Hon. Cory Wolbach
Palo Alto City Council Member (Former)
Activism focus: Housing, Climate, Civil Liberties, Racial & Economic Equity
Hi, I’m Cory Wolbach, a progressive Democratic activist and former Palo Alto Council Member. I was elected as an ADEM delegate by Democrats in our district in 2017, and would be honored to earn your vote to represent our grassroots activists once again.

CADEM can do so much more to help create a better future for Silicon Valley and all Californians. We can support grassroots organizing and the next generation of leaders. We can train our candidates to win at every level against entrenched, conservative politicians. We can lead our nation in tackling our biggest problems:
Affordable housing, childcare, healthcare, and education
Ensuring equal justice for all
Reforming our elections and labor laws to elevate the voices of working people above wealthy interests
Ensuring COVID relief and the post-COVID recovery benefit everyone
Turning possibility into reality depends upon pragmatism, vision, and leadership.
As a local Democratic activist, I’ve led Peninsula Young Democrats, served on the board of the Peninsula Democratic Coalition for seven years, and twice helped draft the Santa Clara County Democratic Party Platform. I’ve led successful organizing for CADEM to take a stand for reforming leadership at our public universities, and I’ve lobbied our legislators to make housing affordability a reality. I’ve worked to elect young, progressive candidates, and I’ve shined light on unethical behavior by local politicians and CADEM officials.
As a member of the Palo Alto City Council, I led the charge on:
Addressing our housing crisis in the face of powerful NIMBY and business interests
Raising the minimum wage
Requiring transparency of surveillance technology used by local government
Protecting the rights of all people in our community in the face of Trump’s attacks on our most vulnerable
I’m eager to hear your ideas about how the Democratic Party can better serve us and reflect our values. Please email me at email@example.com with your ideas and questions. I invite you to learn more about our slate of experienced, progressive leaders here: https://www.ad24.vote/
We proudly ENDORSE Cory Wolbach for ADEM!
