These are the candidates endorsed by the 34th District Democrats as of September 14, 2022.
At our monthly meetings, the members of the 34th hold candidate forums and panels on current issues facing our community. As election time nears we deliberate and make informed choices as to which candidates and ballot measures should receive our endorsement and contributions.
Our meetings are public and we welcome you to join us every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM. Currently all meetings are held virtually via Zoom. View our meetings on Youtube.
