1) Please list any prior or current positions, related experience, and/or personal
and professional skills within of the Green Party that you have, that apply
to this position.
I am applying for my third term as a delegate on this committee. I have been
a Green Party member for about 12 years. I have served three-2 year terms as
an elected county council member and have attended over a dozen state meetings
as a delegate from my county and have served on the state credential committee
twice and participated in delegate election committees four times.
I attended my first national meeting in Washington, DC as an observer. I was
a nominating convention delegate at the Milwaukee presidential convention and
that December ran as an alternate to the GPCA delegation and in May 2005 ran
as a delegate. I attended annual meetings in Tulsa and Tucson and then was
elected as the delegation co-chair. I was re-elected to the delegation in May
2007 and reelected as co-chair at our first state meeting after attending the
national meeting in Philadelphia. I attended the 2008 Presidential Convention
and Annual National meeting in Chicago and at that meeting, I was elected as
one of the seven co-chairs of GPUS.
I am a member of the International Committee and the National Women’s
Caucus, and have served as its webmaster.
2) Please list any prior or current positions, related experience, and/or personal
and professional skills outside of the Green Party that you have, that apply
to this position.
In the rest of my life, I am a teacher (active in my union at the local (webmaster),
state, and national level), permaculture designer, political/social activist
since the 70's, and co-creator of the San Mateo Ecovillage. See www.greensolutions.org
for more about me. I think of myself as a planetary citizen, love to travel,
and am fortunate that my husband works for United Airlines. I look forward
to retiring in 2009 so that I can be a full-time activist.
3) Please describe your vision for serving as GPUS Delegate including addressing
the job description for GPUS Delegate.
I think my record speaks to this question.
