Our whole family came out on Sunday as volunteers to support my daughter Jessica Dickinson Goodman who was the Convener (with Steve Preminger) for the US Congressional District 19 Democratic Caucus for Hillary Clinton. The Caucus voted for who may go to the Democratic National Convention (25-28 July 2016, in Philadelphia) to cast a vote for Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic Presidential Candidate. The number of elected Delegates who actually go to the convention will be based on the result of the 7 June Presidential Primary election in California.
I spent most of the time managing the Ballot Box (doing my part to be sure this was a free and fair election). It was a long day but fun to spend time with so many enthusiastic supporters of Secretary Clinton – especially Larissa Shapiro (my sister TechWomen Mentor) and her daughter Rose, who was our speech timer. There were many more female candidates for Delegate than male – everyone wanted to be there to vote for the first woman to be US President!
