Club History and Executive Board

The La Cañada Flintridge Democratic Club was chartered in March 2005 by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party to serve registered Democrats in La Cañada Flintridge and the surrounding communities.

We updated our name in 2008 to the Cañada Crescenta Democratic Club to reflect its growing membership in both areas. Our mission is to to educate voters about the party’s core values, issues and candidates. Club members participate as a group in community events and work together to increase voter registration and turnout on election day.

Meetings are held on the 3rd Sunday of each month (except June and December) where speakers inform and engage in discussion. Click here for our Meeting/Events Calendar. Endorsements of candidates and initiatives are made at the behest of club members, given sufficient notice as required in the club’s bylaws. If you are seeking the endorsement of the club, please contact a member of the club for presentation.

It is a goal of the club to get a majority number of Democratic Party votes in our community. This will be accomplished through neighbor-to-neighbor voter outreach.

We welcome your participation in the Cañada Crescenta Democratic Club and invite you to become a member.
