Fran Sdao Chair of OC Dems discussed the recall effort for Josh Newman. Details are in the Josh Newman Recall Post.
Voter registration is critical. Registered Democrats in Orange County are increasing. Currently there are 525,000 Democrats, and that is only 4% below Republican registration.
There are voter registration opportunities available. We are only asking Democrats, so the communications should be friendly. Registering Voters is very easy. The form is self-explanatory, and there is a training on-line at www.canyondems.org
Voters must re-register if they have a new address or wish to change party affiliation.
There is a Voter Registration post listing the current opportunities. More will surely follow so prepare with the training.
Guest Speaker at the meeting was Melissa Morgan, Director of Partnerships for OC Human Relations Commission
Details of her presentation are in another post.
The next meeting of the Canyon Democrats is Tuesday August 15, 7pm, Norman Murray Center
