The Club was founded in 2004 by eight residents with the primary goal of electing Democratic candidates. Since then, the Club has become a major influence in seeing that over 90%of eligible Oakmonters turn out to vote — a majority of them Democratic.
We encourage Oakmonters to participate in telephone banks, visits to elected officials and other grass roots efforts. Our regular meetings bring to Oakmont audiences knowledgeable political and media figures. Members are notified by e-mail of meeting dates and topics. The ODC has brought many speakers to Oakmont: political aspirants; legislative representatives; professors from Sonoma State and other educational institutions; leaders of environmental and civic groups; and community organizers.
