Happy Holidays and get ready to vote in the ADEMs
It was great to meet so many members, old and new, at our 2022 Winter Holiday Party graciously hosted by Leslie and Clint Bruce at their home in Pt Loma.
Clubmember Rebecca Taylor — acting Chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party — announced that she's running for a full-term in January.
We were also honored to hear from newly elected member of the Board of Equalization, Mike Schaefer, former State Assemblymembers Lori Saldaña and Howard Wayne, and Senate Pro Tempore Toni Atkins' representative, Doug Case. And special thanks to Barbara Bry, who made a generous donation to the club.
Tommy Hough later sent regrets that he wasn't able to attend but wanted to thank club members for their support and generosity towards his campaign.
