New Leadership in Place for Local Democrats

FRESNO—At the August meeting of the Fresno County Democratic Central Committee (FCDCC), Michael D. Evans was reelected chair of the local Democratic Party for a fourth term. Evans also chairs the California Democratic Party’s Federation of Democratic Central Committee Members and serves on the Executive Board of the Democratic State Central Committee.

“Our immediate focus is on electing Democrats in November,” says Evans. “With an infusion of new members and the renewed enthusiasm of our returning members, we are poised for an aggressive get-out-the-vote effort.”

Other officers elected were Bob Jones of Sanger as first vice chair, Magdalena Gomez of Parlier as second vice chair, Jeni Kren of Clovis as secretary and Estella Kessler of Selma as controller.

“We have a competent, creative and committed leadership team,” said Evans. “And the representation of multiple cities throughout the county on our team is the best it has ever been.”

The FCDCC officers are elected following the central committee election, which takes place in presidential election years for a four-year term. An FCDCC district mirrors a Board of Supervisors district, and three of the five districts had contested races on this year’s June ballot, including a record 12 candidates for six seats in District 2.

The Fresno County Democratic Party has its headquarters at 1035 U Street in downtown Fresno and is hosting the official Coordinated Campaign for Fresno County Democrats in this election cycle. To learn more about Fresno County Democrats, contact 559-495-0606 or or visit or
