November 3 Election Results

Democratic Websites

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

Gertrude Jekyll, C. Edwina Todd and Mary Pickford

Women from history were invited to talk about themselves at the March meeting of Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club. The program was planned in recognition of March as Women’s History Month. The women were Gertrude Jekyll, Mary Pickford, and Captain C. Edwina Todd.

Gertrude Jekyll, portrayed by Joanne Beckett, was a British horticulturist, garden designer, writer, and artist. Mary Pickford, portrayed by Andrea Hicks, was a famous motion picture actress and producer in the early 1900’s. Captain C. Edwina Todd, portrayed by Connie Brehm, was a Navy nurse who described her harrowing experiences in the Philippines during World War II.

The three women represented American Association of University Women. Nearly 30 years ago, Carol Coleman established a group within AAUW called Storytellers. After a few years they extended their activities to promote women’s history and have been making presentations to schools and community organizations for many years.

Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club meets the first Thursday of each month at Big Papa’s Steakhouse. Information about the Club is on the website
