Former Obama Campaign Official Killed in Car Accident

A former Obama campaign worker and her wife lost their lives in a car accident in California last week.

NBC Bay Area news reported that Peggy Moore and her wife Hope Wood were killed while riding in a Jeep pickup when it collided with a Chrysler sedan in San Diego County at about 11:15 p.m. Friday.

The East Bay Stonewall Democratic Club revealed in a Facebook post that the two died together in the crash. 

“We at East Bay Stonewall Democratic Club are devastated to hear of the passing of our past President Peggy Moore and her wife, Hope Wood. Moore was a force of change in Oakland and the East Bay,” the post read.

According to her LinkedIn page, the 60-year-old previously managed the 2014 campaign of former Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, worked as a senior consultant on Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton’s campaign, and was the Political Director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential primary campaign in California.

In 2019, the couple founded Hope Action Change, an organizational development consultancy and coaching firm.
