Standing for AD 4
In 2019 Natalie Higley stood from AD 4 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.
I’m running for re-election to the CDP representing AD4. I got involved more in depth with politics in 2015 with the Bernie Sanders Campaign. I was elected as the first place female delegate for Bernie in Congressional District 3 and attended the convention for him in Philadelphia. It was a very eye opening experience. Two years ago I decided to run for party leadership because I didn’t feel that voices like mine were being represented. I’m from Lake County–which falls entirely within AD4–but very rarely has state level representation.
Last cycle I formed a coalition with groups across the district and created the Progressive Labor Alliance Slate. We were elected with some of the highest vote totals ever recorded in this district because of our efforts to turnout and inspire new voters looking for change within the Party. As your delegate representative I was the AD4 whip for Kimberly Ellis at the convention and had the privilege of working with her team to deliver votes and support resolutions and rules changes within the Party increasing transparency and accessibility.
Since then I’ve worked on red to blue races while fighting for progressive candidates and policy beneficial to working-class Americans. I had the privilege to run Dotty Nygard’s Our Revolution endorsed Congressional Campaign in CD10 against Jeff Denham. I was also able to fill the role of Interim Northern Vice Chair of the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party.
Locally I’ve been active with my Democratic Central Committee, running the Lake County Campaign office during the 2018 general election–successfully electing almost all of our candidates! If re-elected, my main goals include pushing the Party and our elected officials to hold PG&E accountable for the fires that have devastated our region including Lake, Napa, and Sonoma Counties as well as policies focusing on preventative measures. I am also prepared to fight for rural internet access, universal healthcare, protection for our farm workers from unsafe working conditions and unfair pay, cleaning up the environmental devastation in clear lake and local waterways, supporting a Green New Deal for our economy and ensuring that any new officers elected to the California Democratic Party will be fair and transparent in their dealings while working to eliminate the toxic environment within the Party at the state level. I’m running with a slate of candidates on the Rural Progressive Alliance who share these goals and are prepared to work together to execute them.
