Mike Faison

2nd Chair

Mike is a member of the NAACP, on the Public Relations Winchester Red Cross Team, and Board member of the Winchester Main Street Foundation.

Kate Simpson


Growing up in Berkeley, traveling the world, teaching for 35 years (WPS and LFCC), raising children, and coaching adults toward financial and emotional stability, the move to political activism came naturally. As a Democrat and feminist, she casts her vote for the kind of society that works for females and males, young and old, and people up and down the economic ladder, a stable community whose policies enhance fellow citizens’ lives.

Marie Straub


Marie has been a member of the Democratic Committee for the better part of 15 years and the Treasurer for nearly 9 of those years. She is a native of Virginia having grown up in Norfolk, VA. She later moved to Winchester, making it her home since 1992.
