Local Woman Makes Good


Toni Atkins Elected Speaker


San Diego Democrats for Equality's own Toni Atkins was elected unanimously on March 17th to be the next Speaker of the California Assembly. With her selection as Speaker, Toni becomes only the second Democratic woman and second member of the LGBT community to hold the post.




Toni posted on her Facebook page shortly after the election, "I am honored to have been selected by my colleagues today to serve as the next Speaker of the CA State Assembly. I am also grateful to have been able to share the moment with my spouse, Jennifer LeSar."




Be on the Lookout for Our Survey Invitation


One of the major report recommendations from the Club's recently completed Transformation Taskforce was that we develop a strong committee structure to spread out the work of the Club throughout our membership.  We will be sending an invitation to everyone later this week to take a survey on Committee/Volunteer opportunities.  The survey consists of only about a dozen questions and can be completed in a matter of minutes.  There are many ways you can step up and ensure that Democrats for Equality can continue to do our important work. The more people who step up, the easier the task for everyone so Please, accept our invitation when it lands in your email In Box.
