This seat, in the heart of Silicon Valley, is one of our 16 in ’16 targets. Know a progressive tech-savvy woman who should run? A public policy dynamo?
Think about this: Speaker Pelosi, Senators Boxer and Feinstein, Congresswomen Eshoo, Lofgren, Lee and Speier make the Bay Area first in women’s political leadership in federal office.
Not so for state representatives. Only one women serves among the eight who comprise the Silicon Valley delegation in Sacramento. And in 2016, there could be none.
