Sophie Maxwell

When the San Francisco Democratic Party ran Red to Blue SF with Speaker Pelosi (to flip Congressional seats in Southern and Central California), it was important that a Black woman lead our initiative. As a result, David appointed former San Francisco Supervisor Sophie Maxwell to spearhead that effort. 


Kimberly Ellis

David Campos was proud to endorse and support Kimberly Ellis in her 2017 run for CDP Chair.

As a formerly undocumented gay man, it has always been important to me to stand in solidarity with our nation’s Black women.


As Vice Chair, I will be committed to continuing to empower and support our state’s Black women leaders. This is why I'm so proud to have these Black women leaders support my candidacy.
