— this is really happening

go edie

Hey folks, big bid for local politics. My friend Edie Irons is running for East Bay Central Committee. You’ll see her name on the ballot today (if you live in Alameda County, CA … don’t you?). She would, by far, be the youngest Committee member in history. Edie is one of the most dynamic, inspired community leaders I know. I met her at a bluegrass festival a few years ago and her good energy, cute smile, and multitude of stickers and pins lead me to just walk up to her and start chatting. She’s the real thing. Three cheers, hands high.

 

EDIE IRONS was president of the East Bay Young Demorats in 2006 and 2007. She was elected to the steering committee of the 14th AD in 2004 and has served as Vice President of Membership for the California Young Democrats, and as Karen Weinstein’s alternate on the County Committee. Edie has worked as a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, a research intern for the Alameda Central Labor Council, and volunteered as a fundraiser and event planner for the League of Young Voters. For the past three years her day job has been at a nonprofit dedicated to improving college access and affordability.

“I’m running for the Central Committee because I want to help make the local and state Democratic party more effective, transparent and accountable. I’m also passionate about increasing engagement in Democratic electoral politics amoung young people.”
