Hello, Friend!

My name is Rick Hauptman and on May 1, 2016 I was elected as a Delegate for Hillary Clinton from California's 12th Congressional District (San Francisco) to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

I am a lifelong Democrat and a passionate Hillary supporter. I am a San Francisco Bay Area grassroots leader for Hillary for America. In 2013 I founded 'Ready for Hillary San Francisco Bay Area' and have worked since then to help elect Hillary for President.

I have organized visibility for Hillary at numerous community events, neighborhood outings, fundraisers, and gatherings. I have done alot of grassroots fundraising at dozens of events and gatherings during these past 3 years.

(At Oakland Pride Hillary Party in 2015 with Jason Collins of the Golden State Warriors, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, and Kimberly Ellis of Emerge!)

In 2012 I was elected in as a delegate from San Francisco  and represented my district at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte. I attended my very first Convention in 1964 as a Young Democrat for Johnson, Humphrey, and Bobby Kennedy for US Senate!

The very first Ready for Hillary event I attended was in 2013 at the Berkeley Hills home of Karen Weinstein, past Chair of the Women's Caucus of the California Democratic Party. The featured guest was former Michigan Governor Granholm. It was truly an honor to meet her!

                (Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm)

I have given hundreds of volunteer hours working to elect democratic candidates at the local, state and national level. And have worked at all levels of political organizing from grassroots canvassing, phone banking, social media, and fundraising.

The money raised will help cover the cost of my trip to Philadelphia, hotel expenses, food, and transportation, which are expected to be extremely high.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I promise to well-represent CA's 12th Congressional District in Philadelphia.

So Please help me get there!

Hello friends and family!

Here is just a little update about what I've been doing since the Election on November 8.

The results were not as we wished for sure. Pretty gruesome actually.

But many groups have formed to fight the Trump administration.

I am on the vetting team for and we were able to help organize the Women's March as well as 1500 events since then throughout the US.

From those 1500 events many groups have emerged throughout the country to protect women's rights, ensure healthcare for all, climate change, and human rights.

Indivisible is one of these organizations. As is 'Stand Up San Francisco'. We are meeting regularly with Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and her staff, as well as US Senator Dianne Feinstein and her staff.

I am currently leading the effort to form a Renter's Caucus at the California Democratic Party. Our meeting is coming up this Saturday, May 20, in Sacramento. I will let you know more details. Hit me up if you are interested in any of these activities or actions.

Thank you for all that you do!

Dear Friends,

I have been asked by the Hillary campaign to help out at their Brooklyn office. So I am planning to stay another week or two to help with phone banking, outreach, and social media.

If you'd like to help me stay here I would be very, very appreciative. Any amount will do. $25 or even $15. ($50 would be extraordinary).

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
