Jason Clark, a longtime Republican volunteer leader, former San Francisco Republican Party chair, Trump Administration appointee, and the current Bay Area Republican Vice Chair by appointment, is running to be elected to the post. He says, "I'm looking forward to empowering our volunteers and inspiring them to lead into the 2024 elections."

Clark was appointed vice chair when the 2022 primary campaign was already underway. He supported volunteers, candidates, and county party leaders by connecting them with training, tools, and other resources. He also represented the Bay Area on the CAGOP board of directors.

Jason Clark's campaign theme "Empower. Inspire. Lead." encompasses his goals for the upcoming term. He says he will work to empower volunteers to organize effectively, candidates to access the data and tools they need, and county committees to get out the vote. He wants to inspire good candidates to run, local donors to invest in Bay Area Republican efforts, Republican voters to vote early and regularly, and grassroots volunteers to make a difference.    . . .  read more
