Since the beginning of the century I have convinced and registered thousands of folks to register for the Green party while I was signature gathering on numerous petitions.(up to 25 in a day) I even travelled to Arkansas with two others in 2011 in the month of November to qualify the Green party for the ballot personally collecting over 500 signatures on the first day to kick it off. This gathering must be done every time until they get 10% of the vote and they were inching closer. With a couple partners I think we more than quadruped the number of greens in merced county, CA 

Represent.

  • Sonoma county green party council

Am a former San Franciso Public Defender who represented our youth and their families for over eight and a half years. Securing resources to meet their educational and mental health needs is of upmost importance to me and I am currently representing those with developmental needs. I serve on the CA State Bar's Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services to help meet the needs of those who make a dollar more than the federal income guidlines. Am very active in statewide and local politics. 

I believe in the adage that we will be judged by how we treat our most vulnerable. I am particualarily interested in securing preventive services. If we can help our youth have a great start it will be a success for them and for all of us.
