Davis Club Members Attend Convention

Five members of the Davis Democratic Club recently attended the Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Club President Bill Ritter, Dave and Lea Rosenberg, Christine Totah and College Democrats President Cinthia Hamner-Portugal all attended the quadrennial convention.
A highlight for Davis residents watching the convention on television —aside from Assemblymember Marguerite Archie-Hudson doing the “Macarena” dance—was a speech to conventioneers by Hamner-Portugal discussing higher education issues. Specifically, Hamner-Portugal spoke about the importance of the availability of student loans and the opportunity for all Americans to have access to higher education.
As a consequence of the prime seating location of the California delegation, television viewers were privileged to many camera shots featuring our Davis delegates.

From the President

Dear Fellow Davis Democrats:
The months of August and September were highly productive for our efforts to re-elect Clinton/Gore, Vic Fazio and elect Helen Thomson. Beginning with our grand opening on a host, humid Sunday in August, the Davis Democratic Headquarters has been a center of many campaign activities. Our voter registration drive and precinct captain program is going well and building the foundation of our get out the vote drive. Our many club members and new volunteers have maintained consistent office hours selling merchandise, registering voters and educating the public about our issues and candidates. In addition, our Davis Headquarters and volunteers have been a huge asset to Vic Fazio’s and Helen Thomson’s campaigns by assembling one mailer after another for them.
As the campaign heats up this thirty days we need everyone’s help. If you haven’t yet come down to volunteer, please do so, as we can use your help to make Tuesday, November 5, 1996, a great day for Democrats!
                                          Bill Ritter
