Katherine (Kathy) Paspalis

Candidate for:

2nd Vice Chair

Why I'm running.

I am relatively new to Multnomah County, but I have a long history of working in Democrat Party politics in the county I moved from, and I believe the best way to get involved and learn how things work here is to just get involved. I have held leadership roles in a couple of Democratic clubs, and I have held local elected office. I have run three successful election campaigns – for election, reelection and a $100M+ construction bond on three different ballots. I’ve worn a few different career hats, including attorney (I am still licensed in the state of CA), senior project manager, and nonprofit development professional (in various roles). I am a single lesbian mom of 20-something twins, and I live out in Gresham. I have spoken with the current VC2 and am aware of the position’s duties and I am up for the tasks. I look forward to working with the new Mult Dem leadership team.
