It is with sincere regret that we announce that Westchester-Playa Democratic Club President, Robert Schurtz, has tendered his resignation from the Westchester-Playa Democratic Club’s Board of Directors. Robert has been an instrumental force in shaping our club in the previous months and in setting up the foundations for our WPDC committees. We thank Robert for his countless hours of selfless dedication to the democratic party, his passion for our shared progressive values, and leadership for our club.

Following the ratification vote, join us for what is sure to be a most exciting, incredibly informative and engaging meeting on a divisive issue within the Democratic Party and our nation - the Trans Pacific Partnership.
