Everything’s Coming up Blue Roses 2023 – 2024
Vacation time summer is over and now we’re into Fall. As we go through the winter months, spring will heat up, and Blue Roses will bloom. Preparations for the upcoming Election Season 2024 are underway, and campaigning by our Democratic Candidates is beginning.
The California Democratic Party (CADEM) holds its Endorsement Convention during the weekend of November 17th through the 19th. Convention delegates will determine the candidates we will back. A pressing need at the moment is a Democratic candidate for Senate District 1. Know anyone?
First things, first. Your voice is needed for our October 5th AADC meeting. Our delegates want to know whom they should endorse at the Pre-endorsement Conference scheduled for October 20th through the 21st. Your voice will be carried to Endorsement Convention in November.
Barring any further new information, the following candidates have announced:
Candidates for U.S. Senator from California
Candidate for Congressional District 3 Representative
Candidate for Assembly District 5
Please come prepared to vote during our October 5th, 2023, AADC General Meeting.
A reminder, the terms of our AADC officers are up as of the end of December. President, Vice President, and Secretary will be on the slate. Who do you want for 2024, or are you interested? Bring your nominations to our November 2, 2023, meeting. Those nominated can make their case for these positions starting that evening, and through our December 7th election night.
Thanks to our last AADC speaker, Jessica Morse. She spoke on how California has managed its forestry to mitigate wildfire issues present and future. The accomplishments of her team rewarded our State by reducing the potential threat of major wildfire events in 2023.
Our October 5 AADC General Meeting guest speaker will be Julia Svetlana Juarez, Deputy Commissioner, Community Relations and Outreach State Insurance Office. Her subject will be the changes in the California Fair Plan, offering incentives to homeowners who meet defensible space requirements, home hardening, and are members of Firewise communities.
