Name   Gender   Candidate Statement
Noveed Safipour   Male   I am a Bay Area native who lives in San Mateo and works in Burlingame as a technical writer. Presently, I serve as the President of the Peninsula Young Democrats. I am multiethnic, with a Persian-American (Iranian) father and a half Mexican-American half Scottish-American mother. I also openly identify as gay and previously worked on campaigns for LGBT rights. I am running as a delegate for Assembly District 22 to make sure the communities I represent have a seat at the table. Because of my family's background, I am very aware that supporting immigrants sets our state up for success. I am a staunch advocate for equality, civil liberties, and an economy that works for everybody. But most importantly, I want to help our party improve its connection with young people. Too many young Californians have become disenchanted with politics and are not participating in our democracy--even though, in the long-run, we're the ones most affected by political decisions. I want to help our party take a stand in addressing housing affordability, health care, and public education without selling working families short. I hope I can earn your support to speak up on behalf of Democrats of all ages.
