We work hard, but we also (Democratic) Party hard.
We get it. The election has wiped you out. You need time off. We are only human. But, we are continuing the fight!
And what's a fight without karaoke?
We are taking the month off from our traditional programming to bring you UNITY KARAOKE - co-sponsored by East Bay Young Democrats, the East Bay Women's Political Alliance, and more Democratic clubs to be announced soon.
We will come together and join forces as one, big young Democratic contingent to celebrate our victories!
Let us know if you are interested in being a co-sponsor.
All throughout the special elections, primaries, and the general election, you thought your duty as a voter was over after November 6, 2018.
On December 19, 2018, we will have one final election. This time it is elect a new executive board for the East Bay Young Democrats. This group of young progressives will help guide us into and through 2019. With the power of the general membership, this board will hold our newly inaugurated public officials' feet to the fire.
Furthermore, the 2019 California Democrats State Convention will take place right in our backyard: San Francisco!
The following positions on the executive board are as follows: President, Vice President of Membership, Vice President of Fundraising, Vice President of Programming, Vice President of Political Affairs, Secretary, Controller, Director of Communications, Policy Director, Parliamentarian, Northern Alameda County Representative, Southern Alameda County Representative, and West Contra Costa Representative. You can find out about the positions in our bylaws here.
The names and campaign statements or biographies of candidates that declare their intent to run no less than 7 days prior to the meeting at which elections take place shall be printed on the ballot. Declarations shall be made, in writing, to the Secretary and shall include candidate’s full name and the office they seek.
Please contact John Minot, our Secretary, to declare your intent to run.
To paraphrase one progressive Democratic presidential candidate from 1980, for us, a months weeks ago, this election came to an end. For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die.
More details to be released soon!
