VP – Merrin Muxlow
Merrin was elected vice-president of the club in 2017. An experienced teacher, tutor, and freelance writer, Merrin felt compelled to become more involved in politics immediately following the 2016 election. She ran and was elected as a delegate to the California Democratic Party, where she will represent the 78th Assembly District at the State Convention until 2018. She is a proud resident of Ocean Beach, an ocean swimmer and yoga practitioner, and the mother of two toddlers. She currently teaches a rigorous writing and rhetorical analysis course for high school students preparing for college entrance exams.
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.
Treasurer – David Furlano
David Furlano has been a resident of Point Loma for over 20 years. His first remembrance of Democratic campaigns was when, in junior high school in New England, he sat at a Democratic booth, handing out fliers for LBJ in 1964 (!).
Dave has an undergraduate degree in pharmacy, and a graduate degree in chemistry. Dave has held positions in FDA, large PhRMA companies as well as executive positions with local San Diego biotech enterprises. More recently, he formed his own consulting company, providing regulatory services to the pharmaceutical industry.
Dave and his spouse Gary have been members of the club for many years. Dave wants to contribute an effort to the club, especially in light of the recent election results.
