About Us

Our Purpose

The West Coast of the West Coast

The Coastside Democrats support candidates of the Democratic Party and uphold the principles of:

Honest and transparent government and elections
Equal and inclusive opportunity and justice for all Americans
Government benefiting all citizens, not just the wealthy
Full respect for our natural environment and international treaties
Public health and education, women’s rights and the welfare of seniors
Outreach to youth and all ethnic communities

We hold public meetings, register voters, make endorsements, and seek to educate and empower our members and the Public on important local, state, national and global issues. We hold our own events and co-sponsor events with Clubs.

Area Served

The Coastside Democrats serves the population living west of Skyline Blvd / Highway 35 and south of the city of Pacifica in San Mateo County (a.k.a. the Coastside). The Coastside has a population of about 25,000. It is separated from the rest of San Mateo County by a range of hills to our east and north. Although it is often considered a bedroom community serving businesses in Silicon Valley it is the main agricultural area of the County. The Coastside is a thriving tourist destination with many hotels, State Parks and Beaches and a bustling harbor at Princeton-by-the-Sea serving both commercial and recreational boaters.

Our area is contained within the 14th and 18th Congressional Districts, the 13th State Senatorial District and the 22nd and 24th State Assembly Districts and the 3rd County Supervisorial District.
