David Gesinger, Application for Delegate, Green Party of the United States

I joined the Costra Costa County Green Party in the fall of 2010. I believe I reflect the views of the majority of the public; I am not happy with the way the two dominant political parties are expressing the will of the people in the political sphere. I decided to joint the Green Party as a result of the international and national platform and a life ling desire to become politically active in a substantial way.

I would like to see the Green party become a genuine third party taking the center of the voting block (Those voters who are neither stanchly Democrat or Republican). Please review the attached CV for a better understanding of the talents and experience I can bring to the party.
