Los Altos Hills, California:  The South Peninsula Area Republican Coalition (SPARC) will hold their next Speaker Series Dinner at the Fremont Hills Country Club on Wednesday, January 22, 2020. The featured speaker will be Jonathan Madison, California Republican Party Bay Area Region Vice Chair.

Jonathan Madison, an Oakland attorney, was born and raised in Pacifica.  He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Howard University with distinguished honors.  He subsequently worked in the House of Representatives as a member of the professional policy staff for the Committee on Financial Services.  He managed policy portfolios on housing and oversight issues for the Committee Chairman, and conducted strategy to facilitate the passage of housing reform legislation in the 112th Congress.

Madison then returned to the Bay Area and earned his law degree at the University of San Francisco School of Law.  At the same time, he became active in local Republican politics, serving as president of the San Mateo County Young Republicans, running for State Assembly, and then serving as a vice chair of the San Mateo County Republican Party.  He was a National Review Fellow in 2016. 

After moving to the East Bay, Jonathan was appointed to the Alameda County Republican Central Committee. He does volunteer work as a minister every weekend at the San Francisco County Jail.  Jonathan also serves his community as a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African American men. In February 2018 Jonathan participated in President’s Trump’s commemoration of African American History Month at the White House. Jonathan and his family live in Oakland.

Jonathan Madison said, “It’s time to fix our education system, reduce our state’s tax burden, and strengthen our families.  We will embrace every community, every family, and every individual.”
