CADEM Assembly Election

Dear Palo Altans,

I am learning so much and I want to share. Please excuse and forgive me if what I am sharing is something you know about already. This is information about the Assembly District Election Meeting (ADEM) of the California Democratic Party and the election of the ADEM delegates. 

Date: Saturday, January 26, 2019

Time: Doors open 10:00am

Speeches begin: 10:15am

Registration/Voting starts: 10:45am

Registration/Voting ends: 12:45am

Location: Hillview Community Center, 97 Hillview Avenue, Los Altos, CA 94022

As stated on the CADEM website, the Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEMS) are held every two years (Saturday, January 12 or Sunday, January 13 and Saturday, January 26 or Sunday, January 27 of 2019) to elect 7 "self-identified female" and 7 "other than self-identified female" to be Assembly District Delegates (ADDs) to represent the Assembly District they are registered as a Democrat in.  

AD Delegates to the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) are responsible for planning and attending informational meetings throughout the region and working with other DSCC delegates throughout California to represent their community. 

A DSCC delegate is the representative for their committee and specific district. Palo Alto is in District 24. Delegates attend the annual Democrats Convention, network with other Democrats, elect Party officers, promote the California Democratic Party agenda, endorse candidates for statewide, legislative and congressional office, and vote to endorse resolutions and ballot measures all doing so while representing their constituency.

Therefore it is imperative we pay attention to this election as more and more resolutions and ballot measures have to do with removal of local governance and evermore tax initiatives.

There are slates that are formed, however, you can vote for them individually.  I want to remind that if your value quality of life, we need to retain local control over governance of our land use and zoning laws.  Local governance keeps our unique cities unique, preserving excellent K-12 public school education and maintaining the ability to provide city services that benefit the jurisdictions’ residents and community.

A total of 14 Assembly District Delegates (ADD) are elected to represent the Assembly District. I would like to share with you my list of delegates I will be voting for:
