LOS ANGELES, CA – California Democratic Party Chair Rusty Hicks issued the following statement on the selection of Mark J. Gonzalez as the California State Director for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris:  

As Democrats work to build a more perfect union, choosing skilled leaders who will lead us in that fight is more important than ever. That’s why the California Democratic Party is proud to support the appointment of Mark Gonzalez as the California State Director for Team Biden and Harris.

As Chair of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, Mark has led efforts to unify communities across Los Angeles and collaborate with leaders across the state. His documented record of getting the job done is exactly the kind of leadership we need in California. From leading some of the most successful voter registration drives, to playing significant roles in federal, state, and local campaigns, to helping secure Democratic strongholds across California, CADEM is looking forward to working with Mark to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Now, let’s get to work. 


CADEM is the nation’s largest statewide Democratic Party, representing over 9 million California Democrats.
