March in the Flag Day Parade | Candidate endorsements

The La Mesa Flag Day Parade returns Saturday morning, June 4, and you’re invited to join us to march. We’ll have fun, hang around with fellow Democrats, have a nice walk, and show the community we’re here to represent them!

We’re still getting details—such as the precise time and location to meet!—but mark your calendar for that morning and maybe early afternoon. Expect to meet up a block or two from La Mesa Village and walk about a mile. We often go out for lunch together afterward too, enjoying one of La Mesa’s many fine eating establishments.

The club always has a big presence at the parade every year—it’s a highlight of our calendar.

We’re looking for people willing to drive their cars in the parade, and have the cars decorated.

If you are interested in joining us to march in the parade and/or volunteering your car to drive in the parade, contact board member Katie Sigeti at“.

We’ll follow up with more details when we have them.

Candidate endorsements: And join us for our regular general meeting June 1, when we’ll take a minute or two at the beginning to vote on a few candidate endorsements:

  • Matt Strabone for La Mesa Treasurer
  • Andrea Beth Damsky for Helix Water Board
  • Rebecca McRae, friendly incumbent, La Mesa-Spring Valley School Board

The meeting is 7 pm Wednesday, June 1, at the La Mesa Community Center, 4975 Memorial Drive—come a half-hour early for conversation with fellow Democrats.

The main topic of the meeting is “Yay Democrats!” Talking with local Democratic leaders about what the party has accomplished with its government majorities.
