DEMS DELIVER: Newly Blue Board of Supervisors delivering long-awaited change

April 22, 2021News Feed

Among the many victories throughout the county that San Diego Democrats celebrated last November, one stands out for its impact and significance: winning a majority on the County Board of Supervisors for the first time ever. That was the culmination of a ten-year effort to create and implement term limits to oust incumbent Republicans, elect the first Democrat in 2018, and run a program to flip District 1 in the Primary Election and District 3 in the General Election. Thanks to the hard work of countless volunteers, donors, activists, and campaign staff around the county, last year we elected Supervisor Nora Vargas in District 1 and Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer in District 3.

2020 General Election Victories

December 11, 2020News Feed

With Joe Biden having decisively won the presidential race, San Diego County Democrats can already celebrate some major local wins. With all ballots having been counted, here are some of our key victories after a long and challenging campaign year:

  • When the County Board of Supervisors new term begins in January, Democrats will hold a majority for the first time ever, thanks to the election of Terra Lawson-Remer and Nora Vargas (who will be the first Latina to serve on the board).
  • In another historic win, Todd Gloria is the first person of color and first LGBTQ person elected Mayor of San Diego, and only the second Democrat elected to the position in more than 30 years. San Diego will no longer be the only big city in the U.S. with a Republican mayor. 
  • A sweep of all the San Diego City Council races on the ballot -- including seats flipped by Marni von Wilpert and Raul Campillo -- means that 8 out of 9 councilmembers in California's second-largest city will be Democrats.
