Board of Directors


Steve Natoli, President
Steve Natoli

Steve Natoli voted twice for Hillary Clinton during the fall of 2016. And both votes were legal, the second coming as a member of the Electoral College (earned through his efforts in Tulare County politics and recognition with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the county’s Democratic Party).
Steve was then a history professor at College of the Sequoias. He and wife Joan moved to Rancho Bernardo a year ago, and today he continues his political activism as the newly elected Vice President of the Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club.

Steve holds bachelor degrees in History and Political Science (from Claremont McKenna College) and graduate degrees in Education (Claremont Graduate School) and History (Cal State Fullerton). His book, Liberally Speaking: Why Liberalism Is Right for America, is available on Amazon. The inspiration for that book, by the way, came six years ago during a trip to Rancho Bernardo to see one of his and wife Joan’s two daughters – and a visit to the Barnes & Noble bookstore. Ask Steve to tell you about it.HorizontalLine
