Statement

It is appalling to me that a party can have the most popular votes, yet not be elected because of gerrymandering. I am excited that Colorado is trying to fix this injustice and would like to be part of the process.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I am a retired social worker. My career as an administrator of a small non-profit organization (The Women's Center, Inc. in Waukesha, WI) gave me experience in working with community members, local, state, and federal governments, and clients. I learned how to successfully collaborate, listen to differing perspectives, and treat all with respect.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

My administrative and managerial position involved daily problem solving, budgeting, grant writing, planning all of which required logic and reason to solve problems.
