Statement

I admire that our state has delegated to task of redistricting to the residents. I think an informed group, comprised of a broad spectrum of culture, race and party is essential to a healthy democracy. I would love to be part of this fair and balanced process.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I find it most effective ensuring that each person has a voice and a vote, and that the minority opinion has the ability to have a voice. I think that Robert's Rules are very effective in running a meeting. I have lead committee meetings where meeting structure and the ability for people to share freely help me stay neutral as well as others. If our common welfare is the primary goal; the directives of the committee: Robert's Rules helps to achieve that very effectively/
