The Simi Valley / Moorpark Democratic Club will be holding a gun safety discussion. I am impressed with the panel they have put together. Simi Valley School Board candidate Arleigh Kidd, Simi Valley City Council Member Mike Judge, and members of the police department will be there.
I often disagree with Mike Judge. He is too quick to repost conspiracy theories on Facebook. That said I am very impressed he is willing to speak at this meeting. He is a supporter of the local Tea Party and supports the NRA. Showing up to discuss gun safety shows he is willing to represent all of us in Simi Valley.
The local school district has been trying to address concerns of families. I am glad School Board Member Arleigh Kidd will be there. I supported him when he ran for school board. I look forward to hearing what he has to share. Arleigh Kidd is a former teacher.
Both Arleigh Kidd and Mike Judge served in our military. I am thankful for their service.
We need to find common ground to reduce violence.

The Simi Valley / Moorpark Democratic Club is going to being discussing the plans for Simi Valley to have three Wal-Marts and the change in the library. The new Wal-Marts will be smaller stores that sell groceries.
The Simi Valley/Moorpark Democratic Club will discuss the City Council's decision regarding Wal-Mart and privatization of the library, 7pm, Wednesday, August 15 at the Simi Valley Library community room, 2969 Tapo Canyon Road.
With their interest in city issues and one of their club members running for city council I am wondering if they plan to make a big effort to elect someone to the city council. There is expected to be a crowded field. A dedicated activist group could make the difference and elect someone.
The Simi Valley/Moorpark Democratic Club will discuss the health care mandate upheld by the Supreme Court, 7pm, Wednesday, July l8 at the Simi Valley Library community room,
2969 Tapo Canyon Rd.

Can a local Democrat post more on the book exchange? That sounds interesting. A liberal friend of mine was given a Glenn Beck book for Christmas...
Fiona Ma is popular with the grassroots of the Democratic Party. Her Facebook updates are often very amusing.

UPDATE: Ventura County Democratic Party Chair Richard Carter expects both Sojka and Huber to attend.
Add this to the list of candidate events happening long after voters receive and can send back their absentee ballots:
The Simi Valley/Moorpark Democratic club is sponsoring a political forum of local, state and national candidates 7pm, Wednesday, October 20 at the Simi Valley Library community room, 2969 Tapo Canyon Road.
The meeting is open to the public and includes refreshment. Members and guests are encouraged to bring warm winter clothing to be donated to the Samaritan center.
For more information, please call 805-210-6061.
No word yet on what candidates will be there. Republican Bob Huber has campaigned at a Simi Valley Democrats Club Meeting but I don't think Republican Steve Sojka has yet in his race for mayor. With no Democrat in the race it will be interesting to see who makes the stronger appeal to local Democrats.
The Simi Valley / Moorpark Democratic Club is opening an office next week
The Democratic headquarters will open Tuesday, September 28 at noon, at 2904 Cochran Street.
For more information, please call 805-210-6061 or 805-583-1770. Refreshments will be available.
They haven't updated their website in a long time but here is a link:
Democrats need help setting up the office over the next few days. They said to contact them if you can help this weekend. They have invited the press and the Chamber of Commerce to attend their grand opening.
Some local progressives are also planning rallies to protest against George W. Bush when he comes to Simi Valley to speak at the Reagan Library. Think local Tea Party people will rally to support Bush?
The Simi Valley Landfill has plans to expand how much trash they take and the size of their landfill. The Simi Valley Democratic Club is going to be discussing the landfill expansion again. If you want to know more about the expansion I'd suggest going to the meeting AND going to the company's website.
I'd also suggest trying to get any candidate that is running to be specific about what their views are on the expansion. The landfill has extensively worked with many local charities. They have earned goodwill with numerous politicians that don't want to alienate voters or WM. The City Council doesn't have a direct vote on the subject but they do have influence in letting WM and the county under what conditions they support expanding the landfill.
I asked candidate for city council Mike Judge the following question:
The landfill wants to expand their business. Would you be more likely to support expanding the landfill if they added a shooting range open to police officers?
I do not think the Range if there is to be one should be given with any pre-conditions. I do think the Landfill is the 2ton gorilla in the room this election everyone is trying to ignore especially the incumbents. Good, Bad or indifferent my Opinion would be just that an opinion because right now the City will not have a say in what happens. But I believe our City should have a say and the expansion should be predicated on certain favorable conditions to the City of Simi Valley. This all goes back to one of the main premises of my Candidacy the lack of credible leadership among the incumbents and our need now more than ever for that leadership.
Here are the details of the club meeting to discuss the expansion:
The Simi Valley/Moorpark Democratic club has scheduled a meeting 7pm, Wednesday, August l8 to discuss the proposed expansion of the landfill at the Simi Valley Library community room, 2969 Tapo Canyon Road.
Guest speaker is Lou Pandolfi, member of the Simi Valley Landfill Expansion Task Force.
