October 2018 Dinner Meeting
Our monthly dinner meetings give Democrats and Progressive individuals a place to talk politics. You don't need to be a policy expert just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk politics. We typically have a speaker each month and our programs are always FREE. There is an optional full dinner available for the nominal fee of $15 ($20 for non-members). The dinner is always cooked on site and includes appetizers, beverage, side dish, and dessert.

State Senator Mike McGuire
For the past three years Senator Mike McGuire’s District 2 has been hammered by one major wild fire after another. Each time, the Senator has worked to ascertain the affected community’s needs and worked tirelessly to try to meet them by working with the Press Democrat and the Redwood Credit Union to provide cash or gift cards to those who lost their homes and businesses. In addition, he sponsored or co-sponsored legislation related to fire recovery including money to make repairs and fire safety. Senator McGuire will update us on important issues being addressed in Sacramento.
Senator McGuire sponsored, and the governor signed, the “Every Vote Counts” bill allowing voters to fix mismatched signatures, so their votes will now count. There is landmark legislation that seeks to turn the crumbling 300-mile North Coast railroad line into the Great Redwood Trail and
that addresses the NCRA debt and liability.
