    SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF. — The San Bernardino Democratic Luncheon Club swore in its 2024 leadership team on Saturday, February 24, at the San Bernardino Elks Lodge. Six officers and three trustees took the oath of office.

    Founded in 1993, the Democratic Luncheon Club of San Bernardino (DLCSB) is the Inland Empire’s largest and most active Democratic club. Over a hundred members and guests attended the affair, which featured comments from several candidates for local and statewide offices.

    Following the invocation by Stephanie Liggins, the Pledge of Allegiance led by San Bernardino Valley College professor Dr. Ed Millican, the singing of The National Anthem led by James M. Smith and incoming President Timothy Prince’s welcome, Trustee Leticia Chavez introduced the distinguished guests and then lunch was served.

    Six officers and three trustees comprise the leadership of the Club each year. Officers serve for one year and trustees for three. The club’s 2024 officers are Timothy Prince, President; Roxanne Rios, First Vice President, Programs; Mark Alvarez, Second Vice President, Membership; John Fisher, Secretary; Ladd Seekins, Treasurer; and Gil Navarro, Parliamentarian.

    Incumbent Trustees Leticia Garcia and David Raley welcomed Christian Shaughnessy, the newly elected Trustee. Shaughnessy is a candidate for San Bernardino City Council, Ward 3, the southernmost city ward.  Shaughnessy also serves as President of the Young Democrats of San Bernardino.

    Among the politicians who spoke, San Bernardino Sixth Ward Council Member Kimberly Calvin gave an especially stirring acceptance speech upon receiving a special plaque recognizing her “unfailing service & support of the Democratic Party.” Calvin teared up as she recounted the challenges she has had to surmount to move San Bernardino forward.

    “I am truly honored to have been named Democrat of the Year by the Democratic Luncheon Club of San Bernardino… In my role as Councilmember of San Bernardino’s Ward 6, I will continue to work for the betterment of all community members and the voice for those who consider themselves to be voiceless, as that is the Democratic way!”

    After all the speeches and recognitions, “We had over two dozen prizes plus the 50/50 opportunity drawing, with David Raley and Carol Robb as the biggest winners who required a cart for their haul… All the attendees felt good about their Party’s chances for success in the upcoming March 5th primary,” said Prince.
