The Changing of The Guard

  • The Changing of The Guard*

Instead of passing a torch, we passed Suju's Coffee as Martha Kreeger and I discussed her replacing me as Rep. Ro Khanna’s delegate to the Alameda County Democratic Party’s Central Committee.

I’m very thankful for the opportunity to serve as Ro’s voice and vote for more than two years and humbled by the new responsibilities I’m taking on as Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s press assistant on the presidential campaign trail.

Super excited for Martha, and I hope she keeps pushing for more transparency and inclusion in the culture of our California Democratic Party. 🙏🏼🇺🇸☕️ — with Ro Khanna and Martha Kreeger at Suju's Coffee & Tea.

Standing for AD 20

In 2019 Cullen Tiernan stood from AD 20 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.

I would be honored to continue to serve as your delegate from Assembly District 20. Since the last election, I’ve attended every meeting of the California Democratic Party and have been elected Chair of our Veterans Caucus and our E-Board Representative.

As Veteran Caucus Chair, we have held joint meetings with the Arab-American and Disabilities Caucuses and created a sub-committee dedicated to bringing home Deported Veterans.

I’ve also been humbled to serve as Congressman Ro Khanna’s Delegate to our Alameda County Central Committee. There, I’ve helped push for greater transparency, and I’m happy to report that our meetings are now documented on Facebook Livestream.

In Fremont, I’ve now lead two clean-money campaigns for City Council. Both on platforms that are unapologetically Progressive on every issue. Our last campaign earned the 4th largest amount of votes in the city, but due to our district election system, we did not earn one of the 4 seats available.[1]

People-Powered Progressives

Cullen Tiernan January 4 2019:


I enthusiastically endorse Kelsey Pressnall to represent California’s Assembly District 20 with the California Democratic Party’s eboard.

Her energy, her heart, her ability to speak truth to power remains unmatched by anyone I’ve ever seen. After all we have been through as a party, we need her voice, her moral clarity and her freedom from conflict of interests on the state level now.

Khanna connection

Cullen Tiernan September 20, 2018 ·

It’s been a tremendous honor to serve as Rep. Ro Khanna’s delegate to the Alameda County Democratic Party, and to push for a progressive agenda in our party.

We are winning that effort, across party lines, and I’m even more honored to have Ro’s endorsement with our campaign for Fremont City Council.


Fremont’s future is brighter, because of Ro’s wisdom and leadership, and it’s such a joy to have friends who work hard and stand up for each other when the going gets tough. ✊🏽✊🏽 — with Ro Khanna in Washington, District of Columbia.
