I respectfully request your vote and support for continuity, maturity, responsibility and open communication as a CA Delegate. I have been on the CA Delegation to the GNC since its expansion to 13 Delegates in 2002, first as an Alternate, and then as a Delegate. I am very active with the Delegation, with a near 100% Voting Record on national proposals. I believe strongly in California's continued affiliation and conspicuous and seasoned presence in the Green Party of the United States. I was a Delegate at the Presidential Nominating Conventions in 2000 and 2004. I have been registered Green in CA since 1992.

I take my responsibilities seriously as a delegate, and strive to attend monthly teleconferences, state plenaries and national meetings. I read my email and respond frequently on both the national and internal state delegation lists. I was chosen by the delegation to be "Vote Nanny" or Floor Manager, in order to keep track of the week-long votes, and ensure that the delegation uses our 13 Votes on every proposal, by empowering alternates to participate and vote. I am especially proud that the CA Delegation achieved 13 YES votes on the Delegate Apportionment Proposal, despite some early indications that there were concerns and we lacked consensus. I have been on GPUS Committees, including the Annual Meeting Committee, and currently on the 2008 Platform Committee. I am also a member of the GPUS Women's Caucus, the Lavender Caucus, and the Disability Caucus, and bring minority representation to balance the delegation.
