Del Mar couple honored with Leadership Award

Tom and Claire McGreal with Crystal Crawford, former Mayor of Del Mar, at the Roosevelt Dinner.

The San Diego County Democratic Party honored Del Mar residents Claire and Tom McGreal with the Henry Auerbach Leadership Award at its annual Roosevelt Dinner on April 16.

The McGreals served as the Regional Field Organizers for the Obama Campaign in 2008, and have since served as the Community Organizers for Organizing For America for North County. Organizing For America promotes the legislative agenda of President Obama, and helps to elect supporters of that agenda.

In addition to working with the Democrtic Party in registering voters and getting out the vote during election cycles, OFA has formed policy teams on education, health policy and immigration to help voters better understand the issues, and to provide feedback to Washington DC.

Francine Busby presented the Leadership Award to the McGreals, and recited a long list of accomplishments the couple have made to Democratic causes in North County. Claire McGreal accepted the award on behalf of all the OFA volunteers in San Diego, acknowledging that the award recognizes all their hard work. More than 450 Democrats from throughout San Diego County attended the Roosevelt Dinner where Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado delivered the keynote address.

Others receiving awards included: Andrea Guerrero, the Making a Difference Award; Assembly Member Marty Block, the Legislator of the Year Award; and Jennifer Spencer, Candace Carroll and Southwestern College Education Assn, the Chair’s Awards.
