Upcoming California Democratic Party Chair Forums in Region 2


CADEM Region 2, Craig Cheslog, Director

Members of the California Democratic Party’s Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) will elect party officers (Chair, Female Vice Chair, Male Vice Chair, Secretary, and Controller) during the State Convention the weekend of May 19-21 in Sacramento.

Given the importance of this upcoming election, I wanted to make sure you were aware of two upcoming forums that are happening within Region 2 featuring candidates for California Democratic Party Chair.

On Saturday, April 22, the Napa County Democratic Party is hosting Eric Bauman and Kimberly Ellis starting at 7 p.m. at the Napa Valley College Little Theater. Click here for the Facebook event listing.

On Sunday, April 30, the United Democrats of Southern Solano County, Stonewall Democratic Club of Solano County, Northern Solano Democratic Club, NAACP – Vallejo Chapter, and the Community Democratic Club are hosting Eric Bauman, Kimberly Ellis, and Lenore Albert-Sheridan at 3 p.m. at the Norman C. King Community Center, 545 Magazine Street, in Vallejo. Click here for the Facebook event listing.

Both events will offer an opportunity for Democrats to hear from the candidates and ask questions.

Our chair for the past eight years, John Burton, is retiring. You can learn more about his legacy by clicking here to read highlights of the work he’s done since his election in 2009.

To learn more about the upcoming State Convention and other officer elections, please click here to read the Region 2 E-Newsletter sent out earlier this week.

To make the Region 2 Events Calendar more accessible and easier to use, I have moved it from the website to the California Democratic Party Region 2 Facebook page.

Facebook receives more traffic than the previous calendar on the Region 2 website. It is also easier to share events and to directly add club and candidate events from their Facebook pages. You can also subscribe to receive notifications on Facebook when events are added. Please check out the new Region 2 events calendar and let me know what you think.

You do not need to be a Facebook member to view the event calendar. But I need your help to keep it current with all the events happening in our area.

Please send me a message at craig@cademregion2.com if you have any questions. Clubs, endorsed candidates, and elected officials also can post their events directly. Send me a message if you would like to have the ability to do so. Let’s work together to keep the calendar updated for the Democrats in Region 2!

We need you to be a part of the California Democratic Party’s blue wave by Donating Every Month between now and the 2018 Election!.

DEM 2018 puts your donation where it matters most: in the tough races for the candidates who represent California’s progressive values. By joining DEM 2018 and making a small monthly donation you will help our endorsed candidates win from the top to the bottom of the ballot.

To become a member, just commit to contributing at least $5 each month for one year, or give a one-time $60 contribution. You’ll receive a beautiful DEM2018 lapel pin to show off your commitment to Democratic victories in ’18!

Please join DEM 2018 today! Your small monthly donation will combine with other activists throughout the state and help propel us to victory. You can help Region 2 set the pace for California Democrats!

My best,

Craig Cheslog, CDP Region 2 Director
