San Francisco:

Matt Haney – School Board

Paul Henderson – Superior Court Judge

London Breed – Board of Supervisors


East Bay:

James Vaughn – Tracy Unified School Board

Mister Phillips – West Contra Costa School Board

The Social Politician™ discusses Social Media with Cory Booker

Cory Booker and Kevin L. Nichols

[May 1, 2014] SAN FRANCISCO.  I had the pleasure of meeting Cory Booker again during his visit to San Francisco last week.  Many people know him as the former Newark, New Jersey Mayor, or current U.S. Senator of New Jersey.  I know him has a social politician!

Whereas, I make politicians look good online and in some cases manage their campaigns, Cory Booker is the actual candidate who also runs about 90% of his social media.  I was floored when I asked him how he juggles it all?  He said (paraphrasing that is) that basically before or after appointments, he logs into his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts to see what is going on and either responds or sends out new material.  Then, he also schedules more thought provoking or meaningful communications when he knows that he will be unavailable.

I am glad that Cory took the liberty to ReTweet my Tweet to his 1.46 million followers on Twitter and all and all, he is a really great guy.






To learn more about his campaign, please visit and to learn more about Cory and other politicians, please like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!

Takeaways from FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s visit to San Francisco

(SAN FRANCISCO, Ca)  The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS), Michelle Obama, visited the Bay Area on January 30, 2014, to motivate and inspire California democrats to take the upcoming midterm elections seriously and to get more involved in the local, state, and federal elections.  FLOTUS stated that the passion and fervor that the party demonstrated in 2008, definitely dissipated in 2012, and could evaporate in 2014 if democrats do not “show up.”

Michelle Obama also encouraged democrats to assist other states with tight races in order to pick up the 17 or so congressional seats needed to reclaim a majority in the House of Representatives.   If this was not possible, she recommended donors write a check to make a impact.

California is such an influential state in that many of our races appear to be insignificant because of its majority of blue (democratic) voters, however, this complacency often backfires during mid-term elections.  Rather than pulling of the gas pedal, let’s press forward with making a difference not only in our state, but others’ around us so that we can support our President and further his agenda.
