Exciting news! Sara Jacobs, San Diego’s latest Congressional representative, has agreed to join us for our meeting Wednesday at 7 pm, adding to an already stellar line-up of guests that includes San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher – who was selected chair of the county board just this week – and Dr. Jennifer Campbell, president of the San Diego City Council.
It’s a new year – and a new era. After literally decades of work, we’ve finally made San Diego into a Democrat-majority city and county. So now what? How will a Democratic-led government handle issues including housing, homelessness, transit and more – while first taming the Covid-19 monster? Find out from Fletcher and Campbell, two of the people who will be leading the charge into the new era.
And how can we expect the US to change with an adult in the White House?
Discuss those issues and more with the people who can make change happen. Meeting starts at 7 pm, but come early for unstructured conversation at 6:30 pm.
Also on the agenda: We’ll take a few minutes at the start of the meeting to elect the La Mesa-Foothills Democratic Club board for 2021. This club is not a spectator sport – you can – and should! – join the board. Find out more here: Run for the La Mesa Democratic Club board!.
And we have a couple of other guests, friends of the club we’re delighted to have join us for the new year. We’re not telling you now because, well, we like surprises.
