Carolyn Phinney
I have a PhD in research psychology from the University of California, Berkeley.  I am retired, having worked last at the University of Michigan teaching and doing research.  As an elected member of the Contra Costa County Democratic Party Central Committee, I was the Field Organizer for the 2010 election. We delivered nearly 10% of the Official Democratic Party slate cards delivered in the state under my leadership and pulled Kamala Harris and Jerry McNerney across the finish line in doing so.  The Regional Director of the California Young Democrats nominated me for Contra Costa County Women's Commission "Woman of the Year 2012" for my community organizing. I founded the Michelle Obama Fan Club, which has over 12,000 members on Facebook and is worldwide.  Obviously, I am a political activist.  My two young adult children are in graduate school getting PhDs, one at UC Berkeley (Political Science/Latino politics and Latin America is her focus) and the other at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York (Cognitive Science is his focus).  I live in Orinda.
