VP – Merrin Muxlow
Secretary – Deborah Currier
Like many of her generation, Deborah’s interest in politics began with John F. Kennedy’s presidency. At 14, she was ecstatic to see him in her hometown of Ft. Worth, Texas, then an hour later profoundly shattered by his death. She joined the Young Democrats and has since remained an active campaigner for liberal causes.
Deborah studied journalism at UT-Austin, worked as a newspaper reporter, columnist, commercial artist, and finally as an engineering draftsman, technical writer and editor at General Dynamics’ Ft. Worth aircraft division. She studied studio art at UCSD after her husband Phil transferred to the company’s San Diego electronics division in 1985.
After her San Diego neighborhood of Del Mar Heights redistricted to CA-49, she campaigned for Dave Peiser, who later appointed her as a delegate to the California Democrats State Convention. In 2015, she joined the Point Loma Democratic Club because it serves an area similar to her own and is such an outstanding club.
Deborah is an avid reader of early American history and the life of George Washington and devotes as much time as possible to her son, two stepdaughters, and ten grandchildren.
