Club Meeting Thursday & #HillcrestStrong

Democrats for Equality,

Our February meeting will be this Thursday (Feb 21) at 7:00pm at the Joyce Beers Community Center in Hillcrest. Address is 3900 Vermont Street.

Other than officer elections, we will be discussing and voting on a couple bylaw proposals to diversify the club’s incoming executive board. Among the changes to be discussed, include:

  • Eliminating gender-specific language throughout the bylaws,
  • Re-naming and re-organizing the Treasurer position to Controller,
  • Creating the officer position of Sergeant-at-Arms, and
  • Elevating the club’s Associate Members to the county party into board-level Regional Director positions.

If the bylaw changes pass at our next meeting, we will also move ahead and have an election for Sergeant-at-Arms.

A full review of these proposed changes can be found here.

Also, Club President (and party chair) Will Rodriguez-Kennedy will offer his vision and goals for our party moving into the 2020 elections.

Last week, Will was featured in a San Diego Union-Tribune article regarding his election as party chair.

Finally, another event happening this week is the #HillcrestStrong Town Hall Meeting on Wednesday (Feb 20), from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

We are all aware of the rash of crime that has afflicted some of our neighborhoods in recent weeks. We will not tolerate hate crime in our communities. If you are interested in attending, please check the information on the flyer below.

See you Thursday at our club meeting — and bring a friend!

In Solidarity,
