Sri Preston Kulkarni is a proven leader who has been serving his family, community, and country for his entire life. Growing up, he saw the inequities between the lower-income communities where he lived and the affluent neighborhood where he was bused to school, and decided to become involved in public service. Following college, Sri was commissioned as a Foreign Service Officer by Secretary of State Colin Powell and served his country for 14 years, with overseas tours in Iraq, Israel, Russia, Taiwan, and Jamaica. Sri speaks Spanish, Hindi, Mandarin Chinese, Hebrew, and Russian. He has spent his career using his skills and education to find common ground between groups in conflict, such as Arabs and Kurds or Israelis and Palestinians, and standing up for the truth, including combatting the Russian government’s online misinformation campaign. In 2017, Sri completed a mid-career master’s degree in public administration from Harvard’s Kennedy School, where he was vice president for communications. Following the divisive 2016 presidential election, Sri and a Republican colleague founded a bipartisan initiative called “Breaking Bread,” which aims to reduce the partisan hostility in our society, that has been repeated in several states. Sri is committed to fighting for true universal health care, the passage of a clean Dream Act, and the restoration of the Voting Rights Act.
