Hello and thank you for visiting my site.
I’m a union rep, public school teacher, and new parent who started volunteering with the San Francisco democratic party since I was 14. Since then I have worked professionally at the state, local, and national level of the Party. In 2006, after serving as the executive director of the SF Democratic Party, I ran for the DCCC and won. I was the youngest member then and I still am the youngest member of the DCCC. How’s someone that young get eleted? Hard work. I’m known as a worker-bee. I’m always there to volunteer for campaigns. I sit on (or have sat on) my neighborhood association board, the city’s Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee, and the boards of several democratic clubs including the Irish-American, Richmond District, Young Democrats, Democracy Action, and the District Five democratic clubs. On the DCCC I serve as the vice-chair for voter registration and am proud of our work.
As democrats we share basic values. And in San Francisco those values are even more shared. However, we do, passionately, have our differences in approach and local issues. On the DCCC I have striven to be independent, think for myself, actively listen to the grassroots, and keep an open mind. That’s exactly the type of fairness we need right now. Our city is more united than it is divided but our democratic party can sometimes seem like it is anything but united. We need to be as proud of our political entities as we are of our city. We need positive, hopeful, progressive leadership that will work with all, defame none, and walk the walk they talk.
In a DCCC election where there are clear “sides” and former and current elected officials are crowding out the chance for young activists from getting a foot-hold in local politics, my candidacy represents a challenge to that narrative because I will work hard, be fair, and ultimately do more to make sure the DCCC is open to all. As someone living with a new baby in a one-bedroom, rent-controlled apartment, I will keep affordability and livability in the forefront. As a public school teacher I will keep proper funding for public services in the forefront. And as a democrat I will not let those matters that divide us locally get in the way of the SFDCCC doing what it can to make an impact nationally. I would appreciate your vote.
