Democrats To Meet, Elect Delegates For Convention

flagThe California Democratic Party is convening Assembly District Meetings (ADEM) to select delegates in each of the state's 80 Assembly Districts this Saturday and Sunday. Local Democrats who were involved in the 2010 campaign are invited to help select delegates at 2 p.m. Saturday at a meeting in Spurling Hall at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church

"These elections allow all Democrats to make their voices heard”, said Michael Cruz, President of the Democratic Club of the Santa Clarita Valley, “It allows all Democrats to run to be a delegate and have their voices heard by our state leadership.  I would encourage everyone to arrive early and meet all of the candidates who are running to represent you!"
