Linda Sell's Volunteerism:

  • Served on foundations and committees that have raised millions for our local schools

  • Sunnyvale Housing and Human Services Commissioner*

  • Co-founder and currently vice chair of an environmental non-profit that has been instrumental in radically reducing emissions of local toxic pollutants

  • Sunnyvale Democratic Club Vice President and former Silicon Valley Democratic Club Board Member*

  • Served as Campaign Organizer for about 10 progressive local campaigns

Appointed by Ro Khanna as a Democratic State Central Committee Delegate (2016-2020)*As devastating wildfires continue to sweep across our state, the need for action on climate change is immediate and urgent. To aggressively tackle climate change here in California, I worked with volunteers across the state collecting thousands of signatures and gathering organizational endorsements in support of SB100, a bill that was signed into law and will set California on the path to 100% clean energy by the year 2045. I am also a co-founder and adviser of a non-profit organization in which students can learn about ways to address climate issues.

Over the last decade, I have served on an educational foundation and in leadership positions on several steering/campaign committees in support of our schools. In 2010, I was one of the core volunteers of the "Their Future is Now" (TFIN) campaign* that saved over 100 teacher positions in CUSD after raising $2.5 million in eight weeks. In addition, my work with others in the community on related efforts have resulted in resources being invested into instructional and enrichment programs for thousands of students each year.

As your Assembly District 24 Delegate in the Democratic Party, I would look forward to continue working collaboratively with parents, students, environmentalists, and other Democrats, on issues that will lead to positive outcomes for all in our community. Thank you for your consideration and for the opportunity to earn your vote.

I am honored to have been endorsed by Congressman Ro Khanna*, Santa Clara County Supervisor Otto Lee*, former Sunnyvale Vice Mayor Tara Martin-Milius* and Mike Serrone who is the President of the Sunnyvale Democratic Club*.
