DEMONSTRATED LEADERSHIP, PROGRESSIVE VALUES
My name is Drew Combs and I’d like your support. I’m currently a member of the Menlo Park City Council and, for the past year, have had the privilege of serving as the city’s Vice Mayor.
All of our lives have changed in ways that we could barely imagine since the last time California Democrats gathered to select delegates. While we couldn’t have predicted this reality in which we’ve been battered by a pandemic and widespread job loss, it has further proven the importance of the progressive positions that underpin our party such as compassion, equity, and a commitment to science. But during this pandemic and before, I have demonstrated a commitment to housing, transportation and equity policies that prioritize compassion such as a rental assistance program.
My commitment to progressive policies, which dates to my time as a teenage volunteer on campaigns, is only matched by my commitment to community. I’ve taken to heart the well-known saying that "all politics is local." My community involvement began when I was selected to serve on the city’s bike commission, where I, along with my fellow commissioners, prioritized a multi-modal approach to the transportation infrastructure. From there, I went on to serve on the planning commission for four years, where I supported the production of housing that wasn’t only accessible for residents at the high end of the income spectrum.
And two years ago I was elected to the city council on a platform of transparency, ethics, and zoning updates. While on the City Council, I’ve also been a proponent of new approaches to public safety.
I’ll bring this same dedication to progressive principles to my role as a state party delegate. I’ll also bring skills derived from being a journalist for nearly a decade and a privacy program manager in the tech industry. Additionally, I'm committed to making sure all voices in our party are heard and a driving force behind its future success.
I would be honored to earn your vote to represent AD24 at the California Democratic Party.
