I'm a 20+ year strategic planner, public policy analyst, and community organizer
focusing primarily on renewable energy and air quality related issues. I've
served as the regional director of a statewide environmental non-profit, in
elected office as an environmental planning deputy, for a regional air quality
agency as a senior public information specialist, and in the private sector
advancing renewable energy projects and programs. I served as a Green public
office holder as a Director of the Resource Conservation District of the Santa
Monica Mountains from 2001 to 2007 (an LA County Supervisor-appointed office).
I'm currently working with municipalities on deployment of clean renewable fuel
municipal vehicle fleets. I serve on the Board of Directors of the Riverside,
CA based non-profit Clean Air Now; serve as an appointed member of the Bay Area
Metropolitan Transportation Agency's Citizens Advisory Council where I have established
a Sustainable Transportation Subcommittee for which I serve as Chair; and serve
as an appointed member of the San Francisco Peak Oil Preparedness Task Force.
Education: BA, Environmental Studies
3) Please describe your vision for serving as GPUS Delegate including addressing
the job description for GPUS Delegate.
First and foremost I want to do a good job of representing San Francisco and California
at large to the GPUS. I want to help develop a stable, functional, efficient,
responsive and accountable national Party organization that gets things
done; I want to help foster the development of robust GPs in
all fifty states; I want to help reclaim for the GP many of the issues
for which, in many cases, we have been the sole champions, but for which
we do not get credit/recognition. My intention for this term is to make
a renewed commitment to take part in the discussion of proposals before the GPUS
CC, participate in the monthly teleconferences, and attend delegation
meetings at State General Assemblies.
