On Thursday, June 27th, the Windsor Democratic Club will host a debate watch party for the second night of the first set of debates among Democratic presidential candidates. Among the ten candidates participating on the 27th will be Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg. (The other six are Michael Bennet, Kirsten Gillibrand, John Hickenlooper, Eric Swalwell, Marianne Williamson, and Andrew Yang.)
The event will be at the Windsor Round Table Pizza restaurant, as usual, but will start at 6 p.m., when the debate begins. It’s free and open to everyone, and pizza and drinks will be served.
Part of our debate-watching party will be a panel of local political folks, who will participate in an after-debate discussion. That discussion will begin around 8 p.m., and end around 9 p.m. The panel consists of (alphabetically):
* Esther Lemus, Councilmember, Town of Windsor, and a former member of the Board of the Windsor Unified School District
* Jason Liles, a former chief of staff for State Senator Mike McGuire, as well as a former Healdsburg City Council member
* Alan Ramey, President, Wine Country Young Democrats, and chair of the Fundraising committee of the Sonoma County Democratic Party
The format for the panel involves answering (written) questions from the audience, as well as general thoughts and comments that panel members want to share.
