Puerto Vallarta News: Politics Abroad
Democrats Abroad in Puerto Vallarta
Democrats from the United States stick together, no matter how far from home they have flung themselves. In Puerto Vallarta, they meet monthly and have common goals. They sponsor educational programs, special events, and have an online newsletter. They keep abreast of political issues and developments, and make it their own responsibility to see that everyone, regardless of affiliation, is informed. They lobby the White House, Congress and their own state governments from whence they came when they moved to Puerto Vallarta, on issues that will affect US citizens living abroad, including national and international concerns. They take on the duty of motivating and registering voters, providing absentee ballot assistance and they organize any primary voting for those living abroad. Democrats Abroad in Puerto Vallarta is a non-profit organization.
Democrats Abroad in Puerto Vallarta elect and send a voting delegation to the Democratic Convention, which will be held next year at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on July 13–16, 2020. Joe Solmonese, former President of the Human Rights Campaign, was named convention CEO in March of 2019. It should be a very interesting convention, leading into the 2020 elections.
Democrats Abroad in Puerto Vallarta also elect eight members to the Democratic National Committee, which is the Democratic Party’s governing body in Washington, DC.
The Democrats Abroad in Puerto Vallarta Costa Banderas Chapter of Mexico was originally organized in November 2007, in anticipation of the election of President Barack Obama. They now boast over two hundred members, consisting mostly of US citizens who reside in Puerto Vallarta, as well as communities to the north in the state of Nayarit.
For the purpose of this present blog, we are posting their next meeting, which is Wednesday, September 18, 2019, at the new location of La Dolce Vita Bistro on Basilio Badillio. La Dolce Vita serves the same Italian menu as their original location, which is located on the Malecón. The meeting will be held from 5 – 7 PM and the restaurant will offer 2-for-1 margaritas and daiquiris for $70 pesos. There will also be beer and wine available, plus a full bar. La Dolce Vita Bistro has great pizza, which we encourage attendees to taste following the meeting.
All are welcome. For more information or to join the Democrats Abroad in Puerto Vallarta Costa Banderas Chapter of Mexico visit cb.democratsabroad.
