Unless the situation relating to the COVID-19 pandemic deteriorates further, SBLW Democratic Club members will meet face-toface for the first time in more than a year on Wednesday, Aug. 18 in Clubhouse 2 (located at 13681 El Dorado Drive) begining at noon. Members who have an email address or phone number registered with the club will be notified if a last-minute decision is made to meet by Zoom instead.
The Aug. 18 membership meeting—whether held via Zoom or face-to-face—will feature a two-person panel covering two different issues of concern to voters:
• Alyssa Napuri, campaign manager for Harley Rouda, will cover what to expect in the June 2022 Primary Election. The emphasis will be on plans to recapture the 48th Congressional District for the Democrats.
• Nathen Searles, president of the Seal Beach Democratic Club, will bring the club up to date news on the Sept. 14 Recall Election.
LW voters will be able to deposit their Sept. 14 Recall Election ballots at a secure drop box located at 13531 St. Andrews Drive, in front of the Amphitheater. The drop box will be available 24 hours a day beginning Monday, Aug. 16. Voters who need assistance delivering their ballot to the drop box can email [email protected] com or call (562) 296-8521.
LW Democrats and supporters who are interested in receiving in-depth and up to date reporting on the issues being discussed at the Aug. 18 meeting as well as other issues of concern can subscribe to the club’s electronic newsletter. There is no charge for the newsletter, although readers are also encouraged to join the club if they are not already members. Email [email protected] or call the editor Mary Larson at (562) 296-8521 to subscribe.
Input from LW Democrats and their supporters is always valued, be it by LWers becoming a member of the club, serving on the club’s board or a committee, attending membership meetings or just by being a loyal supporter of Democratic values.
