I became a Green in 1992 and my first involvment with the Green Party was
to register new Greens in San Mateo County in order to help achieve ballot
status. I moved to Alameda County in 1998 and by 2000 was heavily involved
in three Green campaigns: Ralph Nader, Medea Benjamin and Rebecca Kaplan.
Soon thereafter I ran for the Alameda County Council and have served there
for three terms. I have learned more about the party in the years since then
as a regular delegate to state plenaries.
My focus has generally been on outreach attempts of several kinds: tabling,
voter registration, monthly Green Party meetings open to the public, participation
in local progressive efforts. I am committed to an independent Green Party
and while I support the notion of working with non Greens on issues I strongly
oppose endorsement of Democratic or other corporate candidates. I also believe
that California should have strong representation to the national party, so
I am applying to be a delegate.
