On September 17, 2017 the Palos Verdes Democrats will meet at 2:30 pm in the community room of the Peninsula Center Library.
Please join us. We encourage you to come at 2:00 pm for our social time where we enjoy delicious homemade goodies and conversation with like-minded Democrats.
Our September meeting will feature a discussion of money in politics as we gear up for the 2018 election cycle. We will be joined by Professor Peter Mathews.
Professor Mathews is the author of Dollar Democracy: With Liberty and Justice for Some. Dollar Democracy is about the corrupting influence of private money in politics that has caused a disappearing middle class, environmental destruction, the dismantling of the public education system, the endangering of our food and water supply, a lack of health care, and waste, fraud and abuse in the Military Industrial Complex.
