Today, Zoe represents the 19th District of California, based in the “Capital of Silicon Valley”,
San Jose, and encompassing parts of Santa Clara County stretching towards Morgan Hill and Gilroy to the south. The district is rich in culture — with its residents speaking nearly 60 different languages — and has the distinction of having the largest Hispanic population of any district in the Bay Area and the largest concentration of Vietnamese Americans in the country.
In addition to representing the 19th district, Zoe was elected by her colleagues to serve as the Chair of the California Democratic Congressional Delegation — consisting of thirty-nine Democratic Members of the House of Representatives from California. It is the most diverse delegation in the House and outnumbers all other state House delegations. Zoe is also a senior Member of the DCCC’s candidate recruitment team, where she helped to recruit top-tier Democratic candidates in over 100 targeted districts around the country as part of our successful effort to win a Democratic House Majority in November 2018 — and protect it in 2020.
And in January 2021, Zoe was once again chosen by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to Chair the House Administration Committee — a position often referred to as the “Mayor of Capitol Hill”.
