April Verrett

We have a lot to be proud of as a Party -- from helping to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to fighting for progressive policies that help improve lives. But, we also have a lot of hard work ahead of us.

As Controller, I will ensure that valuable Party resources are managed in the same way I do with the hard-earned dollars of the 400,000 home care and nursing home workers I represent – efficiently, in their interest and with integrity.

I will also bring a new voice and perspective to the CDP leadership team, one who will support building a new generation of leaders, ensure that the Party is an actively anti-racist organization and importantly, one that harnesses our collective power to help make the dream of a California for ALL a reality.

April has spent her life building stronger communities and organizations to help working families achieve the promise of America. As a lifelong Democrat and union activist, she knows the power of collective action to bring change. She also knows that after all we have been through together these last few years, now is the time to recommit ourselves to the hard work that lies ahead of rebuilding, replenishing and renewing our state and nation. That work begins at home – within the California Democratic Party itself.
