I am running for reelection to the DCCC because of my lifelong commitment to the Democratic Party and my ongoing desire to help build it, make it successful, and ensure that the party is a strong voice for our shared progressive values.
I registered as a Democrat the day I turned 18 in 1988, and I have been working to build the party ever since. I founded a Democratic club in college, campaigned for many Democrats, and co-chaired the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club.
I have served on the DCCC since 2004 and have been a committed member. I served as chair of the DCCC from 2006-08, during a time when we registered 15,000 voters. I have continued to be an engaged member, including helping raise funds for the party.
