This is a brief reminder that our Chapter Elections are TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1 at 6:30pm at the Quaker Meeting House, 2012 Chapala St, Santa Barbara.
* Anyone* can declare candidacy until voting for that seat begins
* *You must be a dues-paying member to run for chapter office and vote
* We will also be taking time to discuss priorities and campaigns that we want to focus on in the coming months, so this will be an important chapter meeting!

To see who’s running, check out our newest blog post with full bios excerpted here ([link removed]) :

** Co-chair (2 positions):

* Britta Y - “As co-chair, she would prioritize growing the chapter through working with the Bernie 2020 campaign and setting up an education working group to help new members build a collective class consciousness and engage with socialist ideas.”

* Per K - “As chair, I hope to grow and multiply our capacity, build new coalitions with local groups, improve our communications and successfully implement a slew of technology that DSA National are equipping us with.”

** Vice Chair (1 position)
* John D - “I believe in DSA’s mission and share the values guiding DSA’s policies and priorities. I helped to form the Santa Barbara chapter with some of the folks with whom I worked on Bernie Sanders’ primary campaign in 2015–16 and others.”

** Secretary (1 position)
* Barbara S - “I have been an active member of the SB DSA Chapter since it was established. I am passionate about the work that our chapter is doing and I would like to contribute more to the chapter as the Secretary.”

** Treasurer (1 position)
* Sara S - “I have recently become interested in the structural side of organizing, and have enjoyed learning about the technical and financial side of running a successful group as the Treasurer for DSA SB for the last year.”

** Outreach Coordinator (1 position)
* Zac S - “I learned a lot from our coalition work with Medicare for All and Just Cause, and would like to continue and strengthen that work to new horizons so that we’re able to unify and fight as a class in itself and for itself rather than as individuals or within separate groups.”

* Will V - “My political radicalization occurred around 10 years ago when I was on a combat deployment to Iraq, losing friends and realizing it was all for profit.”

** Communications Secretary (1 position)
* Damon G - “As I’m becoming more involved with my local DSA chapter I realize that my background has provided me some unique skills that I would like to use to serve the DSA in any way I can.”

** At-Large Representatives (2 positions)
* Jean Z - “I’m running because I believe in DSA platform and I want to be part of advancing it. I want to be part of the steering committee and work together on projects we pick to help our community.”

* One position open!

** Harassment Grievance Officers (2-4)
* Isabel L - “Addressing interpersonal issues that come up in a fair and unbiased way will provide justice to all our members and ensure that we as a unit can thrive.”

* Per K - “It’s me again! Since HGO’s aren’t a Steering Committee position, I’m also running because I believe very strongly in the need for a clear, accountable process for ensuring that SB DSA remains an open, welcome space to organize that is safe and equitable.”
