Energized by the enormously successful 2012 General Election last November, today's local Democratic Party reflects the combined efforts of hundreds of veteran activists and enthusiastic newcomers. Working together, local Democrats are making a real difference -- not just for our endorsed candidates and ballot measures at election time, but to make our voices heard throughout the year on the priorities we Democrats care about. We're taking on Republicans more effectively than ever on issues like gun control, immigration reform, civil rights, fair tax policies, sensible budgeting, and more.
As you may know, March 8 Friday marked an important milestone for the San Francisco Democratic Party in 2013. More than 400 loyal Democrats came together for a highly successful breakfast fundraiser at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins Hotel, generating much-needed funding for the ambitious voter registration and voter education programs we will be pursuing throughout the year.
(You can check out photos from the March 8 Event on the Alain McLaughlin Photo Gallery, where you can even order copies.)
Special thanks are due to the March 8 event’s co-host, Mayor Ed Lee; to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, who was our special guest; and to former Mayor Willie Brown, who was (as always) highly entertaining as our program's Master of Ceremonies. We’re also grateful to all the elected members of the Democratic County Central Committee. San Francisco Democrats can take great pride in the fact that your committee members had a 100 percent participation rate in helping make the fundraising event a stellar success.
Of course, the success of San Francisco's Democratic Party depends on loyal Democrats like you, who are willing to support our local party in so many different ways. If you were not able to attend the March 8 event, you can still make a contribution online through ActBlue right here:
(Note: Leader Pelosi appeared at this event as a special guest. She did not ask for funds or donations.)
United for Victory...Beyond 2012!
San Francisco's Democratic Party is as diverse San Francisco itself. And in 2012, we demonstrated our ability to unite for critically important priorities: re-electing President Obama; re-electing Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi; passing Gov. Brown's revenue measure to maintain vital public services; and beating back right-wing attacks on California's working families. But the San Francisco Democratic Party's work isn't done. I hope we can count on you to join us in making a difference for Democratic values in the years ahead!
