Members of the Lamorinda Democratic Club will be seeking to win election as delegates to the 2011 and 2012 California Democratic Party Conventions during Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEM) on Saturday, January 8. And our members need your help to win and help to represent us with the California Democratic Party.

These ADEM elections are the vehicle by which the California Democratic Party proceeds with its reorganization, which occurs biennially to determine the members of the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC). These Delegates will meet for the first time at the California Democratic Party State Convention held April 29-May 1, 2011 in Sacramento. 

Members of the Lamorinda Democratic Club are running in Assembly District 14 (Nancy Skinner), Assembly District 15 (Joan Buchanan), and Assembly District 11 (Susan Bonilla). Each district will elect six men and six women to represent them. 

Most of our members live in Assembly District 14, which includes much of Berkeley, El Cerrito, and the Lamorinda area.  Other groups in the geographic areas of the district are running slates of delegates, and that means Lamorinda may end up with less representation than we should have unless we make an extra effort to go to Berkeley and vote!

The AD 14 election will be held on Saturday, January 8, at 1 p.m. on the Ed Roberts Campus at 3075 Adeline St. in Berkeley. Six of our Lamorinda Democratic Club members are seeking those positions in AD 14 and they need your help and votes. (We also have one club member running in AD 11 and three running in AD 15.)

I strongly encourage you and all of our Lamorinda Democratic Club members to take some time and head over to Berkeley (or Concord or San Ramon, depending on the Assembly District in which you live) and vote for our club members who are seeking election to the Democratic State Central Committee. The ADEM meeting information for the districts in which our members live is included below.

The doors will open at the time indicated and close two hours later. You can vote immediately or wait for the delegate presentations to follow after the doors close. There is a $5 charge to defray meeting costs. However, hardship waiver requests will be honored.
