This is my last official newsletter as Chairman of the Democratic Party of San Mateo County. We will be holding our reorganization elections on January 19th, 2017 and I have decided not to run for re-election this position. 

My demands from personal life and my "real job" need more attention. I will continue to support and engage as much as I'm able. It has been an enormous honor and gratifying privilege to lead the party for these last two years. We've increased our visibility, raised  funds, and helped many Democrats get elected in our county. I hope I've made you proud in my leadership and I know I leave everything in good hands with the new leaders. 

We will be electing:
Chair
No. Vice Chair
So. Vice Chair
Corresponding Secretary
Recording Secretary
Controller
3 State Party Eboard Reps
3 additional State Delegate seats. 




   We need YOUR HELP to be strong and set the example, I hope you will consider VOTING for our ADEM delegates to the State Party (cadem.org) on January 7th and 8th, or become a member of one of our sub-committees or an associate member of the Democratic Central Committee of San Mateo County (smcdems.org). 






 


DEMOCRATIC CLUB EVENTS AND NEWS:

If you are in a Democratic Club or are a leader in those clubs, encourage your members to become alternates or associate members of the Central Commitee. It's a great way to get more involved. As one of the levels of memberships, you can attend state conventions as a proxy OR join one of our great committees!

REMEMBER...ANY DEMOCRATS IN SAN MATEO COUNTY WHO REGISTERS AS AN ASSOCIATE MEMBER CAN SERVE ON A COMMITTEE AND CAN BE ELEGIBLE TO BE ASSIGNED A PROXY VOTER AT CONVENTIONS!          JOIN NOW!

 


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! 

Another great way to support the party on a state level is to join DEM2016. *** 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!

Help me in inviting all local Democrats to join us in keeping San Mateo County BLUE!
Democratically Yours,

 

Jeffrey Adair

Chair, SMCDEMS
