Upcoming Georgia, ADEM, & Milk Board Elections

If Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are both elected to the U.S. Senate from Georgia on January 5th, perhaps some of the damage done to this country can be repaired.
Mark your calendars for our December General Membership Meeting to be held Tuesday, December 15th at 7pm on Zoom.

Also, please remember that we will not hold a PAC Meeting on Tuesday, December 8th.

Here is our December General Membership Meeting agenda:

1) Updates from our PAC, an update on our 2020 Holigay Party, and an update on our community outreach priorities for 2021. (Please take our quick community outreach survey here.)

2) A discussion and official endorsement vote for ADEM candidates running in AD 17 and AD 19. If you are a candidate who would like to speak at our meeting, please email us at president@milkclub.org so that we can add you to our ballot and our speaking schedule. Candidates will likely be given a couple of minutes each to speak about themselves. First come, first serve.

3) A brief discussion and vote on officially endorsing Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff for the two runoff U.S. Senate seats in Georgia and what the Club can do to help them win if we endorse them.

4) Our General Meeting marks the beginning of our 2021 election process for the Milk Club Executive Board. If you are interested in running for any of our Club’s E-Board seats, or would like to nominate someone to run, please plan on attending. Potential 2021 candidates are welcome to receive nominations, or nominate themselves, and give brief speeches in favor of their candidacies. (You can learn more about all of the E-Board positions at the bottom of the page of our website here.)

5) New Business.

Also, please renew your Milk Club Membership today at milkclub.org/join for 2021. All Memberships expire in at the conclusion of our February 2021 General Membership Meeting, and only full-fledged voting Members can elect next year’s Executive Board at the January General Meeting.

Please register here to vote in the upcoming ADEM elections. It is quick, easy, and critical to ensure progressive Democratic endorsements in the near future.
Article VI of the California Democratic Party Bylaws provides that Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEMS) be held in each of the 80 California Assembly Districts in January of each odd-numbered year to elect seven self-identified female Democratic candidates and seven other than self-identified female Democratic candidates to be Assembly District Delegates to represent the Assembly District in which they live.

These elections are open to all California Democrats. Delegates are responsible for planning and attending informational meetings throughout their respective regions and working with other delegates across California on statewide matters.

It is critical that all of us in the Milk Club register to vote and vote for progressive Democratic Delegates in Assembly Districts 17 and 19 to ensure that we endorse truly progressive state-level and federal representatives and ballot measures in 2022, worthy of Harvey Milk’s legacy. Remember, these delegates could be pivotal if/when there are open seats in Congress or the State Assembly on the horizon

In order to register to vote in the 2021 ADEM elections, click here. The deadline to register to vote and receive a mail ballot is January 11th, 2021.

In order to apply as a candidate, register here. The deadline to apply is December 15th of this year, the same day as our December General Membership Meeting.

And please consider signing this petition holding the California Democratic Party to their commitment and allow Dreamers to run for ADEM.

Since everyone is in lockdown, you might as well make time for all of our Club’s December events. It’s not as if you have anything else better to do!
