A professional editor, writer, and graphic designer, Diana Robinson was elected as chair of NC-CD4 in May 2023. She served as OCDP 3rd vice chair from April 2022 to May 2023, managing eblasts, the website, and social media. She is also vice chair of Eno Precinct, a member of Democratic Women, and a sustaining donor to OCDP. She wants to ensure the openness and inclusiveness of the Democratic Party and to communicate well so others can be meaningful, participating members. Her experience allows her to bring a fresh perspective and share ideas learned elsewhere.
Diana has been actively engaged with the Democratic Party and related organizations since 2004. In 2020, the Texas Democratic Party honored her by electing her as one of the state’s 38 presidential electors. From 2018 to 2021, she served as founding chair of the Kyle/Buda-Area Democrats (Texas), and she served the Hays County Democratic Party (Texas) in the fourth-fastest-growing county in the nation as communications chair, platform committee chair, resolutions committee member, and precinct chair. HCDP awarded her as their 2020 Volunteer of the Year. She helped to reinvigorate the county party, got voters registered and organized, and together with a strong volunteer corps flipped the county to blue in 2018 and 2020.
Before remarrying and moving to Texas, Diana was active with the Durham County Democratic Party from 2004 to 2009 and served as a member of the NCDP’s State Executive Committee for several years. In 2007 she served as secretary for the State Senatorial District 20 Executive Committee. She was a founding member of the Progressive Democrats of North Carolina in 2004 and founding member and president of the Durham County Progressive Democrats (Green Dogs). Diana has also served on the steering committee of the Human Rights Coalition of N.C. and as a volunteer for North Carolinians Against Gun Violence, People of Faith Against the Death Penalty, and the United Nations Association of Wake County.
She is the mother of two young men, both of whom graduated from East Chapel Hill High and Appalachian State University, as well as three rescued cats. Diana received her bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communication from UNC and is a very enthusiastic Tar Heel fan.
