my first campaign to preserve a civil rights ordinance in 1986. I was a
statewide lobbyist for LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS organizations, legislating the
original registered domestic partnership framework and working for many
HIV/AIDS medical and privacy advancements back in the day. I also served
previously as Stonewall PAC Chair and Vice President between 2007 to 2009, in
addition to roles at the county and state Democratic parties. I have also
worked for elected officials for over 25 years, as a chief of staff and
