Message from the S.F. Democratic Party Chair
More than 80 years ago, Will Rogers famously quipped: “I am not a member of an organized political party—I’m a Democrat.”
With 2016 promising fierce competition among so many terrific Democratic candidates vying for national, state and local offices, that observation will probably ring as true today as it did in the 1930s. But whatever our disagreements as Democrats in the coming year, no one should doubt our shared resolve for our party’s common purpose, or our ability to work together in November. Whatever our occasional disagreements, in fact, we San Francisco Democrats are unified and committed to achieve the full promise of equality, justice, economic security and more, as detailed in our California Democratic Party Platform and National Democratic Party Platform.
Sure, there probably will be times in 2016 when the Democratic Party seems disorganized, just like it did in Will Rogers’ day. But remember: even Will Rogers’ joke came at the height of FDR’s New Deal, when a vibrant and innovative Democratic Party was forging unprecedented advancements for America’s middle class and working families.
Today’s San Francisco Democratic Party still reflects that spirit of innovation and leadership, and we have a lot of hard work ahead of us to continue making progress. So, I hope we can count on you to join us as we work together for a sweeping Democratic victory in 2016!
