La Jolla Democratic Club

September 2022

The LJDC Monthly Meeting
Thursday, September 8th, 2022 @ 7pm

Program: Political Propaganda in San Diego Elections
Speaker: Cynara Velazquez
Cynara’s Bio:  Originally from far northern California, I have lived in San Diego since 2004. When I moved to San Diego, I became an active member of our local party when I traveled to Arizona to do Spanish language outreach for John Kerry. I joined the fledgling GO Team in 2005 and, in 2006, I led Grassroots Organizing Team (“GO-Team”) and volunteer coordination for the Democratic Party at the north county office in Escondido. In 2008, I became the GO Team South Region Vice Chair.

In 2015, I formed the Alliance for Community Engagement, a nonprofit to increase civic engagement and voter awareness.

I will be presenting on my site,, which documents all of the mail sent and received around San Diego County during an election cycle. We will be focusing on the 2022 primary, what was sent, what was spent, and how this spending/sending influenced the results around the county.  Specifically, I would like to highlight a few key races and shady campaigns: the spending/sending in the Sheriff’s race, the spending/sending in the San Diego City District 2 race and the role of slate mailers (official and not so official), in affecting election results.
