The Democratic Club of Santa Maria Valley, under charter from the Santa Barbara County Democratic Central Committee, is committed to preserving and fostering the Democratic Party’s principles and it’s spirit of dedication in support of the rights, liberties and dreams of all citizens of American society, with equality and without exclusion, through education, voter registration and personal participation in the political process in all local, state and national political campaigns and elections for public office and political initiatives and referenda.
We stand for human rights and social justice. We believe in equal opportunity without the exclusion of any citizen or resident. We are committed to the rule of law and public election of governmental officeholders by Democratic process. We believe that the voting franchise gives us the power to effectuate change and ensure the human rights and social justice will not become subverted by an unjust government as the founding fathers of the Republic had envisioned. We encourage action and the fair sharing of responsibility for the improvements of our community and society as an integrated whole.
Democrats have a strong voice in the Santa Maria Valley. The Democratic Club of Santa Maria Valley (DCSMV) is chartered by the Santa Barbara County Democratic Central Committee (SBCDCC.) The DCSMV informs the voting public of the important issues that promote Santa Maria Valley as a family-friendly community. Our members are motivated to advance a progressive platform. The progressive voices are becoming more active and understood.
Democrats have a clear appreciation for equal rights, unions, public education, the environment, protecting voting rights, freedom of speech, and of course, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Providing reliable information and facts before going to the voting polls are some of the goals of the DCSMV.
When the leaders of today are spending taxpayer monies illegally to create fake news, our defense is to provide informed views. DCSMV organizes methods of bringing this information to our community and reaches out into the community to bring the voter back to the booth. Like-minded volunteers who work in the Democratic Headquarters and in the community are facilitating the DCSMV to accomplish its goals.
DCSMV members have become more active and energized. To learn about the Democratic Club, come to one of our regular monthly meetings the third Thursday of the month at the IHOP Restaurant, 202 S. Nicholson Ave. Santa Maria, CA 93454, (near U.S. 101 and East Main St.) at 7:00 pm Guest Speaker Session (dinner optional at 6:00 pm). Call the Democratic Headquarters for our open hours at 1(805) 349-2708.
