates. But, after all, this is what our mission is all about ... to get Democratic candidates into office to fulfill our progressive agenda. And this is the time when the rubber hits the road. We are so close to success ... a blue sweep across all down-ballot races in our area ... and the first female President in our nation's history. Let's make it happen!
