Dori became politically active during Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign. The disastrous 2016 presidential election results spurred her to join the 2017 Women’s March in Washington D.C. She formed and led an Indivisible group for 2017 and joined OFA in 2018.

She has been active as a Precinct Captain and Regional Director in the HCDEC since 2019. She is also a member of the Training Committee and enjoys helping volunteers learn.

Rudina Richter Region 5

(She/Her/Hers)

I come to political activity from many angles:  

  • Holding a graduate degree in Microbiology, I treasure the respect our party shows for science and medicine.
  • As a licensed, practicing mental health professional I appreciate the value our party places on the ACA, and on helping meet the mental and physical health needs of each of us. 
  • As a mother and grandmother, I cherish the priority Democrats have demonstrated for universal education and for the emphasis placed on acceptance and inclusion, as we each travel through our life’s journey.

My community, my children and my grandchildren deserve the best lives possible, and I am dedicated to doing my utmost to ensure that we can all realize our own life’s potential. Please join me in this pursuit!
