New Leadership elected to Board
of S.F. D11 Democratic Club
The meeting on February 14 saw new Board members elected to lead the S.F. D11 Democratic Club with quite a few firsts.
The officeholders are as follows:
- President: William Juarez
- Vice-President: Rosario Cervantes
- Treasurer: Alex Walker
- Secretary: Lisa Lee
- Parliamentarian: Mary Goodnature
- At-large Member: Jose Torres
- At-large Member: Roger Underwood
The new president, William Juarez, will be a newly minted graduate of San Francisco State University this May. He is, however, no stranger to politics. He has precinct walked for the Club many times and was recording secretary for the Harvey Milk Democratic Club last year. Mr. Juarez, at 22 years, is the youngest President ever for the Club. We welcome his energy and new ideas.
Rosario Cervantes, the new Vice-President is well known in the community and has lived in the Excelsior for over 40 years. She is also Board President of Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth. Ms. Cervantes has already contributed a lot of time and energy to the Club as Membership Chair and champion precinct walker.
Alex Walker is our new Treasurer and he brings a wealth of experience as well. He has held leadership positions in the Harvey Milk Democratic Club and the San Francisco Young Democrats.
Lisa Lee was elected Secretary. We welcome her organizing experience with the United Educators of San Francisco.
We welcome back our Parliamentarian, Mary Goodnature, and we know our meetings will always adhere to Robert's Rules of Order for efficient and fair meetings.
Last, we have two new At-Large Member's of the Board, Jose Torres, our current bylaws chair and Roger Underwood, who served in that capacity several years ago.
A HUGE note of gratitude to the outgoing board members. Our immediate past president, Nadia Conrad had to move out of the City due to the housing crisis and was no longer eligible for membership. The Club thanks her for the valiant service she provided over the last four years and we are all sorry to lose her. We trust her newborn baby will be keeping her busy. Mary Harris has been VP at least since 2008 and she will be missed, but we know her dedication to the District 11 community continues on. Thank you to Amy Morán our former Secretary for stepping up when we needed you. And thanks go out to the former At-Large Members, Mel Flores, and, Al Harris. We hope to see you all at the D11 Dems meetings and events.
