Democrats for Equality,
We announced at our August 18th meeting that we will have a special endorsement meeting to be held on Thursday, September 1st at 7:00pm -- please note the usual time change!
Recently, Governor Newsom appointed San Diego County resident and current Associate Justice Patricia Guerrero as our new Chief Justice to our California Supreme Court. Filling Justice Guerrero's seat, Gov. Newsom appointed Alameda County Superior Court Judge Kelli Evans -- the first self-identified lesbian to the California Supreme Court.
Due to both appointments, there may be statewide judicial retention elections on the November ballot, so we will consider taking a position on both justices.
We will also consider endorsements for the two remaining seats on the San Dieguito Union High School Board, three seats on Poway Unified School Board, Board of Equalization, and we'll consider adopting our County Democratic Party's positions on local ballot measures.
