Our February 3 Welcome Back Party

The Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club hosted a Welcome Back party, firing us up for the upcoming election year. Multiple candidates spoke, including five judicial candidates, our endorsed City Council District 5 candidate, and five candidates for the County Democratic Party Central Committee for AD 77. We endorsed three of the judicial candidates by acclamation since they are running unopposed by any other Democrat in their races.

Delicious food was on hand, including multiple pies and cupcakes for dessert. And finally, Terry Norwood led us in a rousing game of “Name That Candidate (Or Past President)”. Ten clues were available and each team had to decide how many clues to be given (the fewer clues, the more points). Lots of fun, and we also learned some interesting facts about our candidates (and past presidents)!
