Contribute Now to Our Very Favorite People

by The ActBlue Team. The first in an occasional series.


We've just come back from Netroots Nation, and while we were there, we ran into some of our very favorite people: our candidates. Starting this week, we'll introduce you to some of ActBlue's best and brightest. Our first stop: the Nevada Second, where Jill Derby is running for Congress.

A fourth generation Nevadan, Jill Derby served eighteen years on the Nevada Board of Regents, guiding the state's System of Higher Education. Jill holds a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology, a specialty she chose after living and working in the Middle East, and has taught at four universities.

And then there's her political skill. As chair of the Nevada State Democratic Party, Jill oversaw this year's historic Nevada Caucuses, exceeding all predictions about turnout and helping more than 120,000 Nevadans to participate at more than 1700 precinct meetings across the state. Watch what she has to say.
