Our Executive Board

Joshua Sam Lapidus
 President

Joshua recently moved to McKinney, TX from Arlington, Virginia to raise his son near family. He works in blockchain tech, and if you're unlucky enough to survive a policy discussion, he's sure to tell you all about it. He brings over ten years of experience in Democratic campaigns (some big wins: Obama '08, Warren '12, Bullock '16) and is dead set on flipping Collin County back to its rightful color: BLUE. 

Suzie Miller
Vice-President

Suzanne "Suzie" Miller recently moved to the county in May 2019, from Chicago. She attended her first Young Dems meeting in July 2019, but never expected this to propel her into a career. Suzie serves as Communications Director on a number of primary campaigns, is the co-founder and President of the newly formed Anna-Melissa Dems, and registers voters with several organizations in her spare time. Suzie is here to register voters and win!

Brant Beland
Treasurer

Brant moved to Collin County from the Chicagoland area in May 2109. His first Young Dems meeting was in July 2019 and since then he has taken on multiple political roles throughout the county. In addition to being CCYD's treasurer, he is the Treasurer on several campaigns, co-founded the Anna-Melissa Dems, serves on the Board of his HOA, and registers voters with several organizations on the side. Brant is here to collect your dues and win!

Matt Leahy
Secretary

Matt Leahy first got involved in political campaigns in 2010 as a sophomore at Richardson High School. Since then, Matt has been volunteer and staff for over a dozen candidates in Collin, Dallas and El Paso Counties. He also worked in Macomb County, Michigan for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general election. Matt is currently the Collin County Field Organizer for Mike Bloomberg 2020, and a precinct chair of the Collin County Democratic Party.

Kevin Numerick

Kevin didn't submit his bio because he thinks you all already know him very well, so here goes: Originally from Michigan, Kevin is a professional photographer turned campaign organizer and strategist. Kevin is currently the Principal of Nerio Strata, the only political consulting firm to win a race inside Collin County, and has a very strong slate of candidates.
