San Mateo County Democratic Party
Cancellation of March General Meeting

In the wake of the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the San Mateo County Health Officer's advice to reschedule any non-essential gatherings, the SMCDEMS executive board has chosen to cancel our March meeting, scheduled for March 19th.
(Our scheduled speaker for that meeting, KQED Political Reporter Marisa Lagos has been notified, and we hope we'll be able to get time with her at a meeting later this year.)
Our next meeting is scheduled Thursday, April 16th, when newly elected members to our Democratic Central Committee will be sworn in. Additionally, we are pleased to welcome California Democratic Party Chair Rusty Hicks as our speaker that night.


Thank you to our speakers, sponsors, and attendees
for making the SMC Dems Big January Fundraiser,
Cocktails & Candidates:
Get In The Spirit(s) To Take Back America In 2020,
such a SUCCESS! 

Guest Speaker, Lt. Governor Eleni Kounalakis!

Join Us For The Future Of

The Democratic Party In Our County!



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! 

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,
