Contra Costa Times Political Editor Lisa Vorderbrueggen will analyze and recap the June California primary election as the Lamorinda Democratic Club’s featured speaker at our June 10, 2010 meeting.
The club will meet at the Orinda Community Church, 10 Irwin Way. The social hour begins at 6:30 p.m., with the club’s business meeting to follow at 7:15 p.m, and the speaker program to begin at 8 p.m.
Vorderbrueggen will offer her expert perspective on the June primary elections. As the political editor of the Contra Costa Times, she is one of the few people who can offer informed and comprehensive analysis of the election results from the statewide primaries down to the important county elections that will be decided just two days before her June 10 appearance at our club meeting.

She also worked as reporter, editor, and columnist for the Nevada Appeal, a Carson City, Nev., daily. Vorderbrueggen’s work has been recognized by the California Newspaper Publishers Association, Nevada Press Association and the East Bay Press Club. She earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism in 1989 at the University of Nevada, Reno.
