The SF Democratic County Central Committee (DCCC) is the governing body of the San Francisco Democratic Party. It is composed of 10 members on the west side of SF (Assembly District 19), 14 members on the east side (Assembly District 17), as well as proxies for the state and federal elected officials who live in San Francisco (such as U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein and State Senator Mark Leno, among others). Alix is an incumbent in D17, re-elected in June 2012.

The DCCC is responsible for:
Endorsements: The DCCC makes endorsements in local races on behalf of the Democratic Party, to inform Democratic voters about the candidates and ballot measures it considers most worthy of support.
Resolutions: The DCCC debates and approves resolutions on behalf of the San Francisco Democratic Party, taking stances on important issues of the day. These resolutions usually involve legislation before another local or statewide body, or actions taken by government agencies that it wishes to encourage or denounce. You may find the resolutions I’ve authored or co-authored here.
Voter Registration: Throughout the year, the DCCC works hard to register Democrats in San Francisco.
Voter Outreach: Our grassroots volunteers and activists reach out to voters, providing information on endorsed candidates and motivating Democratic supporters to vote.
Chartered Democratic Clubs: There are currently over thirty Democratic clubs and organizations active in San Francisco. The DCCC is responsible for chartering the official “Democratic” clubs.
Fundraising: The DCCC raises funds to accomplish all of the above activities.
