Helena Straughter has been appointed to the board of the Alameda County Consumer Affairs Commission and the California Democratic Party African American Caucus Region 6 District.
A progressive Democrat, Straughter coordinates training sessions on how to run for positions as Democratic Party delegate. “My objective is building bridges and empowering communities,” she said.
