After a rigorous interview process with state and local candidates, the Lake County Democratic Central Committee has announced its endorsements for the March 2024 statewide primary election.
The Lake County DCC Annual Legislators’ BBQ was a rousing success!! Our honored guests included U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson, State Sen. (and President Pro Tem Designee) Mike McGuire, Assemblymember (and Assembly Speaker Pro Tem) Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, state Treasurer Fiona Ma and several local elected officials. The event was held Nov. 5, 2023, at Obsidian Middle School in Clearlake, raising more than $25,000 to help support the party and local candidates in nonpartisan races.
It’s always great to get together with a room full of motivated Democrats, but this tasty lead-in to the 2024 elections might have been the most important yet. We enjoyed hearing from our representatives! Thank you to all who helped and to Roy Zimmerman and Good Measure for providing entertainment!
Congresswoman Barbara Lee will speak briefly at our upcoming Lake County Democratic Central Committee meeting held via Zoom on October 4th at 645PM. The meeting begins at 630PM. She is a candidate for the US Senate race. If you are a registered Democrat in Lake County and would like to attend, please send an email to: email@example.com and we will provide a Zoom link to you prior to the meeting. We will be extending an invitation to the other candidates to speak at future meetings. Thank you for taking the time to evaluate each of the candidates.
A group of Lake County Democrats were proud to participate in the 2023 Clearlake Annual July 4th parade (despite the very high temperature).
We led off with our banner
Lake County Democrats – Proud of our Diversity
followed by our decorated truck with Mickey Mouse on the hood proudly wearing his pride cape
and our signs – Everyone is Welcome, Everyone Belongs.
It was heartwarming that our message of diversity and inclusion received such a warm reception from the crowd.
Thanks to CA State Treasurer Fiona Ma’s husband Jason for stepping in at the last minute with his truck after it became clear that weather conditions were not ok for our planned horse color guard and our mini cooper.
And on to 2024.
The Democratic Party has long been at the forefront of championing the rights of people with different sexual orientations and/or gender expressions. On June 6, 2023, local Dems gave powerful testimony when the Lake County Board of Supervisors passed a proclamation celebrating LGBTQIA+ Pride Month.

Today, Explained hosts Noel King and Sean Rameswaram sat down with Frost and David Hogg, a co-founder of March for Our Lives. Hogg and Frost are part of America’s increasingly politically influential Gen Z generation. They shared what they think their generation cares about when it comes to gun violence, climate change, and the 2024 presidential election. Plus, Rep. Frost walks us through the details of a new bill he co-introduced with Sen. Chris Murphy, which would create the first federal office dedicated to gun violence prevention.
