Blakespear Sign-Wave a huge success!!
Thank you very much for helping to make our September 24th sign waving event in Carlsbad a huge success! I was impressed with the size of our contingent and thrilled with the positive reception we received from the community.
We hope that you will consider joining us for our next event! On October 8th, just two days before ballots arrive, we'll be gathering in the Village Park neighborhood of Encinitas with the California Faculty Association, Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath, Mayor Catherine Blakespear, and Encinitas City Council Candidate Pam Redela.
We'll have light refreshments, an exciting speaking program, and an opportunity for volunteers to leave candidate literature at the doors of likely supporters. We'll be doing some emailing and calling to promote this event next week. Here is a link to more information and to sign up: https://www.mobilize.us/cadems/event/515988
Recent Club Meetings
September 10th Meeting
The club met via Zoom.
- Main Speaker: Dr. Mirle Rabinowitz-Bussell on Affordable Housing and Urban Planning
California is behind in keeping up with our overall housing demands. In addition the people who need housing the most are the least able to find affordable housing.
One of the biggest barriers to creating affordable housing is the perception that somehow those who need housing will somehow lower the neighborhood quality of life. New projects that have resulted from careful planning have shown that these perceptions are false.
- Candidate Endorsements
The club endorsed Rick Shea for the County Board of Education seat. Lance Schulte, running for the Carlsbad Treasurer position, also received our endorsement.
Nancy Hartwick still looking for help with her Postcards-to-Voters effort, with a goal of reaching 2000 new Democratic voters in the area.
Go-Team is ramping up for the general election. Contact Cecily or Marcella to learn how you can help.
Ed and Harold are looking for volunteers to staff our booth at the Encinitas Oktoberfest fair on the week of Sept. 25th.
Carlsbad City Council-person Teresa Acosta had news that the city has declared an emergency over two recent cyclist fatalities. The city is looking to expend $2 million on traffic control and education immediately, but they are reaching out to the community at large for thoughts and ideas. There will be a city council item on their Sept. 27th meeting. Teresa can be called or emailed at her city email.
