Dear Fellow Greens; GPCA Coordinating Committee,

Please accept my application as a candidate to serve on the GPCA Coordinating Committee for the 2015-2017 term.
I have been an active, registered (CA) Green since our party's founding in 1990-92 and participated with integrity and earnest intensity in the 1990-1992 registration drive that qualified us for the California ballot. Since then I've been involved with the party in a various campaigns and grassroots efforts, including tabling, voter registration, ballot access campaigns for the Green Party and GP Candidates in several states, marches and demonstrations.
Since 2010, I have been serving on the GPLAC County Council. I also have a background in IT-related tasks, have worked with the GPCA's Cameron Spitzer in this regard since 1999 and in June 2013, was appointed to the GPCA IT Committee.
In May 2012, I was elected to the Coordinating Committee to fill the second year of an unfilled two-year term, then elected to a two-year term in 2013. Even before I was elected, I felt that my experience with Green values and my patience in understanding the challenges in implementing them in the real world, would serve me well as part of the Coordinating Committee.
I enjoyed my time on the Coordinating Committee, but was only able to participate in some of the meetings, because of my ongoing work obligations most Mondays...However, I would like to run again for the Coordinating Committee and participate as much as my work schedule will allow.
Sincerely, In Solidarity for the Earth,
Sasha Karlik
