Survey Says!
In our efforts to build a stronger, more effective and more responsive California Democratic Party, we will periodically send out surveys on issues we’re considering.

We currently have two surveys out, and if you haven’t had a chance to complete them yet, please do so. Your feedback helps us shape CDP policy and make our Party more effective for you.

The surveys are on the feasibility of providing childcare at CDP meetings and using mobile app technology to reduce wasteful printing and increase accessibility and transparency for CDP members.

In Case You Missed It…

CDP Chair Eric C. Bauman responded to the Trump Administration’s decision to end DACA and put almost one million Californians at risk for deportation:

“This is a spiteful and hurtful decision that will result in enormous human suffering for our entire country, not just the ‘Americans-in-all-but-name’ who now face the threat of deportation and separation from their families. This is not who we are as a country, and California Democrats are and will remain united in our opposition to Trump’s assault on immigrants.”

Senator Ricardo Lara penned a message to delegates urging support for his CDP-endorsed bill, Senate Bill 395 to end the school-to-prison pipeline. Check out the great video he released disucssing his legislation!

The CDP also expressed it’s support for Senator Bob Wieckowski’s student loan debt relief legislation, SB 16.

And your CDP Leadership team commemorated Labor Day at events across California. CDP Chair Eric C. Bauman began the day keynoting the Napa/Solano Central Labor Council Labor Day Breakfast while Vice Chair Daraka Larimore-Hall fired up the North Bay Labor Council Breakfast. Chair Bauman then spoke at the South Bay Labor Council Picnic in San Jose, before joining Vice Chair Alexandra-Gallardo Rooker, Secretary Jenny Bach and Controller Dan Weitzman to cap the day off at the Sacramento Central Labor Council Labor Day BBQ.

Unions are the backbone of the California Democratic Party, and your CDP Leadership Team is proud to stand in solidarity with working men and women across California, not just on Labor Day, but every single day of the year.

One week closer to 2018!
