Thank you for electing me to be the 2018-2019 Chairwoman of the Riverside County Young Democrats. I am honored to have your support and trust, and I look forward to seeing all of the great accomplishments we will achieve this year!
I want to thank Francisco for his steadfast dedication to the RCYD this past year. Under his leadership, we hosted the 1st Annual Cesar Chavez March, started our franchise model with regional commissioners to raise more young Democrats to leadership roles, and proudly established a membership base in the Desert; a place we previously were not able to touch. I also want to thank Hakan and Mayra Jackson for serving as our Treasurer and Secretary, respectively. Their hard work and dedication enabled our club to thrive and rise to new heights. Further, I am grateful for the work of our previous executive board and look forward to what our club will achieve over the course of the next 12 months.
Democratic clubs across the country are reacting to the myriad of shameful policies being enacted by local, state, and national administrations. With today’s political climate, though, reacting is not enough. Riverside County Young Democrats must be PROACTIVE. We will do this by:
Aggressively Increasing Membership: As the 4th largest county in the State of California, I want our club to reflect that in numbers. It is my goal to regularly reach out to registered Democrats 35 and under with updates from our club. This way we can establish communication and an opportunity for us to recruit membership. I want us to be innovative in how we approach our membership outreach.
Lastly, I want to take this time to introduce our Executive Board members!
We can only achieve this goal together! Please take this time to renew your commitment to RCYD and renew your membership. Our membership dues are $25 for regular members and $10 for students. For those who are over the age of 35, we offer an honorary membership for $25! If you are not a member, but would like to be, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The midterms are just around the bend. We look forward to mobilizing with you, fellow Young Democrats. Hate is relentless, but so are we. Again, thank you for electing me to be your Chairwoman in such critical times. Now, let us get back to work!
