Questions & Answers

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

I have spent hours registering voters at festivals, malls, and in my neighborhood. My primary goal as an elected member of the central committee is to increase voter turnout by registering more voters and communicating with them once they are registered. By building and maintaining systems to keep track of volunteers in our county, I help recruit people to staff our voter registration activities. I will continue to encourage everyone to be registered to vote and to carry voter reg forms with me wherever I go.

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

As Communications Director of the Democratic Party in Santa Clara County, I provide the infrastructure through which candidates can promote their campaigns. I make sure that endorsed candidates are publicized to the voters through press releases and our website, I also walk precincts, make phone calls, and advise candidates on their campaigns.

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

The Democratic Party is the only one dedicated to providing a level playing field in our society. We feel that everyone should have equal chances and those who have been successful have an interest in making sure that nobody gets left behind. We fight to offer everyone a quality education, access to health care, and jobs that pay a living wage. Our party also stands for preserving our natural resources so that our children and their children will have the same opportunities as I did to experience the natural wonders of the world.
