Throughout my tenure on the SMCDCC I have served in various capacities including as chair, vice chair and the endorsements committee chair. I now serve as the resolutions committee chair and volunteer my time and institutional knowledge where needed and requested. It has been my distinct honor to help build the Democratic Party in San Mateo County and elect and re-elect outstanding local leaders who continue to champion issues such as affordable housing, improving public transit, supporting quality public education, environmental stewardship, gender and racial equality, LGBTQ rights and maintaining and improving labor standards among many efforts.


As part of the leadership team of the SMCDCC, I helped to modernize our communications tools including web, email and social media improvements. I personally developed and expanded our slate mail program in support of local, state and federal candidates sending over 32,000 slates to local Democratic Party voters in the 2018 General Election alone.

For many election cycles I have helped or overseen the coordinated campaign including locating and renting a headquarters, helping to hire staff, connecting utilities and doing all of the infrastructural work of setting up a functioning headquarters

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Under our current Chair and leadership team, the SMCDCC is a model of success supporting candidates, sponsoring an election training seminar series for aspiring candidates, hosting interesting and dynamic speakers at our general meetings, outreaching to clubs and allied organizations to build capacity for supporting Party efforts on a range of fronts and raising the necessary funds to open and maintain a robust headquarters for the 2020 Presidential General Election. I am now seeking another term so that I can continue to help the SMCDCC and support our leadership team to help our candidates to keep San Mateo County blue.
