Peter Gallotta


My name is Peter Gallotta and I am the current Co-President of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club and have served on the Executive Board of the Club since 2012, first as the Recorder and then as the Vice President of Internal Affairs. I am proud to be a part of a Club that stands for social and economic justice, that believes in working at the intersections of identity and issues, and that builds queer progressive power and leadership in San Francisco. As Co-President, I have worked with the Executive Board and membership to advocate for #CleanPowerSF, the Mission moratorium, greater regulation of short term rentals and AirBnb, and building more affordable housing. We've also worked together to hold the San Francisco Pride Board and SFPD accountable, engage and recruit new members, and implement our 2015 political program which helped get Aaron Peskin elected to the Board of Supervisors. 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the Club and a pivotal year in electoral politics. With your support, I am committed to ensuring that 2016 yields a strong, inclusive, and effective Harvey Milk Club that will do the work that needs to be done to continue to elect progressive leaders and keep San Francisco a city for all of us. When not wearing my Harvey Milk Club t-shirt, you can likely find me fighting for improved transit along the Geary corridor or helping to address hunger in my neighborhood of seven years, the Tenderloin, with Mama G's Thanksgiving Street Dinner, or in line for a cup of coffee! Contact me!

Vice President of Political Affairs

Lee Hepner

My name is Lee Hepner, and I'm looking forward to my fourth year of service on the board of the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club. I'm honored to be nominated for VP of Political Affairs. I intend to use our Political Action Committee as a forum for in-depth and dynamic conversations around core issues to the club and hope to oversee an endorsement process that is thoroughly transparent, accessible, and without conflicts of interest. I currently serve as a Legislative Aide to San Francisco District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin. Previously, I worked as a civil litigation attorney handling police misconduct, free speech, unlawful termination and landlord-tenant cases. Contact me!

Vice President of External Affairs

Paulina Maldonado 


My name is Paulina Maldonado and I am running for Vice President of External Affairs. I am thrilled at the prospect of serving on the executive board again this year to make sure we make 2016 the comeback year for progressive politics in San Francisco. My passion lies in Criminal Justice reform. In 2010 I graduated from California State University, Fresno and earned my degree in Criminology, with an emphasis in Law Enforcement. Through a partnership with CSU Fresno and the Fresno Police Department, I also graduated from the police academy (P.O.S.T). After college, I worked alongside newly elected Honorable Daniel A. Flores in his criminal defense practice largely serving the Spanish-speaking community for four and a half years. In 2014, I managed his successful campaign for San Francisco Superior Court Judge.

Vice President of Internal Affairs

Cynthia Crews


When I was 16, I first became an activist fighting against environmental pollution in a town home to three superfund sites. I’m excited to run for the office of Vice-President for Internal Affairs after being a Milk Club member for five years. My activism has focused on partnering with organizations that seek to empower women, people of color, LGBTQ communities, and persons with disabilities. I am proud to support progressive legislation and candidates, to work on grassroots campaigns, and to take it to the streets with direct action. For the past five years, I’ve served on the Steering Committee of The League of Pissed Off Voters, focusing on voter education, participation, and advocacy. I serve as Vice Chair of the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) in the public seat where we’re pushing CleanPowerSF over the finish line. When I’m not fighting the good fight, I work as a Project Manager in the healthcare industry, focusing on communications for compliance and ethics. With a passion for politics that keeps me busy, I still find time to shake a tail feather and celebrate this amazing city I’ve called home for 15 years. Contact me! 

Executive Board Political

Nathanial Owen


I'm excited to be running for Executive Board Political, after serving this past year as Recorder on the E-Board. While I hail from the South, I made the trek with my partner to San Francisco a year and a half ago and immediately jumped into the city's queer progressive politics through the Harvey Milk Club. In my day job, I tackle racial and economic justice as a program director at Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA), where I recently launched a microloan fund for low-income Latino and immigrant small business owners here in San Francisco. I am running for this specific position on the Milk Club board because I want to play a major role in shaping our PAC meetings, bringing policymakers, activists, and thought leaders together to educate and engage our members on the political issues that are so critical to the city's future. I'm also looking forward to rolling up my sleeves for the huge political fights we as queer progressives must win in 2016. Here's to fighting the good fight for the heart and soul of this amazing city where I now call home. Contact me!

I do work with a national anti-racist political education organization and do research and other support work for a grassroots, veteran-led anti-war organization. My partner teaches at MHS and we parent a kid together. I'm running for the Milk Club Board because I want to continue to contribute to and grow our queer progressive movement in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. I am passionate about leadership and member development, and since beginning to staff a commission three years ago, I've become somewhat of a nerd for procedure, ie bylaws, etc.

Ryan MacCarrigan


I'm a Product Design Consultant who specializes in teaching human-centered design ("design thinking" and "lean startup") to early-stage entrepreneurs, business owners, and governments. In short, I coach teams on how to design innovative products and services that solve real problems for real people (not worthless solutions for the privileged 1%). This is accomplished through a process of rigorous user research and market testing, resulting in a better understanding of the attitudes, needs, and goals of the target audience. Before becoming a consultant, I served as the Head of Marketing at several tech startups in NYC and SF. I previously served in the role of Executive Board Internal in 2015. As a veteran techie, I'm in a unique position to expand the Milk Club's outreach and influence among queer progressives in the tech community. In my role as Executive Board Outreach: "Tech Liaison", I will focus on the following areas: New member acquisition among queer progressives in tech, coalition building among progressive tech organizations, relationship building with progressive leaders at tech companies (Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc.), and securing financial support from tech companies that care about community revitalization, affordable housing, anti-displacement, and homelessness. I'd also like to launch a series of events and workshops aimed at fostering queer progressive leadership within tech. It's time for us to stand up to the likes of Ron Conway and those who use money to buy power and influence within city government. The Milk Club should and can have a say in how the tech community influences our beloved city. Contact me!



Albany Arroyan


I’m running for re-election to the Board because I am both prepared for, and humbled by, the challenges that lay ahead in 2016, as we fight to ensure progressive values are, and remain, San Francisco values. As a POC, and the son of an undocumented immigrant, I know that there is much work to be done to continue the fight for racial justice in our overall social justice platform. I have four years of experience in professional campaign treasury work, and have been working within public accounting firms for the past six years, in a wide range of accounting practice areas. I’m looking forward to a successful and hard fought year alongside our general membership, and E-Board colleagues. Contact me!


Jessica Andrepont

My name is Jessica Andrepont and I am a queer, cis gender woman of color running for the Harvey Milk EBoard to continue to effect positive change in my community in any way that I am able. I am a Master of Public Affairs student at USF, a Legislative and Policy Graduate Fellow in Jane Kim's Supervisorial Office, and have been personally and professionally committed to addressing the unique social justice issues of our community for about 20 years. The Harvey Milk Club provides a wonderful opportunity for me to continue to advocate for civil rights, economic justice, ending homelessness, and environmental protection all within the context of how these policy issues (amongst many others) affect our increasingly economically marginalized QT community. Contact me!


Angel VanStark


My name is Angel VanStark, and I'm a young, queer POC who has formerly experienced homelessness.  Currently, I work for a tech company (*sorry*), serve as a board of directors for the LGBT Center of San Francisco, and as a board member for the company LGBT resource group pushing more inclusive internal projects and recruiting efforts.  I'm running for Recorder, because I think that the role would be perfect for me to get to know everyone and get my leadership chops more developed in a PAC world to later on be able to take on more involved roles when I'm more financially secure; I'm also hoping that by being a part of the internal team, I can bring some engagement and recruiting strategies that are aimed towards helping our progressive movement grow and hold high levels of retention. Contact me!

I've served as co-president for the last two years, PAC Chair before that, starting as an at large member of the EBoard.
