Please joinÂ theÂ Orange County Young Democrats for theirÂ endorsement meeting next Thursday, September 9th at the IBEW Union Hall in Orange!
TheirÂ guest speaker will be Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez. Congresswoman Sanchez has been Orange County’s only real voice in Washington for more than a decade, and is facing a stronger than usual tea-bagger challenger this year.
Come find out the latest news from Washington DC and how you can support her re-election campaign. With about a month until Vote By Mail ballots go out, the time to volunteer is NOW!Â
The club willÂ also be endorsing candidates for local offices.. speed dating style! “We will break up into small groups and candidates will jump from group to group roughly every 5 minutes,” said President Nick Anas.Â “This will give the chance for our members to ask the questions that are important to them in a more informal setting. We will then make our endorsements.”
SeatsÂ considered for endorsementÂ will include Mayoral, City Council, Community College, and School Board races. To be considered for endorsement a candidate must meet the following criteria.
- Inform the club via email no later than Tuesday, September 7th that they wish to seek the OCYD endorsement (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- PerÂ OCYD bylaws, the candidate must be a registered Democrat to seek an endorsement
Anyone is welcome to attendÂ the meeting, but in order to vote you must be a chartered member of the organization.
Note: They are NOT meeting atÂ their usual location this month!
