Elect Daniel R.F. > Getting to know Daniel O’Donnell

“Together WE Will!”

Daniel was born into a working class family and was raised in a suburb just outside of Chicago on the city’s South Side. He attended Illinois State University where he received his Degree in Political Science and was elected to lead the Model Illinois Government organization, an organization of nearly 20 colleges and 300 students. Later, he would go on to obtain his Master’s Degree in Public Administration and Organizational Development from National University.

Daniel moved to San Diego in 2011 where his passions for community involvement and change were reignited. In 2012 he began working to help re-elect President Obama and help elect Scott Peters to 52nd Congressional District. In 2013 he worked as a Volunteer Coordinator for David Alvarez during his bid for Mayor of San Diego. Later that year he accepted a Fellowship with The San Diego LGBT Community Center and their Young Professional Counsel, which is designed to educate and engage future community leaders in the LGBTQ community and the allies that support them.

More recently Dan has been an active member with the San Diego Young Democrats, North County Young Democrats, Vista Democratic Club, Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club, and Escondido Young Democratic Club. In 2018 he worked to get voters engaged for the down ballot races by knocking on doors to help educate citizens about those issues and to help elect Governor Newsom. In 2019 he took part in the Vista Leadership Academy, where he received an up close look at how the city functions, while gaining experience on the inner working of our communities.

Daniel’s goal on the Democratic Party Central Committee is to strengthen the base of the Democratic Party through strong voter engagement, beginning with the future voters in our community. He understands that we need to elect leaders that want to create legitimate transit options, instead of building on top of our congested roads. Leaders that are willing create programs that will help and house our homeless population. Individuals that will work with the county, state, and federal government to find affordable and free healthcare options for all of our citizens, especially those who can’t afford insurance. Daniel believes in finding green energy solutions so that we can protect our communities, coastline and state parks for future generations. Most importantly, he wants provide a seat for everyone at our table, so that we can all prosper here in the 76th Assembly District and beyond.

Daniel understands working class people, because he comes from a working class family.
