A Word On Endorsements from SDCGO's Executive Director
Members and future members,
Every season is election season, and the 2018 primary is now less than a year away. I am asked frequently about SDCGO's endorsements so I want to give you all the details.
- SDCGO endorses only county- and city-level candidates. We do not endorse state or federal candidates because other organizations do a great job of it, and we do not want to duplicate efforts.
- SDCGO has not endorsed anyone for the 2018 elections yet. We are continuing to vet and research in preparation for our Board meeting in January where we will vote on endorsements.
- Our criteria for endorsing is based on:
1. The candidate's stance on the Second Amendment and Second Amendment issues
2. The viability of the candidate
3. The candidate's character
- If you have a favorite candidate, please work hard to make sure SDCGO knows about him/her, that they have a deep appreciation for the Second Amendment, and that they have the fundraising and infrastructure to be a viable candidate.
- Endorsed or not, SDCGO will continue to reward good behavior by candidates/elected and shine a bright light on bad behavior.
Besides our monthly meetings, the best place for information on elected City Council members who are running for office is on our website here: http://sandiegocountygunowners.com/citycouncil/

Help Needed - Gold Star Valor Adventures
Valor Adventures is an unforgettable one-day event that is run entirely by veterans. It is a chance for Gold Star families (families that have lost a family member in combat) to get to experience something very few get to participate in--an entire day of interactive discovery and adventure with veterans! Each Gold Star family/child (ages 8-18) will be paired with their very own veteran guide for a day of adventure. They will utilize these veterans' military skillsets for a truly unique experience--integrating land navigation courses, treasure hunts, excavating, nature discovery, code detection, and problem solving throughout the day. Each group will encounter different challenges, obstacles, and puzzles that they will need to solve before they reach their final destination!
Active Valor hopes to give the children an experience that they will be able to take with them for the rest of their lives. Sharing this time with men and women who have honorably served our country like the loved ones they have lost provides such an impactful experience for both the families and the veterans. They get to build a friendship and bond that will hopefully continue on after the event. This day is an invaluable experience, offering the opportunity to be an impact in a community that has paid the ultimate sacrifice. We can't wait to share this experience with you all!
