Next Club Meeting, Executive Board Vacancies, and Picnic with Progressives

Democrats for Equality,

We heard sad news today with the passing of Meldon Merrill. We send our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

The next club meeting will be on Thursday, August 17th at 6:30pm at Diversionary Theater (4545 Park Blvd., San Diego, CA 92116). Please take note that this is not our normal meeting location as there was a scheduling conflict.

At our meeting this month, we will be considering endorsements in the following races:

  • Assembly District 77
  • Assembly District 78 (Friendly Incumbent)
  • San Diego County District Attorney
  • San Diego County Assessor/Recorder/Clerk
  • San Diego County Board of Supervisors District 4, and
  • Chula Vista City Council District 2

Last month, we voted to amend the bylaws to add two additional at-large board member positions. Pursuant to the bylaws I am declaring a vacancy in these two positions and we will execute the club’s process to fill those vacancies. We will appoint a nominating committee and elect members to the committee to convene a search for candidates. At this point I will also be opening the floor to nominations.

Anyone interested in serving on the board please email me at

On Sunday, September 10th at 1:00pm we will be co-hosting “Picnic with Progressives” in partnership with our friends at the San Diego Progressive Democratic Club.

I hope to see you at our next club meeting and at the picnic!


In Solidarity,

Will Rodriguez-Kennedy
