On November 7, at 11:24 a.m., the election for the President and Vice-President of the United States was finally called. We learned the will of the people, elected Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. In the excitement surrounding that day and renewed hopes for the future, it felt like a weight had been lifted off our shoulders. Our democracy had been saved.
Many of your neighbors and fellow Democrats worked many hours volunteering to make sure we registered new voters and insured voters got to the polls, or sent in their ballots. Our club Democrats in Sun City mailed over 6,000 postcards to voters from coast to coast and spent many hours texting and phone banking to get out the vote. We made sure that everyone who wanted to display a lawn sign in our community was able to get a sign. Due to Covid, we were not able to celebrate our victory as usual, but we hope to do so sometime in the future.
The fight to save our democracy is not over. In the months ahead we will continue to support the Biden administration’s agenda and look ahead to the 2022 Mid-Term Elections to make sure we keep the House and elect Democrats to the Senate and support the nominee for California Governor and other local and state races.
It is important that we stand strong as a Democratic community right here in Sun City. Now is the time to renew your membership with the Democrats in Sun City for 2021. We will work together to support local and national Democratic candidates, educate ourselves on the important topics that affect our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren. We can’t let what happened the last four years happen again. Now is the time to get involved and take action by renewing your membership and doing your part. We will continue to conduct our meetings via Zoom, due to Covid. Our hope is that we will begin to meet again soon in person, when it is safe to do so.
We urge you to renew your membership in order to help us continue our efforts to support the Democratic Party. Membership dues are $20 per person, per year and an application is enclosed for your convenience. We look forward to seeing you soon. Stay safe and well.
