Cathedral City, Calif., Sept. 6, 2019 – Democrats of the Desert (DOD), the Valley’s largest Democratic club, endorsed three candidates for Palm Springs City Council at their August Membership Meeting.:
District 1, Grace Garner | District 2, Dennis Woods
District 3, Geoffrey Kors
“Democrats of the Desert went through a three-step process as we considered candidates for the Palm Springs City Council,” said Dori Smith, president. “DOD participated with Desert Stonewall Democrats in a questionnaire and interview process with the candidates. Our committee considered several factors including qualifications, plans for the City, and diversity. District elections are new to the City, and it is gratifying to see numerous dedicated and qualified residents step up to run for office.”
In late June, three DOD representatives attended the candidate interviews, organized by Desert Stonewall. The committee members were unanimous in their recommendation to the DOD board of directors. Next, the board of directors voted on the committee’s recommendations, approving them; and, finally, club members voted on the recommendations at its regular monthly meeting on Aug. 24, 2019. A majority of DOD members in attendance voted to endorse Garner, Kors and Woods.
DOD has invited all Palm Springs City Council candidates to speak at its next meeting. The meeting details: 2 p.m., Sat., Sept. 28, at Date Palm Country Club clubhouse, 36200 Date Palm Drive, Cathedral City.
