Laura Calvo, the Treasurer of the Democratic Party of Oregon, recently became the first transgender woman elected to the Democratic National Committee. “Everyone who’s worked with Laura Calvo knows what I know – she’s a superstar,” Chair of the Democratic Party of Oregon Meredith Wood Smith said in a statement. “We couldn’t be prouder to have her represent the Democratic Party of Oregon as a member of the Democratic National Committee.” She was one of three members from Oregon elected to the committee at the Party’s State Central Committee meeting on Dec. 9, according to a press release from the party on Wednesday. Calvo, a former paramedic and sheriff’s deputy, has also served as the Treasurer of the Party's LGBT Caucus, Treasurer of the Multnomah County Democrats and board member of the National Stonewall Democrats.
