Democrats Voting for Delegates for Assembly District 24 in California

On Saturday January 7, 2017, I went to Los Altos to vote for the delegates for District 24. When I came, though, I found out that since I moved from Sunnyvale to Santa Clara, I no longer live in District 24. I didn’t mind going though. I brought my camera and took photos of the voting and got to talk to friends and fellow Democrats. I want to do anything I can to support the Democratic Party.

I was surprised at how many people were waiting in line to vote. Many Democrats are energized to get involved after the results of November’s elections.

When I met someone I knew, I had to warn them that I am still recovering from a cold so that they wouldn’t hug me and possibly catch it. I had several conversations about our concerns about the upcoming Trump presidency, about the importance of Democrats winning local office and getting in touch in the grassroots level, and the necessity of a younger generation of Democrats to run for office. I always learn a lot from listening.

I wished my friends who were running to be delegates luck. Then I went home to share some chicken soup with my wife, who is also recovering from a cold.

About angelolopez

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Since my time in college, my goal has been to be a successful children’s book illustrator. I’ve illustrated 3 books: Two Moms the Zark and Me by Johnny Valentine in 1993; Night Travelers by Sue Hill in 1994; and Cherubic Children’s New Classic Story Book Volume 2 for Cherubic Press in 1998. I’ve painted murals for Lester Shields Elementary School in San Jose, the Berryessa branch of the San Jose Public Library, and Grace Community Church in Los Altos. I’ve had a few illustrations published in South Bay Accent Magazine and I will have an illustration published in the January/February issue of Tikkun magazine.
