Clyde Williams' more than 20-year career in public service includes work for two Presidents of the United States, the development of successful public-private sector partnerships in Harlem and nationally, and extensive knowledge of Federal programs that benefit urban communities.
Most recently, Clyde served as National Political Director of the Democratic National Committee, following the historic election of President Barack Obama. He and his wife, Mona Sutphen (who served as the White House Deputy Chief of Staff to President Obama), were instrumental in furthering President Obama's national agenda. During his stint at the DNC, Clyde earned a reputation as a forceful advocate for the President's most loyal supporters within the Democratic Party, including the African-American, Latino, Asian-American and Pacific Islander, women, and LGBT constituencies.
Clyde is currently engaged in a historic primary race to represent New York's 13th Congressional District in Congress.
