Second Vice Chair – Bev Dransfeldt
The Second Vice Chair is the ranking officer of the Central Committee in the absence or inability of the Chair and First Vice Chair to act.
Bev Dransfeldt is a first-generation immigrant having grown up in a small central valley town. Camarillo became her second home in college and fell in love with it so much she made it her permanent home. Bev is a mother and married to her husband, Cory.
Bev serves as the 2nd Vice Chair of the Ventura County Democratic Central Committee and represents the 3rd Supervisorial District as an Elected Member.
In 2020, Bev made history as the first Latina elected to the Pleasant Valley Recreation & Parks Board of Directors.
A graduate in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley, the first of her family to graduate from a four year university, Bev has been a music industry manager and later moved into the public sector, mixing her passion for the arts and public service by working in the Cultural Affairs Department for the City of Thousand Oaks and recently as a Recreation Specialist for Pleasant Valley Recreation & Parks District.
Raised on a farm in a small town and working in the fields with her immigrant mother, Bev is keenly aware of her blessings and seeks to “pay it forward” by advocating for those without a voice and remaining politically active within the community.
