BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Kern County Democratic Party celebrated the opening of its new headquarters in Downtown Bakersfield on Friday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and attendance by civil rights leader Dolores Huerta and Assemblyman Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield).
“After going nearly four years without an office, I am extremely excited that the Kern Democratic Party will finally have a place to call home,” Chairman Christian Romo said in a news release. “This space will allow us to grow our outreach to local Democrats and ensure that we build the infrastructure we need to go into the next election cycle well equipped to win some of those most critical seats in the nation.”
Others in attendance included state Controller Betty Yee and California Democratic Party Chairman Rusty Hicks.
The new headquarters is located at 330 H St.
