“I endorse David Hildebrand for Progressive Caucus Northern California Vice Chair. I have had the opportunity to watch David work on multiple campaigns and causes over the course of the past three years. What I have seen from David has been consistency in both his political values and his treatment of others. I’ve seen a deep commitment to the real on the ground work that the Northern Vice Chair position so desperately requires. I’ve seen him effectively network statewide. I’ve seen him handle difficult and complex political situations with a calm and methodical approach that is frankly lacking within the party itself. He is the perfect person to hold this role and I look forward to him representing me and Northern California Progressives.”

“David spent over a year of his life campaigning, not just to win an election but more importantly, to speak before unique audiences throughout California about progressive issues, platforms, and goals. David is knowledgeable, committed, and ethical. He'll be a fabulous addition to our team bringing to it experience, enthusiasm, and considering his contacts as a former candidate, one might imagine a number of new members to our caucus.
