A Reception for Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus

 ***TED LIEU!***


 Dear Member,

 Please join us in appreciation and support of the re-election of our dear friend and Club member, Congressmember Ted Lieu, Vice Chair of the House   Democratic Caucus, at a reception on February 27 in Venice.


 The campaign has generously offered, for a limited time, a $99 early bird price to Activists. Hurry, it won’t last much longer!


 Ted was one of the special guests at our Summer Party with Rep. Adam Schiff,   Asm. Tina McKinnor, Councilwoman Traci Park and joining us later, Rep.   Rick   Zbur. Ted always shows up for us, let’s do the same for him!

***Hope to see you there***




Sydney Kamlager-Dove


Last week the Club sent 100’s of postcards to

New York Congressional District 3 to remind voters to vote for

Democrat Tom Suozzi to replace disgraced #$%^ George Santos.

Yesterday our dear friend and Congresswoman Sydney Kamlanger-Dove called with an urgent request to join the Special Zoom Phone-bank

she put together with Congresswomen Zoe Longren and Sara Jacobs

to get out the vote for Tom Suozzi. How could I say no?

Please join me and our Board!


2:30PM – 5:00PM PST

Click Here to RSVP!

(If you are new to phone banking, they will provide a full training

to get you ready to remind Dems to get out and vote!)

Lorraine (Lori) Edith Geittmann

December 11, 1933 – January 5, 2024

Lori Geittman, a former president of Beach Cities Democrats as well as a local newspaper reporter and probation officer, was a strong supporter of the Democratic Party and a dedicated activist for numerous political campaigns and issues. She at one time served as staff for elected officials in Washington, DC, and treasured the memory from those years of having attended the inauguration John F. Kennedy. Lori was delegate to the State and County Democratic Party numerous times and held many party positions, including Chair of the Senior Caucus. She was also a delegate to the National Convention in 1980 and was involved in local government, serving on several commissions and boards. Lori could be counted on as a loyal ally or a fierce opponent, depending on which side of her strongly held beliefs you found yourself…

Dear Members,

While we were so looking forward to seeing you “live” at our first meeting of 2024, in the interest of public safely (yours!) the Board voted Monday night to hold our meeting virtually on Zoom. We have a history of very successful Zoom meetings over the past three years, and look forward to another great and informative one on Saturday!

President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is the most important federal legislative effort, ever, aimed squarely at addressing climate change, and, incidentally, towards addressing our commitments as a country. It implements California’s dramatic moves to limit the Greenhouse Gases pouring into our atmosphere at a national level. The Congresswomen will address the Scope and Goals of the IRA, its impact on US Economy and some of the programs intended to stimulate clean power generation and promote new tech.

Did you also know that the Federal Government will reimburse you to convert to more efficient appliances, appliances that save you money every time you use them while saving the Earth from Greenhouse Gases? Andrew Ellis, a founder of Climate Reality Project Los Angeles, will speak to the details of the consumer benefits available in the IRA’s electrification and efficiency programs.


Please Join Us! Be More Informed – Refute the Nay-Sayers and Keep President Biden in the White House!




We will provide post-carding options for you to do at home for the New York-06 Special Election on February 13 to replace Serial Liar MAGA George Santos with Democrat Tom Suozzi!
