Vote YES on Measures O & P!

Democrats have always supported our schools.  The DWC has endorsed Measures O & P in the special election and contributed $500 to aid the campaign.  This is a mail-in ballot due next Tuesday, November 17th.

If you have not yet done so, please return your ballot.  There is still time to do so by US mail.  If you prefer to drop them off, there is a drive by drop box in the parking lot of the County building opposite the main entrance.  Or you can take them to the Santa Cruz City Council office at City hall.

Now is the time!

We hope to see you all at the Democratic Women’s Club of Santa Cruz County Close the Gap Fundraiser, a fundraiser to elect more women to the CA legislature.  It will be held at the Darling House this Sunday, November 15th from 2-4 pm.  It is a very affordable ticket, sliding scale $25-$100.  DWC is supplying delicious appetizers and refreshments.  Please make your checks payable to Close the Gap CA.


Karina Cervantez Alejo, Watsonville City Councilmember and candidate for the CA Assembly seat being vacated by her husband Luis Alejo, is our special guest. If Karina is elected she will be the first woman from Santa Cruz County to be elected to a statewide office.

It would be lovely to see you there.  It is shaping up to be a nice event; a good crowd of women and a few gentlemen supporters have sent RSVPs.  All are invited.
