Club Endorses David Alvarez for Mayor

In case you missed last night's meeting, the club voted to endorse David Alvarez in the November 19 special election for Mayor of San Diego. On the first ballot, Alvarez received 59% of the vote (60% required for endorsement), with 36% for Nathan Fletcher. On the second ballot, the vote was 66% for Alvarez and 34% for Fletcher.


Be sure to read next week's eNews which will have a link to Mark Conlan's detailed article about the meeting, including the remarks from Interim Mayor Todd Gloria as well as the mayoral candidate debate.  



  AIDS Walk San Diego 2013

Please Sponsor Our AIDS Walk Team!


Assembly Majority Leader Toni Atkins and San Diego City Councilmember David Alvarez have joined the Democrats for Equality AIDS Walk Team.  Because we've been busy with the Freedom Awards and the Mayoral Candidate Forum, we haven't had time to focus on securing AIDS Walk donations, so we're making a final, last minute plea so we can reach our goal of $1000. 


This year's event, which begins and ends in Balboa Park will be on Sunday morning, September 29, 2013, is the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser and the biggest non-governmental financial provider for HIV/AIDS in San Diego County.


Click here to join our team or to sponsor one of our team members. In the Personal Notes section of the donation screen, please consider indicating that your donation is in memory of our past president Gloria Johnson, who passed away last Sunday.  Gloria was a case manager for AIDS patients during the early years of the epidemic and donating to AIDS Walk is a wonderful way to honor her. 



Thank you for your continuing support of San Diego Democrats for Equality.
