Dear APDC Members,
We are excited and humbled to announce that we received unanimous approval yesterday night from the SF Democratic Party to change our name to the Edwin M. Lee API Democratic Club!
Years before he was ever a member of Mayor’s office, Room 200, he was a member of the Asian Pacific Democratic Club. We have always been proud and honored to have him as a member of our club. When he was Mayor, APDC stood by him, supporting his work and leadership.
Almost all of our board members – spanning three generations – have worked alongside Mayor Lee. Whether it was volunteering on Democratic campaigns, working on his first Mayoral campaign, or serving with him in City Hall, we saw Mayor Lee’s endless generosity and dedication firsthand.
Our club’s mission will be to carry on Mayor Ed Lee’s legacy: to support API leaders, engage the API community in civic affairs, and carry on Mayor Lee’s spirit by leading with compassion, decency, and kindness.
