Filipino Fundraiser – Thank you!!

We were able to raise $500 and collected over 50 pounds of clothes that was donated to the cause. Thank you to everyone that participated in our fundraiser, especially those who were able to make a donation. It was great to see everyone support our club as well as those who are in need.

Solano Election Update!

VallejoWinnersCongratulations to Pippen Dew, Rozanna Verder-Aliga, and Jess Malgapo for being elected to Vallejo’s City Council. We were excited to endorse and support these candidates in this election and we are confident that Vallejo will greatly benefit under their joint leadership. It was amazing to be included in their canvassing efforts and we look forward to getting involved in future elections.

Additionally, Katy Meissner won Vallejo’s remaining council seat and Riitta DeAnda with John Dickerson won seats on the Travis School Board. We congratulate the three of them and look forward to their contributions to Solano County. Also, Measure E, an initiative that moved Vallejo elections to an even year election cycle was approved by Vallejo’s voters.

Again, congratulations to our endorsed City Council members and thank you to all of the Young Democrats who got involved in this year’s election.
