Election of EDC Delegates to CA State Pre-Endorsement Meeting

The EDC has been invited to send 7 representatives to participate in the CA State Democratic Endorsement of Candidates for the 50th Congressional District, the 75th Assembly District and the 38th State Senate District. We elected our delegates at our October membership meeting, and they are:

Men:
Wayne Lu
Blaise Jackson
Gary Graves
Richard Powers
 
Women:
Shelley Spisak
Paula Huntington
Irene Galenes

Voting for the endorsements occurs at what they call the Pre-Endorsement Meeting. It is called the Pre-Endorsement Meeting because the actual endorsement occurs at the CA State Convention in February 2018, but the State party needs to know ahead of time who the local Democrats support. About 98% of the time the State Party follows the recommendation of the local Democrats. Besides representatives from the various clubs in the area, members of the CA State Central Committee who live in the area will also be voting. 

To be an EDC representative, you must have been a member of EDC as of July 1st 2017 and a registered Democrat. Delegates can vote for whoever they think deserves the endorsement. They may also take into consideration whoever the EDC endorses (the EDC will vote on endorsements at our January 13th meeting).  They would like the 7 representative to be evenly split between male and female. If you have any questions, feel free to email or call Rick Bova (budb@cox.net 760-752-4656).

The Pre-Endorsement Meeting will occur on January 27th, 2018 from 10am-2pm in San Juan Capistrano. If they can't attend, they can vote by mail, email, or fax. They will be voting for endorsements in the following races:  State Assembly Districts 73, 74, 75 and 76; State Senate Districts 36 and 38; and federal Congressional Districts 45, 48, 49 and 50. But delegates will only get to vote in the districts in which they live. All the candidates will be given a chance to speak, so attending the meeting will give d elegatesa chance to hear the candidates one last time. There may also be newly announced candidates at the meeting. 

Here is the current list of candidates for each of the races. There may be more or less by January.
50th Congressional District
 Pierre Beauregard, Josh Butner, Ammar Campa-Najjar, Glenn Jensen, and Patrick Malloy
75th Assembly District
