Welcome to Spencer Brandt, our new Organizing Director

The Democratic Party of Santa Barbara County is proud to welcome Spencer Brandt as the new Organizing Director.

The Organizing Director will be responsible for coordinating, maintaining and supporting grassroots activities by the party, its clubs, and endorsed candidates. This includes recruiting and training volunteers to canvass, phonebank, and register voters, coordinating joint field operations for endorsed candidates and ballot measures, and managing party communications.

Spencer was born and raised in California’s Central Valley, and moved to Santa Barbara to attend UCSB in 2015. In 2016, Spencer ran with the Party’s endorsement for the Isla Vista Community Services District Board of Directors, where he now serves as President of the Board. As a student, he sat on the Board of the UC Student Association, where he worked with students and progressive activists to combat the rising cost of tuition and housing. He will graduate from UC Santa Barbara this June with a B.A. in History.

Spencer is excited to get to work organizing in upcoming elections across the County, and build the party’s ability to fight for progressive change. He will begin working full-time in June.
