BCDC Members came out to work again this Memorial Day weekend at our Fiesta Hermosa booth. We signed up 67 new voters, thirteen of whom were switching from Republican. Edna Murphy and Peggy Carter made sure the booth was staffed all weekend.

53rd AD June Meeting

The 53rd Assembly District Democratic Congress will hold its June meeting on Monday, June 23.

We are committed to electing Senator Barack Obama as President of the United States and moving him into the White House on January 20, 2009.

To get started in our effort to organize our entire area, as we did every Monday night at Hennessey’s "South Bay for Kerry" meetings, we will meet to "Come Together for Obama."

We are inviting a representative from the Obama campaign to speak and are excited to hear their "West Coast Strategy."

Everyone is invited to this very important meeting:

Monday, June 23
6PM Dinner, 7PM Meeting
Hennessey’s Tavern
313 Manhattan Beach Boulevard
Manhattan Beach

Democratic Ranks Growing


When the voter registration figures were last released in April, it looked like a promising trend. Now we know the trend is...real. The Democratic Party is growing, the Republican Party is shrinking and a third county so far ... has switched from "red" to "blue."As of April 4, 2008, Democrats have 469,700 more voters than they had at the same time in 2004, while Republicans are 109,870 below their 2004 numbers. In November of 2004, Democrats outnumbered Republicans by 1,374,907.

According to the California Secretary of State’s latest report of registration, Democrats added 304,454 voters to the rolls, while the Republicans added only 14,969 voters between January and May, 2008.

That means that twenty voters registered [Democratic] for every voter that registered [Republican].

... I once again credit our local Democratic organizations throughout California’s 58 counties for all their hard work in registering new Democrats. These numbers once again reinforce that the vast majority of Californians do not want a Bush third term with John McCain.
