The Palos Verdes Democrats June 12 hybrid meeting (Zoom and in-person) began with a review of our speakers, preview of the July and August meetings, and announcements.

Here’s a preview of future PV Dems Meetings – please SAVE the DATES
1:26 July 17, 2022 – Annual Picnic and Board Installation, 5pm – 7pm on the lawn of St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church in RHE. As our Picnic Chair Anita Vaccaro said, “It’s that time of year again! Come join us in the spirit of celebration, friendship, appreciation and just to have fun!” Suggested donation for pre-ordered box dinners is $20. There’s limited seating and if you would like to sit on the lawn, we suggest you bring a chair or blanket. The Picnic registration is available here on our website.
3:17 August 21, 2022 – Annual Review of the 2021-2022 Supreme Court Decisions with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Tom Long. This will be a hybrid meeting – an in-person meeting at the Peninsula Center Library Community Room and virtually as a Zoom meeting.
3:51 PV Dems 1st VP Connie Sullivan talked about the fundraiser she hosted for Paul Seo, a member of our club who is running for RPV City Council in the November election. Congressman Adam Schiff attended and talked about his experience working with Paul Seo on the committee to endorse candidates for the West Point Military Academy. Paul zoomed into our meeting to thank Connie for hosting the event and to thank all the supporters who attended.
7:00 Report on the PV Dems successful tabling at the PV Street Fair. Fraser Perkins provided a tabletop spinning wheel to engage more with the Fair participants walking by. The participant spun the wheel to decide the November election winner and if the wheel landed on Republicans Win, they were told what they would lose (i.e. gun regulation) and if the wheel landed on Democrats Win, they were told what they would gain (i.e. more progress on gun safety).
8.29 Report on the March for Our Lives walk from the Manhattan Beach Pier to the Hermosa Pier. Over 200 people showed up including Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi.
