We’ve got a heck of a great line-up for Wednesday evening’s annual holiday party and meeting of the La Mesa-Foothills Democratic Club, mixing business and entertainment.
On the business side: Jean Dittmyer will share information on Georgia’s Special Senate Election on January 5, and how we can help the two Democratic Senate candidates win. Jean is a tireless volunteer for local, county, congressional, state,, and national candidates. She has hosted phone banks on a weekly basis at her La Mesa home. Jean is also the point person for the Indivisible Movement for District 53.
That’s the business. On the entertainment side, we’ve got great musical guests and a spoken word artist – all local.
Lauren Hermas and Laura Payne will perform together. Lauren is a singer, previously with the local band Mixed Signals and the Resizters. And Laura is a local musician, bass player, co-founder and band member of the Resizters and the bassist for Engenue.
Separately, singer-songwriter Jeff Berkley formed Berkley Hart and made 11 records and toured the US, England and Australia extensively. He has played percussion and guitar with Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Indigo Girls, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Bob Wier, and many more musical luminaries. He won The Kerrville New Folk songwriter award in 1999,
And spoken word artist Tisha Tumangan is the director and CEO of Black Kat Theatre, a sketch comedy troupe focusing on politics and social issues.
The party and meeting is Wednesday, Dec. 2 – that’s in two days! Programming starts at 7 pm, with unstructured social discussion starting at 6:30 pm. It’s on Zoom, of course. Here’s the link:
Hopefully now that we’re on our way to having a competent adult in the White House, we can see each other in person again soon.
