Eric Lever    Email

I became a leftist during my college days in Berkeley in the ‘70s.  I participated in the anti-apartheid and nuclear disarmament movements during my school days.  I remained a committed Democrat throughout my 36-year medical career as an Internal Medicine and Gastrointestinal specialist (recently retired).  I moved to OC in 1992, and have lived in Fountain Valley since then. 

I joined the DCWOC in 2016 and have been active in leafleting, canvassing, calling and attending meetings for the Democratic Party for the last 5 years.  I am active in my local Homeowners Association and in Fountain Valley government.  I am also a family business owner.  I have 5 children and 4 grandchildren.  I believe we have to be active to improve the future for ourselves and our children.
