Defining the Region:
The Northern Vice Chair Region of the Progressive Caucus represents the area in red on the map to the right. While the election is statewide, Vice Chairs represent their districts on a variety of progressive issues that are important to the Progressive Caucus.
Naturally, there are other vice chairs for other regions of the state, but there is always room to increase representation by increasing the number of Vice Chairs on the Progressive Caucus, and casting the vote by-district, instead of at-large.
Vice Chairs assist the Chair in carrying out the chair’s duties, and serve as Senior Representatives for their regions, responsible for overseeing and organizing their regions through communication, outreach, education, and advocating for issues, projects, and campaigns promoted by the Progressive Caucus.
Vice Chairs are also required to report at least once a month to the board and to regional members.
David Hildebrand of Sacramento, California is the current Northern Vice Chair.
