Club, Club Vote, Notice

Watch the February Membership Meeting

On February 17, the Santa Monica Democratic Club held our annual Executive Board election, chaired by Senator Ben Allen. We heard presentations from both our Legislative Committee and Diversity & Inclusion Committee. And we heard from Senator Ben Allen and SMC Boardmember Barry Snell. And those are just the highlights!
