S.F. Democrats invited to participate in elections for State Convention delegates
Assembly District Election Meetings will be held on the weekend of Jan. 12-13
SAN FRANCISCO (Jan. 7, 2013)—San Francisco Democratic Party Chair Mary Jung today encouraged local Democrats to take part in their Assembly District Election Meetings over the weekend of January 12 and 13 to elect delegates to the upcoming 2013 California Democratic Convention.
“Keeping San Francisco’s Democratic Party strong means doing our part to make sure it’s participatory and continues to reflect the rich diversity of our City,” said Jung. “That’s why I strongly encourage local Democrats to take part in our local elections to choose the delegates we’ll send to our state convention in April.”
Eligible Democratic voters elect six men and six women to represent their Assembly District for both the 2013 and 2014 California Democratic Conventions. San Francisco has two Assembly Districts: the 17th, which is wholly contained in the City’s eastern half; and the 19th, which western San Francisco shares with a portion of northwestern San Mateo County.
- For the 17th Assembly District (represented by Assemblymember Tom Ammiano) the ADEM will be held on Saturday, January 12, with registration beginning at 10:00 a.m. The location is the African American Art & Cultural Center at 762 Fulton Street, Suite 300, in San Francisco. Paul Hogarth, who serves as the 17th ADEM Convener, may be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at (415) 509-2592.
- For the 19th Assembly District (represented by Assemblymember Phil Ting) the ADEM will be held on Sunday, January 13. Registration will begin at 11:00 a.m., and the program will begin at 1:00 p.m. The location is the Merced Room at Westlake Park, 145 Lake Merced Boulevard, in Daly City. Hene Kelly, who serves as the 19thADEM Convener, may be contacted by email at email@example.com, or by telephone at (415) 533-5244.
Voters may only participate in the ADEM if they are Democratic voters residing in the district, and if they registered to vote by the October 22, 2012 deadline. Exceptions are granted to those who turned 18 or were naturalized after the deadline, provided they have registered or will register onsite.
The 2013 California Democratic Convention will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center from April 12-14, 2013.
