Questions & Answers

1. What would you do to increase the number of voters registered in your party?

This has been a consistent priority for the Democratic Party. Central Committee has done wonderful work in this area, but it is time to take this work a step further. Central Committee needs to partner with other democratic, political, and nonprofit organizations as well as with elected officials to create and implement a plan to reach the tens of thousands of eligible, unregistered voters in Santa Clara County. I would like to work with my fellow central committee members to begin voter registration efforts again.

2. What would you do to help the campaigns of candidates of your party?

Central Committee should be a resource for all Democratic candidates in Santa Clara County. I would like to see Central Committee redouble its grassroots efforts, and volunteer for all of its endorsed candidates, talking to voters, walking precincts, phone banking and helping candidates plan, staff and put on events for the community.

3. Why did you become a member of this political party?

I became a member of the Democratic Party when I was first old enough to register to vote, at age 17 1/2. I grew up under the Clinton Administration, and was inspired by the values of diplomacy, inclusiveness, fairness and caring for people. I will always be proud to be a Democrat.
