Eric Swalwell is serving his fourth term representing California’s 15th Congressional District, in the East Bay near San Francisco. Elected to Congress at age 31, he now serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Judiciary Committee, and co-chairs the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.
In his first term he introduced three bills and had two signed into law -more than any other freshman congressman. He has since continued to have great success and has been credited as a leader within the party. Swalwell ran for the Democratic nominee for president focusing heavily on gun control but eventually dropped out. He recently published the book “Endgame: Inside the Impeachment of Donald J. Trump.”
Dennis Mehiel is one of the Democratic Party’s most visionary, effective and experienced leaders in the fields of business, government, politics and philanthropy. His close friends, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and dozens of other national Democratic leaders and Presidential candidates can attest to his vision and effectiveness. He has chaired and been involved with numerous committee’s including the Battery Park City Authority and founded ShowUp in 2018 to increase participation in the 2018 midterm election.
Mehiel’s governmental and political skills arise from decades of business and charitable activities. As Chairman, CEO and principal shareholder of Sweetheart Cup Company – then North America’s largest producer of disposable tabletop products for the “away-from-home dining” market, he brought the Company back from the brink of bankruptcy and preserved 8,000 jobs. During his long career in the corrugated packaging business he twice built the largest independent producer in North America.
