Benicia Progressive Democrats Meeting on July 12 at Benicia Library  

Benicia, CA  (July 7, 2018) – The Progressive Democrats of Benicia (PDB) will hold its monthly meeting on Thursday, July 12 at 7 p.m. at the Benicia Library’s Dona Benicia Room. The library is located at 150 E L Street, Benicia.  The meeting is open to the public, and the community is invited to attend.

According to Ralph Dennis, PDB Chair, “We will be focusing much of the discussion at this meeting on upcoming elections in Benicia and statewide and what our Club can do to support progressive-minded candidates. Lynette Henley, Region 2 Director for the California Democratic Party, will discuss the recent June Primary results and offer suggestions on how PDB can best marshal its members in support of the November elections.  We will also discuss the Benicia School Board Trustee elections, where three of the five Trustees are up for reelection, as well as California Congressional District 10 (Oakdale, Manteca, Modesto, Tracy),where we hope to help unseat the Republican incumbent.”

Progressive Democrats of Benicia is a local organization founded in 2017 and chartered by the Solano County Democratic Party with membership from Benicia, Vallejo, and Fairfield. Additional information on the meeting is available at PDB’s web site http://progressivedemocratsofbenicia.org/.
