  • ·

  • Now for a little more detail:

    Mark your calendar for our Social on June 25.

    This was e our third year in the Western Days Parade and we need pictures of the event. E-mail them to vcdemos12@gmail.com. This is a repeat, a repeat, a repeat.

    Duncan Hunter – HE NEEDS TO GO. Many people in our club have made concerted efforts to get Hunter out of office by protests in front of his office, marches, demanding his presence at town hall meetings. On May 6 there will be a meeting introducing many candidates that will be running against Hunter. Several of us will attend and report back to those who cannot. It is time for Democrats here in Valley Center, the 50th District, to work at electing a Democrat to the House of Representatives to represent us.

    Susan Dillmann is doing an incredible job on keeping us informed about Government actions, what the different bills are and who to call or write. Susan sends out emails every week and if you would like to be on her email list for this information, let me know and I will send it on to her. Contact me at: journeyon85@gmail.com or sign up for her blog at https://the50thblog.wordpress.com/

    We as a club have done an amazing job participating in the protest and resistance marches that are happening around the world. First it was the Woman’s March on January 21, we participated in the Town Hall that Hunter had in Ramona, Tax Day March, March for Science and the People’s Climate Change march. Marian Sedio, who is in charge of the environmental issues on our board, and Carolyn McGraw have been keeping us informed on where we can march and participate; kudos to both of them.
