December 2020

Thank you to all who attended “Here Comes the Sun,” our last general monthly meeting of 2020 via ZOOM. Following the November election, it was certainly a cause for celebration and an opportunity to recognize the dedication of all the Lamorinda Democratic Club members and friends who donated their time, energy and enthusiasm to Getting Out The Vote, and supporting Democratic candidates at the local, county, state, and federal level.

We also celebrated the LDC’s Precinct Organizing Project. Together, dozens of Precinct Organizers from Lamorinda, Walnut Creek, Danville, Alamo, Concord, Pleasant Hill and Martinez reached over 20,000 Democratic voters and saw Democratic voter turnout in their precincts reach between 75% and 91%!

We heard our newly-elected, and newly-reelected representatives describe their election take-aways, legislative updates, and priorities for the new year. Thank you Congressman Mark DeSaulnier, Assembly Member Rebecca Bauer Kahan, Walnut Creek Mayor-Elect Kevin Wilk, Orinda City Council Member Inga Miller, and Moraga City Council Member-Elect David Stromberg.

Congratulations to all of the Democrats who won their elections, and also to those who did not win this time, but had the courage to throw their hat in the ring — hoping to serve their communities and make a positive difference to benefit the common good.

Many thanks also, to the panelists, speakers, and experts, who participated in person or virtually in our monthly meetings or special events this year. Your presentations educated, engaged, entertained, and connected us. (You are individually named in the December Monthly E-Update to LDC Members and Friends.)

There is no December general monthly meeting although the Lamorinda Democratic Club Board will be meeting to discuss plans for the year ahead.

Our efforts to Engage, Educate, and Elect Democrats continue. Thank you LDC Members!

Virtual Food Drive for the Contra Costa Food Bank

The Lamorinda Democratic Club is hosting a virtual food drive for the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano counties.  Our goal is to raise $2,021 before Inauguration Day.

Please donate whatever you can to this very worthy cause in these extremely trying times.  Every dollar you donate will provide 2 meals.

Your gift can mean that a parent won’t have to choose between food and other basic needs or a senior won’t need to choose between food and medicine.

Please join the LDC Virtual Food Drive Team here!
