National Committeeman Candidate

Daniel K Jacob

My name is Daniel Jacob. I am asking for your vote to be Hawaii‘s male representative on the Democratic National Committee.

The preamble of our Party’s Charter provides that in order to “call forth the best the Nation can achieve” our Party must acknowledge that: (1) “a political party which wishes to lead must listen to those it would lead;” and (2) “a party which asks for the people’s trust must prove that it trusts the people.”

I am so fortunate to have connected with so many of you to begin listening and building our trust. Nevertheless, there are some of you I still have not personally connected with.  As your only Democratic National Committeeman, I will be determined to continue to reach out, listen, and build our trust. We must in order to call forth the best our Nation can achieve.

I am the only candidate in this race who is determined to bring home more financial resources to our State and County Parties. The Democratic National Committee has over one hundred million dollars, yet the Democratic Party of Hawaii can barely operate on its resources. I will work hard with the Chair, Vice-Chair and Democratic National Committeewoman to both fundraise at home and prove to our National Party that an investment in our State and County Parties is an investment in our Nation’s future.

There is still time for us to connect. Please do not hesitate to contact me! I am still trying to call all 615 of you.

I hope I can count on your vote and support online this Saturday and Sunday. With our trust we will call forth the best our Nation can achieve.


More about me:
Congratulations on your election as a delegate! It is unfortunate that we all can’t be together at our state convention.

I was born into a Democratic political family.  My family taught me that the Democratic Party is the most important organization of people on this planet. I wholeheartedly believe that to be true. If our Party is successful in electing good leaders, our entire planet will be more equal, peaceful, tolerant, clean and safe.  

Hawaii only has one male and female national committee position.  It is critical that they be available to everyone and promote the Democratic Party of Hawaii as one.  In order to have the necessary resources to effectively operate our state and county operations, it is also critical that they be effective and non-divisive members of Democratic National Committee. As your National Committeeman, I promise to deliver on these critical requirements and protect our Party’s Aloha. 

I am the only candidate in this race who is determined to bring home more financial resources to our State and County Parties. The Democratic National Committee has over one hundred million dollars, yet the Democratic Party of Hawaii can barely operate on its resources. I will work hard with the Chair, Vice-Chair and Democratic National Committeewoman to both fundraise at home and prove to our National Party that an investment in our State and County Parties is an investment in our Nation’s future.

I am currently serving in my seventh year as a member of the Oahu County Democrats Executive Committee as Assistant Secretary. I have been a member of the State Central Committee for the last four years as a representative from the 11th and now 12th Senatorial Districts.  I have been employed as a Deputy Attorney General for the State of Hawaii for eight years, representing various divisions within the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority, and the Law Enforcement Officer Independent Review Board.  I am currently the Chair of the Government Lawyers Section and a member of the Civics Education Committee of the Hawaii Bar Association. I serve as secretary of my homeowner’s association. I am a committed member of the Waikiki Beach Boys Canoe Club.  

If I am elected to be your National Committeeman, I will make it my top priority. I fully understand the duties and obligations that are demanded to be your only National Committeeman. I ask you for your support, so that we – Hawaii – can show our country what it truly means to be a Democrat and work for the benefit of all. 

As your National Committeeman I will make time to listen to you all. Please call me so that I can hear your concerns, and we can discuss how to make the Democratic Party of Hawaii the best it can be. 

Aloha and mahalo nui loa for your consideration.

Sincerely, 

Daniel K. Jacob
