Dona Benicia Room of the Benicia Library
Featured topic was Benicia School Board November election. Candidates’ panel.
Message from Ralph Dennis, Chair
Sept. 4, 2018
This is an especially important meeting. We have invited all five candidates running for the three open Trustee seats on the Benicia Unified School District Governing Board (Benicia School Board). A panel discussion is scheduled, which will include lots of time for questions from members and others present.
At the conclusion of the panel discussion, PDB members will vote for any of the candidates – up to three – that PDB should endorse or otherwise support to be elected to the Benicia School Board.
Also on the program, just prior to the School Board panel, is a candidate for Benicia City Council – Bill Emes, Jr. He filed papers after our meeting last month and wasn’t on our City Council candidates program, so we’ve provided him some time at this meeting to share his thoughts and answer questions from the audience.
DON’T FORGET – you’ve got to be a member to vote for endorsements in the elections. So, if you think you’re ready to join, you can pay at the meeting and vote that night – only $20/year. Our membership is up to 76, and we’ve shown a steady growth over the past 15 months or so of organization. JOIN US!!!!
It should be an informative and helpful meeting, with significant information on upcoming elections, as the election season moves into full gear. Signs are up all over town!
Hope you are able to make it – SEPT. 11TH, 7:00 PM, BENICIA LIBRARY.
Ralph E. Dennis
Chair, Progressive Democrats of Benicia
