Great News and a Party!

Great news! Last night, the San Francisco Democratic Party officially approved our new charter! This means that we are now an officially recognized Democratic Club, and we have the chance to send a representative from the club to vote for California Democratic Party endorsements.

To celebrate this club milestone, we are hosting a party and membership drive on Tuesday, June 30, 6-8pm at Club Waziema on Divisadero. And here's the best part: the first drink is on us for all dues-paying members. If you aren't a member yet, you can join right now online. Anyone who attends can also join at the event, so invite your friends!

WHAT: Party to Celebrate Our New Charter - First Drink on Us!

WHEN: Tuesday, June 30, 6-8pm

WHERE: Club Waziema, 543 Divisadero St, San Francisco, CA 94117

Please RSVP, and share with your friends!

Meet the New Executive Board

We have great news. As you may know, the District 5 Democratic Club has been seeking to fill two important positions on the Executive Board, and we're pleased to announce that Shaun Haines is our new Secretary and Derek Remski is our new Treasurer! We have also relaunched our website at

Shaun and Derek join President Eric Norman, Vice President of External Affairs Aimee Ellis, Vice President of Internal Affairs Derek Jansen, and Immediate Past President Thea Selby. 

With this great news, we would also like to invite you to our next Executive Board meeting on Wednesday, July 15 at 6pm, at Martin Macks on Haight. We will send out an agenda at a later date. 

We're excited for Shaun and Derek to join us as we steer the club to bigger and better things: rebuilding our membership, playing a larger leadership role in District 5 and in the citywide Democratic community, and working with the San Francisco Democratic Party to keep a Democrat in the White House in 2016. 

Let us know if you can attend our next Executive Board meeting and like us on Facebook

Stay tuned, and we'll be in touch.
