In advance of the March 3 California Primary Election, we want to take a straw poll of our Progressive Democrats of Benicia preferences and offer Benicians an endorsement. So… we’re planning a Democratic presidential candidates’ forum for our February 12 meeting.
We are currently reaching out to candidate representatives in hopes that many will be able to attend and give brief comments. We are contacting Biden, Buttigieg, Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar, Yang, Steyer, and Bloomberg. Local supporters will present if we are unable to get an official campaign representative.
After the presentations by the candidates’ representatives, PDB members will vote to endorse the candidate of their choice.
Members not present will have a week to vote online via the website. An online Membership Poll will go up on the website on 2/12/20 after the meeting.
Endorsement results will be posted on the website after online voting has closed on 2/19/20. Only members can vote.
IMPORTANT: if you are a member of PDB, January is the month to renew your annual dues (unless you joined since October, 2019, in which case your initial membership and dues count for 2020). PLEASE PAY TODAY!
