Politics 101: An Informal Discussion
June 16, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Do you have lingering questions about how our local government works? Who’s elected to what and for how long? If so, join an informal discussion hosted by UDC President Justin Jones to answer your questions.
Some topics we’ll cover:
- How many Supervisors are there? What do they do? How long are their terms? Who’s up for election?
- Supervisor/Mayor relationship.
- Creating new legislation: Supervisors vs. through the ballot process.
- What’s the deal with State Senate, US Senate, CA Assembly, and the US House of Reps?
- How often are elections and how long are the terms?
- Who are our current elected officials?
- What is the Democratic County Central Committee (DCCC) and what is their function?
We aim to keep the event conversational so everyone can have their questions answered; this is not a formal presentation. In order to do so, we are limiting the number of attendees.
To attend, please RSVP to Justin Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org for the event address.
