San Joaquin Valley Democratic Club
Hardest Working Club in the Valley
Being a registered democrat who has voted mostly for democratic candidates in every election, I am incredibly disappointed in how people encouraging voter registration for the democratic party have been behaving.
Yesterday at the farmers market in Tracy CA, my husband was stopped by three different people for the same organization asking if he was registered to vote. As we were leaving, another man with a clip board stopped us and tried to engage my husband in a conversation about “the current political climate of the country.” We were in a bit of a rush out of there to get our cranky toddler home for a nap, but this man was extremely aggressive when my husband did not want to engage in conversation. I’ve never seen anything like that before.
About an hour later, a fourth group of people came to our door. Because our son was sleeping, I did not answer the doorbell immediately. The group of three people on my doorstep then began to pound loudly on the door until we answered it. We were greeted with the same question we’d already been asked earlier. “Are you registered to vote?”
Yes, we are. And yes we are registered democrats. No, we do not want to discuss politics with you on the street. No, we do not want to discuss politics with you on our doorstep. Also, we have a sign on our door asking people not to knock for sales, religious or political views. It would be lovely if you could remind the people who are out and about on the behalf of the party to be respectful. Thank you!
Thank you for your comments, and I am sorry you had that experience. We are in Fresno, but I will gladly forward your comments to someone in San Joaquin county if you would like me to.
the news is not decisive… i wanted to make a donation to the opponent to devin nunes, but it sounds like there are 3 democratic opponents? so instead of donating, i will sut in the sidelines wondering if we as a country are to be subjected to devin nunes for another term… it is a shame to elect such a political criminal….
There are 3 Democrats that are running against Mr. Nunes this term. Our club has endorsed Bobby Bliatout this time because of his platform and positions that he has taken. Here is his website, I hope you look at it and consider supporting him too. https://www.bobbybliatout.com/
Hi San Joaquin Valley Democratic Club –
I’m Michelle, the Northern CA Deputy Organizing Director for the Warren for President campaign. I wanted to reach out personally as staff and volunteers across the country are working hard to secure Senator Warren’s campaign to be the next President of the United States!
As you may know, this campaign relies on community members from all over California to volunteer and get engaged at every level. I was inspired to get involved because of her comprehensive plans for many issues that affect me and my communities. It’s not just lip service with Senator Warren, it’s her commitment to big, structural change that continues to inspire me.
Every day, volunteers just like you are empowered to rally their friends and communities to host house parties, to knock on doors and to make calls – any reason to connect and share some of the inspiring reasons that they are getting politically activated. You can see some of the events that are taking place locally by visiting MobilizeAmerica – California for Warren.
Above just visiting our events page, we want to help you get engaged locally. Don’t worry, there are many ways to get involved and we’ll work with you every step of the way.
I’d love to share more about why I joined Team Warren and to hear what matters to you this upcoming election. Can we schedule a virtual hangout or call in the next couple weeks?
Looking forward to connecting soon!
We invite you to come to our club meeting and introduce yourself and the Warren campaign to us. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday January 15. We call to order at 6:30pm. Our program will be a presentation on the Voters Choice Act that is being used in Fresno Co. starting with the 2020 primary. We meet at the Denny’s on Shaw at First, 1110 E. Shaw Ave. Fresno CA 93726. Hope to see you there.
