Democratic candidates to speak at picnic, July 22

Two Democrats have declared their intention to run for Congress and will be featured speakers at the annual Tehachapi Mountain Democratic Club picnic.

Marisa Wood, who ran against Kevin McCarthy in the last election, wants to try again to defeat him. John Burrows, a young man from Ridgecrest has the same goal. They will talk about their individual background and ability to effectively represent California Congressional District 23.

The picnic will be held in Philip Marx Central Park at Green and E streets on Saturday, July 22, from 3 to 7 p.m. There will be good food, games, music and interesting people to meet. All Democrats, or those wanting to register as Democrats, are invited to attend. Members and guests should bring a food dish to share, and their own chair, or blanket to sit upon.
