I offer myself as a candidate for a position as an alternate national delegate
from California. I have served on the County Council of Alameda County for
two terms, as a delegate to the state plenaries, and as an organizer for the
local chapter in the City of Alameda. I have previously assisted the Alameda
County treasurer during his absences from the county. I attended the national
party convention as a California delegate in 2000 (Denver).
I have been active in the struggles for peace and justice, anti-apartheid,
poor people’s movement, health care reform for single payer, and electoral
reform. I served as treasurer for San Francisco Neighbor-to-Neighbor for the
Proposition 186 campaign for single payer health care in 1994. I worked as
a Community Organizer for the California Nurses Association from 1996 – 2002,
assisting in numerous collective bargaining, legislative and regulatory campaigns.
I participated in anti-toxics work with the Toxic Links Coalition and its constituent
groups, and helped to shut down the medical waste incinerator on High Street
(Oakland), in 2001. I was supportive of the Green Party's campaigns: Audie
Bock for State Assembly, Nader 2000 and Rebecca Kaplan's run for Oakland City
Council in the same election. I have served several terms as a member of the
Restoration Advisory Board for the clean-up at Alameda Point (formerly Alameda
Naval Base) from 1999 - 2004.
I am currently employed as an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Samuel Merritt
University and practice nursing with a home health agency. I see my role as
an alternate as a way to contribute my time, vision, and strategic experience
toward the growth of the party at the national level, particularly in the area
of health care reform.
