DEMCCO Endorses in Strategically Critical Oceanside Races
March 3, 2020
At DEMCCO’s February 22, 2020 meeting, endorsement votes were held for the Oceanside Mayor and Oceanside City Council, District 4 races. There were two Democratic candidates participating in the endorsement for each race.
While these races will be on the November 3, 2020 ballot, endorsement was sought early because they have been designated strategically critical. Some members expressed concern that these endorsements should not be considered until later, e.g. August, however, the majority of the membership supported proceeding with the endorsements. Early endorsement allows candidates more time and resources to conduct a successful campaign.
DEMCCO’s Bylaws require that a candidate receive a minimum of 60% of the votes in favor of their endorsement. One ballot was held in each race and the 60% threshold was reached in both races. The results are as follows:
- Oceanside Mayor: Esther Sanchez (73%)
- Oceanside City Council, District 4: Jane Marshall (60%)
Congratulations, Esther Sanchez and Jane Marshall. Now let’s get busy working on a November 3 win!
Proposed Bylaws Amendments
November 20, 2019
Some amendments to the DEMCCO Bylaws have been proposed and they are being offered here to get input from members. Please look these over and send your concerns to email@example.com. Your opinion is very important!
First, an Ad Hoc Committee worked on revising the Candidate Endorsement section. The first document is the amendments side-by-side with the current Bylaws. The Ad Hoc Committee is suggesting that a procedure document be included as an Appendix to the Bylaws and that is the second document,
Draft Ad Hoc Candidate Endorsements
DRAFT Ad Hoc Procedures
The last document is the entire current Bylaws with a variety of amendments especially to the Membership section. Some are changes required by the San Diego County Democratic Party while others are changes suggested by the Membership Chair, Shirley Anderson. Finally, amendments to the section on Resolution Endorsements are done to make it more inclusive of ballot measures and propositions and to shorten the notification time to enable DEMCCO to approve resolutions where there is limited time for approval. The San Diego County Democratic Party requires 7 days from the time the resolution is received and when it is voted on by the Central Committee.
