Speaker's Bios

Catherine Price

Professionally Catherine Price was a public health administrator and nurse that spent past twenty years working to increase access to healthcare for people in Polk County, Florida.  Her driving political motivation is that many hardworking people in Polk County go without the medical care that they need because they either lack access to care or it is too expensive.  In 2018, she ran for Florida Senate District 26 and since that time has taken an active role in the Polk County Democratic Party. 

In December of 2020, she was elected to be Chair of the Polk County Democratic Executive Committee (DEC), the decision-making body of the Democratic Party in Polk.   Catherine knows that we are facing tough issues with regards to our economy, education, healthcare and our environment.  We are at a critical juncture in Florida and in the world.  Democracy thrives in an environment where people stand up and fight for the things that are important to them. 

As Chair of the Polk County DEC, she is working to build a strong human and electronic political infrastructure capable of winning elections in Polk County, FL.
