721 Retirees Played Active Role at CDP Convention

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I’m proud to report on the California Democratic Party convention held in San Francisco from May 31 to June 2, 2019. It was truly uplifting and full of excitement.

We had 14 presidential candidates who attended. They were U.S. Senators Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren; U.S. Representatives Tulsi Gabbard and Eric Swalwell; former U.S. Representatives John Delaney and Beto O’Rourke; Governor Jay Inslee, former Governor John Hickenlooper, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and the Honorable Julian Castro.

Each candidate had their own unique messages, but what stood out was that “Democrats are the party for the people.”

Major issues discussed were affordable health care, Social Security, education, and growing the economy. Democrats are proud to be the party that created Social Members of SEIU 721 Retirees Committee welcome Rusty Hicks, the chair of the California Democratic Party.
