(Democrats of Hemet-San Jacinto)

Thursday, January 2, the Democrats of Hemet-San Jacinto held their first monthly meeting of 2020. The meeting was called to order by Dick Gale, columnist for The Hemet-San Jacinto Chronicle and head of the Democrats of Hemet-San Jacinto.

In attendance were members and attorneys Scott Rudibaugh and Kathy Bloom-Rudibaugh and members James Crawford, Mitzi Carver, Judy Rice, Kimara Pyatt and attorney and board member DeniAntionette “Deni” Mazingo, candidate for District 42nd State Assembly seat.

In the first order of business, Deni Mazingo brought up the fact that, yet again, the California DMV has created confusion and problems by mis-registering voters, assigning both Republicans and Democrats to the “NPP” (No Particular Party) voter rolls. This is at least the second time that this type of dangerous voter registration problem has happened. For more on this topic, please see our article titled, “Illegal Motor-Voter Toter” elsewhere in this issue.  That article outlines the many ongoing Motor-Voter problems.

Mazingo, who officially filed in December, held a fund-raiser at the Four Seasons in Beaumont on January 9, and will hold her official campaign kick-off on Thursday, January 23 at the 849 Club in Palm Springs at 6:30. Mazingo has north of $50, 000 in a campaign war-chest for the election pitting her against Andrew Kotyuk and current office-holder Chad Mayes. In a controversial move, Mayes switched his allegiance from the Republican Party to the newly designated No Particular Party or “NPP.” Mazingo states that she, “…would never leave my party, because my party will never leave me…” For more information on her campaign, voters are urged to visit or her Facebook page, DeniforAssembly.

Next attorney and board member Scott Rudibaugh mentioned the Figgins Scholarship Golf Tournament which will be held on January 20 at the Golden Era Golf Course from 10:45am to 4:30pm. Head of the organization, Dick Gale reminds all interested in donating that all funds go to fund the Figgins Scholarship, and that all golfers are called to join in, and further reminds all that party affiliation is not an issue as this scholarship is open to all.

Next James Crawford mentioned a Town Hall event being held on January 15 at Valle Vista Elementary School. It will start at 6:30 p.m. and end at approximately 8:30 p.m. Candidates currently scheduled to speak are Elizabeth Lavertu, Liam O’Mara, Edison Gomez-Krauss, and possibly Deni Mazingo.

For further information on scholarship, the golf outing, Deni Mazingo’s campaign or the Town Hall event, call The Democrats of Hemet-San Jacinto at (951) 402-3194 or visit the headquarters at 530-1/2 E. Florida Avenue, Hemet
