Lamorinda Democratic Club Members and Friends,
The LDC Board of Directors has decided to cancel our Thursday General Meeting, on March 12th as well as our Coffee Club meetings throughout March.
In light of today’s news of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Contra Costa County, every community organization is or will be wrestling with decisions over whether to carry on with scheduled meetings and events.
We deliberated carefully.
We had already planned to change the way we serve drinks and provide food. But out of an abundance of caution, we decided to take the advice from experts to “cancel or postpone nonessential gatherings.” We felt it was important to honor our civic responsibility to help protect the most vulnerable members of the community.
A huge “thank you” to Tom Tarantino, who was all set to present our March program: The Political Power Of Twitter. Tom is currently Senior Public Policy Manager at Twitter, where he leads Twitter’s global crisis response program, is responsible for U.S. state and city government relations at Twitter, and manages the Political Action Committee (#PAC). We will work with Tom to try to reschedule or explore other avenues to provide his presentation.
Lamorinda Democratic Club President
