Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club has new officers, but it had to be done on a Zoom meeting. The Club has been unable to have regular meetings since Covid-19 changed the world. They continue to wonder and debate when in person meetings can resume.

Charles White was elected to serve another term as president. Working with him will be Mari Goodman, vice-president; Kathy Kneer, secretary; and Tina Minton, treasurer. Trustees elected are Anita Pritchard, Carol Rush, and Dick Cavanaugh. Their new term began July 1.

The Club helps Democrats get elected at all levels of government. At this time, they are especially working to elect Kim Mangone in her race for 23rd Congressional District, a seat currently held by Kevin McCarthy.

They also try to educate, motivate and inspire people within our community to become politically active. A website to do this has been recently developed and may be accessed at

We need to bring good paying jobs to our district. This includes investing in our infrastructure and community. This is just one of the issues Kim Mangone is promoting as she campaigns to be elected to represent the 23nd US Congressional District. She spoke on a Zoom meeting of Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club recently.

Mangone told the Club, “I am a Democratic candidate running for Congress in California’s 23rd District because I believe we need a representative who will fight for the people in our district. My life experiences include being a USAF Veteran, an aircraft mechanic, a systems engineer and a single working mom. While working full time, I went to college and earned my bachelor’s degree in Professional Aeronautics. My time spent as a systems engineer has provided me with the skills needed to not only identify but to find solutions to the problems and challenges in our district.”

Kim faces formidable candidate Kevin McCarthy in November, but if enough Democrats vote in November, she can defeat the longtime incumbent. He has served in this position since 2007.

Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club usually does not have general meetings during July and August. They hope to gather at their annual summer picnic, but need to make this decision according to rules regarding group gatherings during the Covid crisis.

Dues for joining the club are now payable. They are $20 and may be sent to Tehachapi Democratic Club, P.O. Box 428, Tehachapi, CA 93581. The website for the club has more information and membership application forms. It may be accessed at
