My Top 3 Priorities

  • Create a more welcoming local Democratic Party that encourages people to get involved
  • Ensure that all candidates supported by the Democratic Party, via endorsements or financial contributions, support Democratic Ideals (i.e. healthcare for all, rent control etc.) and they continue to advance polices that align with Democratic values
  • Promote greater outreach to the community, service organizations and local Democratic clubs to ensure that we are always bringing new life and progressive ideas into the party

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am running for the Alameda County Democratic Central Committee to ensure that our local party is a institution that is more welcoming to new people and new ideas. Our party is broken and we all too often fail to act like Democrats. At times, our local party fails to hold elected officials accountable and we rarely challenge incumbents, even if they fail to deliver for constituents or vote against progressive legislation. This must change.

We should only support candidates that support our principles AND actively carry them out in public policy i.e, healthcare for all, rent control and just cause evictions, livable wages that are actually livable in the Bay Area, Union workers and competitive contracts, oversight of local law enforcement and transparency in how our local tax dollars are spent.

I would be honoted to have your support on the March 3rd ballot.
