53rd ADDC Draws South Bay Crowd

There was a full house at the 53rd AD Democratic Congress meeting held February 23rd in San Pedro at the new D and D Gallery (pictured at right).

Headed up by Bobbi Buescher, the event drew club members and officers from around the South Bay to enjoy brunch and get up-to-date on the activities of the new AD Congress. The crowd was honored to be joined by Assemblyman Ted Lieu and Senator Jenny Oropeza.

Regional Director Sergio Carillo spoke about the upcoming pre-endorsement conferences and State Convention. He said the draft of the Platform is on the State Party website and all registered Democrats can petition for changes and amendments.

Ted Lieu reported that Democratic voter registrations are up in several districts. He said that 2007 was a bad budget year in Sacramento: a 60% vote is needed to change it and six Republicans would have to cross over.

The Precinct Coordinating Committee talked about their new manual and database. Mary Ann Tyler, Edna Murphy, and Tony Hale described how precinct work is so crucial to

winning elections. When neighbors talk to neighbors often, they learn what’s important and they can feed this information back to the candidates.

Senator Jenny Oropeza offered her enthusiastic support for the precinct organization and said her office is available to provide printed information about community resources.

Please see the 53rd ADDC Events Calendar on page 4.


JFK Ad Honors Democratic Leaders

With contributions from BCDC and the West LA Democratic Club, our 53rd ADD Congress ran this full-page add in the booklet honoring the JFK "Profiles in Courage" Award winners. The event was held on February 28 at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City.

The ad honors Debra Bowen, our former State Senator and the other honorees, Yvonne B. Burke, James Duff, Senator Art Torres (Ret.), and Sal Rosselli.

This is the first time we have ever bought an ad and it was the talk of the event. By far the best one in the entire booklet, it was a fine tribute to our hero and former President, and a nod to our location here in Southern California, “53 by the Sea.”
