President Benjamin Manzano-Coleman
Mr. Coleman is a lifelong Democrat, and Native Texan, who has dedicated his life to bringing more people into the world of politics. The very first campaign he worked on was in Dallas with his father at the age of 8. Since moving to Tarrant County he has made a big impact working on multiple campaigns, as well as being elected precinct chair of precinct 1094 and as president of TCYD. When asked for a quote to sum up his political career he replied, “it’s all about getting out to people you don’t necessarily think of. We need to be a voice for the Voiceless and make sure no person feels their voice and vote don’t matter because they absolutely do”.
Vice President Stephen O’Toole
Stephen O’Toole is a native Texan and veteran of Navy intelligence who joined right out of high school to serve his country. He is a newcomer to political activism he has been very impactful serving as Precinct Chair, Deputy Voter Registrar, and Election Judge. He is a strong progressive who is passionate about election reform and the importance of fair voting. “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
