Organization and Advocacy Experience

In Colorado none. Decades ago I volunteered with the National Organization of Women in Chicago, Illinois during the attempt to ratify that state for the Equal Rights Amendment.

Statement

To save democracy in Colorado. Gerrymandering allows the fringe elements of a party to win nominations. This foments polarization. My ideal would be to have every district be "competitive" which would force candidates toward the center - where most Coloradans are.

Statement on Working with Consensus

The most valuable lesson which I learned as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Africa was that if you do not understand why a person is holding to a particular position it is because you are measuring them by your paradigm and not their own. The native American expression which was passed on to me by my father and reflect this idea is, "Do not criticise a person until you you have walked a mile in their moccasins."

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

As an Air Force Officer I attend and graduated from the USAF school for Aircraft Accident Prevention and Accident Investigation. This taught how to determine the cause of an accident based on a twisted pile of metal using logic and evidence.
