Welcome to the Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club website

Our club provides an opportunity for citizens to connect with one another, learn about political issues and Democratic values, and help elect Democrats to public office.  We meet monthly to hear speakers on issues that affect our community, socialize, and plan activities to support Democratic Candidates.

(No Meeting in December. Happy Holidays Everyone!)

Next Meeting: Monday, January 25th, 2021 at 7:00pm (Online Meeting)

This meeting will be an online meeting using Zoom. We will send out emails with the login information over the next few weeks.

On the agenda:

– Lucero Sanchez from San Diego CoastKeeper will give a presentation about issues and challenges regarding the cleanliness of our water in our community. Yes, water is a really big deal in San Diego and there are many challenges to overcome.

– Executive Board Member Harvey Levine will lead a discussion on local issues in our community and where we can go from here.

– Covid-19 “Fun”. Yes, Covid-19 sucks, , of course, but during these challenging times, maybe there are some new activities and ideas that you have that might help get us through this. Good books? Online classes? Interesting movies? Our treasurer, Jana Johnson, will lead a short discussion to help us get through these next few months

Our NOvember 23, 2020 meeting

So, how did that election thing go?

Well, it looks our Democracy survived… just barely.

Anyway, our Vice-President Steve Natoli gave a detailed presentation on what happened in the Presidential race (yay!) and in the US House of Representatives (Not nearly as good, we lost seats and we were expecting to win some).

Our Treasurer, Jana Johnson, gave a presentation on the Senate results. We picked up one seat (so far), but the Georgia Senate seats are still up for grabs. (Note from editor… we won both!)

Our President, Hugh Rothman, gave a presentation on the results in the local races (mostly great news, but with some frustrating results mixed in).

Hugh Rothman, with the help of Sunny Escovedo and Jason Bercovitch, also gave a presentation on the upcoming ADEMs, how to become an Assembly District Delegate to the CA State Convention, and what it means.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this meeting occurred via Zoom.
