This year on your ballot you will get the opportunity to vote for six people from your Assembly District to represent you on our local County Central Committee. Across the nation, County Central Committees promote the growth and development of the Democratic Party, organize locally, and support Democratic candidates and the Democratic platform. Our San Diego County Central Committee is made up of six members from each Assembly District, along with Ex-Officio, Designated, Lifetime, Alternate, and Associate members with organizational roles in the county party and chartered clubs.
What do County Central Committee members do?
They represent and serve the voters in their district as part of the only organization responsible for endorsing and electing Democrats to public office in San Diego County. As a group, the Central Committee conducts the County Party's general business, approves its budget, coordinates Democratic campaign activity, endorses candidates for nonpartisan local offices and makes recommendations in initiative campaigns. They attend meetings about twice a month via Zoom where they take up these considerations.
Why is this important? The County Central Committee helps shape the Democratic landscape for all of San Diego County. This committee plays a role in developing election strategies at the local level. They influence the party’s platform and advocate for specific policy positions within the Democratic Party, creating a forum to shape party priorities. The decisions they make affect all local races from school boards and health districts, all the way to our County Board of Supervisors. These elected officials then go on to make decisions that impact your everyday life here in our beloved County. Overall, the Democratic Central Committee serves as the grassroots foundation of the Democratic Party, working to advance its goals, support candidates, and engage with communities at the local level.
