I am a progressive Democrat, single payer activist, and policy wonk. Since getting elected as a delegate two years ago, I’ve helped effect change both within and outside the Democratic Party. Working with National Nurses United and other affiliated groups, I helped mobilize the effort to pass single payer here in California, and helped write I-1600, the single payer initiative in Washington State. Within the Party, as a member of the Credentials, and later Rules, committees, I wrote two bylaws changes, both of which passed. The first would curb the ability of sexual predators to receive the Party endorsement, the second allows us to mobilize behind legislation we endorse as a Party. I also helped lead Party opposition to AB 84, a bill that would have seized power from grassroots Democrats and transferred it to a few legislative elites. I hope I can count as your support as we move to expand these efforts to make the Democratic Party more active, vibrant, and inclusive..[2]
