Join us by participating in the biggest and most exciting Lamorinda event of the year— The Lafayette Art and Wine Festival! Last year’s event attracted about 80,000 visitors over two days! Our booth draws hundreds of voters who stop by to register to vote, talk about politics, sign-up as new members and precinct organizers, and to discover how they can get involved, and do their part to ensure Democratic victories in 2020. Please note that our location has changed again this year. We will be at Booth # 716, across from Blue Mercury/Chicos, on the south or Safeway side of Mt. Diablo Blvd.
Our presence at this event is critical in attracting new members, recruiting volunteers, and publicizing our club and mission. Please stop by the Lamorinda Democratic Club Booth or volunteer to help us set up, represent local Dems and register voters by contacting EVENTS@LDclub.org
This year’s Walnut Creek Women’s March enjoyed its third year of enthusiastic turnout. Thousands of energetic friends, families, and marchers gathered to advocate, organize, protest, and find common ground. Along with our other Democratic club friends, the Lamorinda Democratic Club was proud to sponsor The Contra Costa Democratic Clubs Booth.
Just for fun, we posed the question, “If the next general election was tomorrow, who would you choose to be our next president?” Most booth visitors jumped at the chance to weigh in, though many anguished over trying to limit their decision to only one candidate. We observed a lot of careful consideration and an almost universal sentiment that, “We need someone who will WIN!”
Some participants also offered President/Veep suggestions: “Biden/Harris,” Harris/O’Rourke,” and “Biden/O’Rourke” were among the most popular. The category “Other,” was diverse and included Eric Swalwell, Sherrod Brown, Stacey Abrams, Adam Schiff, Michael Bloomberg, Mitch Landrieu, and even Oprah!
Needless to say, the field, to date, is wide open, and Democrats are excited by all of their potential options. In the months ahead, we hope to establish an ongoing interactive poll, so we can take the real-time pulse of our community.
