On July 8, state party delegates residing in Region 18 (Assembly Districts 55, 57, 61, and 66) met in Gardena for the first regional meeting since the state party convention in May.
Delegates heard from Assembly member Al Muratsuchi and Congress member Sydney Kamlager-Dove (CD 37). Then they heard from candidates for the upcoming November 2024 elections in Assembly District 57 and Senate District 35, where the incumbents are terming out.
Executive Board representatives from each assembly district reported on events in their districts that they thought would be of interest to the group. Our representative, Tony Hale, spoke about the recent anti-LGBTQ+ activities of some local governments (e.g. Torrance) and in the communities (Palos Verdes).
Tony Hale also provided guidance on how to write and submit a resolution to the CADEM for consideration at the upcoming August Executive Board meeting.
