District Director to Assemblymember Mike Gipson and current Los Angeles County Young Democrat (LACYD) Regional Board Member, Chris Wilson recently declared his bid for President of the LACYDs. His announcement was made before a jam packed crowd at the December meeting of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party earlier this month. If elected, Chris Wilson would be the first African American President in the history of the club.

“2020 is just around the corner, and with LACYD being the largest organization of its kind in California, it is only fitting that we head into the Presidential year unified, strong, and focused,” said Chris Wilson.  “As President, it will be my top priority to hit the ground running on day one and restore the basic fundamentals our club was founded on. This is not about me. It’s about the soul and future of this organization.”

Wilson has racked up early endorsements from Assemblymember Mike Gipson and Long Beach Councilmember Rex Richardson, who became the youngest Vice Mayor in the history of the city in 2016. More information on Wilson’s campaign can be found here:


The election will be held in mid-January.
