If we knew you were coming we’d have baked a cake!
The CDP Team is always delighted to welcome our phenomenal Democratic candidates to Your Democratic Headquarters. This week, Lt. Governor candidate Eleni Kounalakis dropped by to file her paperwork for the CDP endorsement and to meet the CDP staff. Thanks for stopping by Ambassador Kounalakis!

From the Rick Perry “Oops” File
Earlier this week we accidentally re-sent Delegates the e-mail announcing the opening of registration for Convention. We apologize for any confusion (or deja vu).
In Case You Missed It
CDP Chair Eric C. Bauman commemorated Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a message calling on Democrats to “use the anniversary of his birth as a moment where we renew and redouble our commitment to carrying on the work he gave his life for – building a just and peaceful country where everyone is truly equal.”
CDP Vice Chair Alexandra Gallardo-Rooker and CDP Secretary Jenny Bach urged Democrats to turn out in force for today’s Women’s March events across the state. Your CDP Team was happy to March in Sacramento, and we’re grateful to every Democrat who turned out for today’s historic demonstration.
