Here is some information about Eleni Kounalakis:
The former business woman and Ambassador served as President of AKT Development Corporation, one of California’s largest land development firms. She was nominated by President Obama to serve as Ambassador to Hungary. She served in that capacity from 2010 to 2013 – the first Greek American woman Ambassador in U.S. history. For 10 years, she served as a trustee of the World Council of Religions for Peace. In recognition of her work with the WCRP, she was awarded the Medal of St. Paul, the Greek Orthodox Church of America’s highest honor.
As Lieutenant Governor she will serve as President of the California Senate and will either sit on or appoint representatives to, many of California’s regulatory commissions and executive agencies, which will give her the chance to advance the agenda she is most passionate about – early childhood education, affordable college education, healthcare for all, and immigration reform that will save the DREAMers. Ms. Kounalakis has stated, “I will use the lieutenant governor’s office to stand up for California’s working families and as a bully pulpit to stand up to the biggest bully in American – Donald Trump.”
