Nancy Skinner, our Assemblymember in the 15th AD, is termed out. Elizabeth Echols, Sam Kang, Andy Katz, and Tony Thurmond are running to replace her. The top two in the June 2014 primary will run-off in November 2014.
Since term limits have been modified, the winner in this election can be in the Assembly for 12 years. So this is a very important race in one of the most progressive districts in California.
According to the club bylaws, if you wish to vote at this meeting, you must be a member in good standing (paid up dues) by October 30. If your membership expires after October 30, you may renew up until the January 30 meeting or at the meeting.
