October Halloween General Meeting

October 31, 2015 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT

Issa on Parade 2014

October 31st is our next general meeting. It’s Halloween, and what is really frightening is who is control of congress!  Can you imagine having someone like Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan, Jason Chaffetz, or even Darrell Issa as Speaker of the House?!!!  Oye, I need chocolate to calm me down…

No, no, no. One of our speakers is not Darrell Issa. That would be scarey! Again this month we have two terrific speakers.  David Eisenstein is the  founder and treasurer for the MONSTAH SUPER PAC, based in Carlsbad.  The #1 item on their Mission Statement is to defeat Darrell Issa. 

Fortunately, Democrats have a worthy challenger:  Douglas Applegate, Esq., a resident of San Clemente.  Mr. Applegate is a USMCR Colonel ret. and a seasoned trial attorney with a law office in Vista.   He recently opened a campaign office at 380 S. Melrose Dr., Vista.  If you would like to volunteer, contact 888 583-2266 or dlapplegate@earthlink.net.  Douglas Applegate was also endorsed by DEMCCO.

Roberto RodriguezOur other speaker is Roberto Rodriguez, who has just been elected as a voting director of the National Education Association (NEA), the nation’s largest professional employee organization.  Since 1857, the NEA has crusaded for the rights of educators and children.  The NEA is affiliated with the top education agency in all 50 States.  In California, it is the CA Teachers’ Association. 

Mr. Rodriguez also serves on the Executive Board of the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, along with DEMCCO’s own Phil Hanneman.

So come on out and meet with us, share some great political discussions, talk about the presidential election and have a nice cup of coffee with some other friendly Democrats. And, who knows we may even have a few of our local politicians stop by to talk to us and even seek our endorsement. 

Before the general meeting at 10-Pat McFarlane’s Political Action Committee meets at 9 am.   Participation open to all members.  This Committee, more than most any other, represents what DEMCCO and other volunteer political groups are all about.  There is much to be done in this coming election cycle and Pat knows what to do.  Her contact info:  P.A.McFarlane2016@gmail.com 760-439-1481.
