At our August meeting, Ray Waters announced that the Universal Health Care bill passed in the Senate and is now in the Assembly.

Diane Strack announced a scholar- ship fund called Future Leaders to help needy high school students. Candidates will be required to write a competitive essay. A donation bottle will be placed in the BCDC booths at our tabling events.

Jim Aldinger reported that he is on the South Bay Cities Council of Governments and is lobbying to get an extra seat added to the AQMD (South Coast Air Quality Management District). A bill to increase the membership was defeated this session, but Aldinger and

others will bring the issue up again next year.

It was announced that we have a new membership chair, Lynn Thompson. She will work with Barbara, Diane, and Edna to recruit new members and track current ones.

The club is still seeking a fund raising chair and callers for our phone tree.

We passed a motion to support all the Democratic candidates who won the primaries.

Last,the club will form a committee to investigate the application of Clean Money reform to local elections. The Clean Money initiative and other ballot propositions were discussed at the meeting; see story inside.

Our booth at the Hermosa Beach Fiesta over the Labor Day weekend drew in many new Democratic voters and even some former Republicans. Diane Strack (left, with Peggy Carter) managed the colorful space throughout the three-day holiday.
