My name is Daniel O’Donnell, I’m a resident of Vista, where I currently serve as the Vice President of the Democratic Club of Vista.
We have all been given an opportunity to stand up and be a voice for those who feel as though they don’t have one, but for too long we have let down the very people that help prop us up. I’ve dedicated my education to governing and have been working on campaigns since I moved to San Diego in 2011.
I’m running, because I believe in the equality of a democracy where everyone is included. I’ve worked with small businesses the last two years and have seen the direct impact this pandemic has taken on them and the communities they serve. I am running because for the last 10 years I have worked with those who want genuine progress for the people who need it most, and I have seen firsthand what it takes to be a leader in our community.
Today is the day and now is that time.
I will take my life experience, coupled with the work that I have done, and help bring meaningful direction to our party and to the communities we serve.
I am honored to be running alongside such an amazing group of people and by electing me and the other members of The People’s Slate, you will be electing Progress, Climate/Environmental Action, Equality, Experience, Racial and Social Justice, and the fundamental belief that we are all in this together.
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.
