As a service to our members and to the community, the Coastside Democratic Club surveys candidates on their views about issues of interest to the Coastside. We are publishing those responses here.


We invite all interested to attend our Endorsement Meeting on September 5th at 7 pm, at the home of Kathy and Rich Klein, 770 San Carlos Ave., El Granada. You will have a chance to ask candidates questions and hear their opinions.

Below we have posted the questionnaires of our endorsed candidates. Questionnaires for others may still appear in some searches.
