I want to see congressional districts be created without bias.
I will promote consensus by looking at facts and data. This process should be data driven, leaving all bias at the door. I was employed as a statistician for the Census Bureau managing statistical programs for 23+ years and for the National Agricultural Statistical Service analyzing data for 4 years. One of the key foundations of federal statistics is to remove bias and document statistical methodologies. After looking at data for these many years my brain has been hard wired to be objective and while reviewing data and to use critical thinking to question bias. My experience as a statistician makes it natural for me to be fair and impartial.
As a statistician a large part of my job was to analyze data. When data looked suspicious the job of the statistician is to research further to figure out if data are correct and explain the suspect trend. Analyzing, questioning, and researching data was daily task. As a statistician I worked on the requirements, development, and testing of various compute systems for our statistical use. These tasks required analytical and problem solving skills. In addition, I am proficient in programming in SAS, a statistical programming language. To be successful in computer programming requires analytical and programming skills.
