Democrats for Equality,
We are excited to host a virtual fundraiser for Marni von Wilpert in a couple weeks on Friday, August 28th at 5:30pm.
Special guests include our LGBTQ City Councilmembers Chris Ward and Dr. Jen Campbell, and retired State Senator Christine Kehoe.
We want to invite all of our club members to join as we help Marni ensure that she’s taken care of. She is facing an onslaught of entrenched conservative and Republican interests who are pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars against her to prevent Council District 5 from flipping.
Last year, Council District 5 officially flipped blue in voter registration, and with our endorsed candidate Raul Campillo a sure-fire frontrunner in his race to flip Council District 7, all the attention is beginning to focus on this race in District 5.
Lest we forget — if Marni wins in November, it’s possible our San Diego City Council will have 8 Democrats to a single, lone Republican.
I love you all,
Ryan Trabuco (he/him/his)
