6:45 Dinner ($26)
Crow Canyon Country Club
711 Silver Lake Drive, Danville
Please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org Joan Buchanan
The San Ramon Valley Democratic Club is pleased to welcome our esteemed, former Assemblymember Joan Buchanan to update us on the Restore the Delta’s efforts to stop Governor Brown’s plan to build huge tunnels under the Delta in order to increase the amount of water siphoned from the Delta and directed to the Central Valley and southern California. She has spoken at our club several times in the past, and we are amazed at her excellent knowledge about California water issues. We are looking forward to hearing her speak about the water issues of the Delta.
Joan passion is public education and the welfare of children. She began her advocacy in her children’s schools and community, serving in PTA, on the board of the Child Care Alliance, and coaching youth sports.
In 1990 Joan was elected to the San Ramon Valley Unified District School board where she served for 18-years including four terms as president. She supported the adoption of new curriculum and program initiatives that improved student outcomes as well as the expansion and renovation of facilities. She advocated to bring childcare facilities to all elementary schools and to ensure special needs students’ interests were included in all planning decisions. Using skills honed in the private sector, Joan also understood the need for fiscal accountability, including the importance of pre-funding post-retirement benefits and the establishment reasonable reserves.
Joan currently serves on the board of Restore the Delta, working to prevent the construction of the two – 40 foot wide tunnels to divert water to Southern California, and she is enjoying time with her five children and seven grandchildren.
Please join us at 6:15 pm to talk about the latest political news or to just socialize and have fun.
