Joan Buchanan Speaks about the Delta Tunnels

Thursday, June 23 in Danville at the Crow Canyon Country Club.  Opportunity to have dinner at 6:30 pm.  Program begins at 7:00 pm.

The San Ramon Valley Democratic Club is pleased to welcome our former Assemblymember Joan Buchanan to update us on Restore the Delta’s efforts to stop Governor Brown’s plan to build huge tunnels under the Delta in order to increase the amount of water siphoned from the Delta and directed to the Central Valley and southern California.  Joan is our ‘California water guru,” because of her excellent knowledge about California water issues. We are looking forward to hearing her speak about the water issues of the Delta.

Presidential Campaign Contact Info

The Democratic Party is not officially involved with either of the campaigns for President until after the national convention this summer. At this time, we have members of the Democratic Party of Contra Costa County who are strong supporters of Hillary Clinton and some who are strong supporters of Bernie Sanders. We have a couple of great candidates, and we encourage both sides to treat the other campaign with respect as we move to the California Primary and on to the convention in Philadelphia July 25-28, 2016.

For information about either campaign or how to order campaign material, click the Read More button below.

Convention Delegate Selection Locations May 1

The convention delegate caucuses are May 1, 2016. The caucus doors at every location open at 2:00 and the meetings start at 3:00 . According to the FAQ from the California Democratic Party: "Registered Democrats who live in that [Congressional District] can vote once they have signed in – as long as you are in line by 3pm, you will receive a ballot to vote.” So you MUST make it to the event and be in line BY 3pm. Do not be late! If you arrive early and sign in, you may vote and then leave.
NOTE: The CDP Regional Directors have informed me that Democrats may only vote in ONE caucus. You may not vote at the Clinton Caucus and then go across town to vote at the Sanders Caucus or vice versa.
