Candidate biographical sketch

David Campbell is a lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area. He was born in Santa Rosa in 1964, and lived in Sonoma, Alameda and Santa Clara Counties as a child. His first full-time job after high school was an early political education -- he worked for a polling and research company that was involved in local campaigns, often for developers, and he saw first-hand "how elections are bought and sold."

After a period of temporary office work, he did legal secretarial work for an Alameda County law firm for five years, and moved to San Francisco in 1994 after obtaining a similar job with a large San Francisco-based law firm in 1993. He works for the same firm today as a Legal Document Specialist.

David Campbell became involved in the campaign against South African apartheid in 1985, and was soon active in the peace movement. He became a member of the Alameda County Peace and Freedom Party Central Committee in 1990, and was elected to the State Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party, on which he still serves, in 1992. In 1992 he also ran for State Senate from Alameda County. He was elected as a member of the San Francisco City and County Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party in 1994. He holds memberships in the San Francisco Tenants Union, the Labor Party, and NORML (National Organization for Reform of Marijuana Laws).

For relaxation David Campbell reads history, watches movies, and is a devoted fan of The Daily Show, but his chief leisure-time activity is motorcycle touring up and down the West Coast. He is a member of the American Motorcyclist Association, and has ridden his motorcycle as far south as San Diego and as far north as Vancouver, British Columbia.

In 2006 David Campbell is the Peace and Freedom Party candidate for Board of Equalization in the 1st District. With no opponent in the June primary, he will go on to face the nominees of three other parties in November. His priorities are to shift the tax burden from working people to the rich, to secure adequate funding for state programs that meet human needs, and to promote a strong and equitable economy. He describes himself as a "peace candidate," and points out that huge sums needed at home are being wasted on a useless war abroad.
