WELCOME

The Democratic Club of Sunnyvale is an active and welcoming group that promotes progressive, Democratic values and positions. We provide a welcoming group for those in the Sunnyvale, CA, area to meet and promote Democratic causes. Join us to meet other people in this major Silicon Valley city where you can make the most use of your Democratic ideas and energy!


February Meeting: Alternative Electoral Systems

Do you know what "instant runoff voting" and "proportional representation" are? At our next club meeting, Steve Chessin will describe alternative electoral systems to the plurality-based "numbered seat" system Sunnyvale currently uses, and will explain how they might result in a more truly representative city council.


Also, at our next meeting, we will be collecting items needed at the Sunnyvale homeless shelter:

Towels
Flip flop shower shoes (available at the dollar store)
Women's under garments and feminine hygiene supplies (pads)
Socks for men, women and children
De-caffeinated tea, lemons/oranges, honey, hot chocolate packets
Twin size sheets and blankets
Rain ponchos
Carrying bags with handles (including clean gym bags, day packs, shopping bags and tote bags)
Reading glasses
Books for their mini library
February 20th   * 2 to 4 pm   *    Fairbrae Swim Club   *    696 Sheraton Avenue  *   Sunnyvale CA 94087
