Assistant Treasurer/Special Projects
Hi, I’m Deniese Chaney, Assistant Treasurer of the Orange County Democratic Party. A native Tarheel, an avid classic car enthusiast, amateur photographer, and lifelong lover of the UNC Tarheels; I graduated with a Master of Public Health from the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. I spent 25 years at UNC Chapel and another 20+ in healthcare management and IT consulting.
I was driven to become politically active after the 2016 elections, realizing I could no longer remain on the sidelines. I believe that as Democrats, we must use all our energy to share our accomplishments, win over voters, and combat misinformation if we expect to have a democracy after the 2024 elections. I am committed to this agenda and am bringing my energy and support to the Orange County team to help turn North Carolina Blue and expand our leadership in Washington. Please join with us in making this happen.
