Susan B. Magee lived in California most of her life before embarking on life-changing experiences in Washington state and Washington, D.C., that gave her a front-row seat to politics. She is now state co-chair for No Labels in the Golden State.
With a degree in international relations from Pomona College in Claremont, California, Susan first moved to Washington, D.C., as a White House Fellow during the administration of former President Gerald Ford. The mayor of Seattle then appointed her to a position advocating for women’s rights in the workplace. Later, she moved back to Washington, D.C., to work at the U.S. Department of Commerce, crafting urban and regional policy during the administration of President Jimmy Carter. She also worked in the policy office of the U.S. Treasury Secretary.
Susan says, “I have watched what has happened to our U.S. Congress. There has never been such a divisive time in America for people having different opinions. The way people demonize each other and the way politicians hold on to their power offends me to my core. No Labels is the only group that has successfully brought people together.”
She’s particularly concerned about America’s ever-increasing debt and lackluster border and immigration policy.
Now, back in California, Susan says: “I want a choice of folks in the center who have the good of all Americans in mind, not just those in their power base. A Unity ticket addresses what most people are seeking.”
