BECOME AN ASSOCIATE MEMBER

AND JOIN A COMMITTEE!!!

 


Getting and Staying Involved

Interaction and building of all our current Democratic Clubs is a priority. Regular reports, inviting club membership to our monthly meetings, and encouraging them to join a committee or become an alternate/associate member is important for all of us. The more, the merrier! With our newly chartered  Latina/o Club and a newer club being introduced at our next meeting, we are growing stronger! Keep it up! 

Another great way to support the party on a state level is to join DEM2018. *** DONATE EVERY MONTH... A one time contribution or monthly is a simple, easy great way to help keep the party strong all over California! 


I want to remind everyone that as elected members of the Central Committee, it is our responsibility to be representatives of Democratic values to the people of our County--helping to educate and guide them and finding and promoting Democratic candidates at all levels of service to our community. This year’s board or associate members could become the next city council person, supervisor, assemblymember, or senator.

There are many ways to get involved with the San Mateo County Democratic Party and we invite all local Democrats to support their Party by volunteering. Please take a look at our Web page, Facebook, or Twitter to keep abreast of events or issues that may be of interest. Make sure when you’re participating in a Democratic event that you use social media to get the word out. Make everyone want to be where you are!

Democratically Yours,
