Our Club in Action
Come Join Us!
Our guest speaker at the February 3rd meeting was Ricardo Enriquez, founder of the Latino Organizing for Action (LOFA) group in North County San Diego. His personal objectives are to engage, educate, and motivate Latinos to participate in the political process and to hold politicos accountable to the Latino community. Since its creation less than two years ago, LOFA has registered approximately 1,800 new Latino voters.
Born in Texas, near the Mexican border, to a migrant seasonal farm-working family, he was his family’s first to earn a Bachelor of Science. Mr. Enriquez has worked with Cesar Chavez's United Farm Workers Movement as Chair of the Grape Boycott Committee in Madison, WI and was Director of Training for that organization’s Leadership, Education and Development Institute.
Democrats in bipartisan act of solidarity against vandalism at Reagan monument
While this year will be remembered for increasing political polarization and acrimony, two local groups have shown a spirit of bipartisanship that Washington could learn from.
In a demonstration of community solidarity, the Democratic Club of Southwest Riverside County and the Murrieta Temecula Republican Assembly each has given a check to Friends of Ronald Reagan Sports Park to assist in the restoration efforts to repair the Reagan monument that was vandalized in an arson attack at the end of summer.
The life size bronze statue, erected to commemorate the former President’s recognition of Temecula’s ‘Can Do’ Spirit and individual initiative in constructing the park without government assistance, was torched in the early morning hours of 20 September 2013. Tiles on the monument wall fell off and ground illuminating lights were scorched and had to be replaced. Temecula City Council responded promptly to restore the monument. No one has yet been apprehended for the attack.
Democratic Club President, Suji Fox, presented the check to Perry Peters, President of Friends of Ronald Reagan Sports Park, at the monument. “Such senseless acts serve no purpose and further no cause. The Democratic Club unreservedly condemns this wanton act of vandalism on the monument to former President Reagan. This park, serving so many people in such diverse ways, is a perfect example of how working together with common purpose and cooperation revitalizes our communities,” said Fox.
The check will go towards the funds already raised to reimburse the City Council at a special ceremony being held at the Monument on Monday, 25th November at 4:00PM. Reflecting on the community support, Peters said, "I am delighted to see an affirmation of this statement by a donation from the Democratic Club of Southwest Riverside County. We also received a donation from the Murrieta Temecula Republican Assembly. The proliferation of individual initiative in our young people is not a political objective -- it is all-American.”
Gail Ferrell, past DCSRC President and current Treasurer, receives the "Democratic Club of SW Riverside County's 2013 Volunteer of the Year Award" at the Bosworth Brunch - the Riverside County Democratic Partiy fundraiser held at Monongo on Sunday, November 10th.
Several members of the Democratic Club of Southwest Riverside County have formed a committee to write resolutions on issues of importance to our communities and nation. A resolution makes known to our elected officials as well as to fellow citizens what our Club's stance is on particular issues and sets the goal of having the requests met by governing officials.
