Background

Past Political Activity

List of Political and Civic Organizations belonged to

I have never belonged to any political organizations. I did apply to and was hired by the US Census, but was unable to attend training and was no longer considered for the position.

I have never been a part of a group that was advocating for a particular group. I do follow some organizations on Facebook and Twitter to stay informed on issues.

Statement

I believe that change is necessary and that it starts by providing everyone with a voice. A legislator or representative is only effective if they truly represent their constituents. I think it is important that people feel their voice is heard and serving on this commission would allow me to feel like I am helping my community to have it's voice heard.

Statement on Working with Consensus

I always try to be a proponent of equality. I enjoy the opportunity to be a part of discussions that lead to changes. I like to look at situations and determine how best to serve the greater good. There is never a solution that will make everyone happy, but there is always a way to present the positives and create pro-active conversations that allow people to voice their opinions. I try to be fair and impartial, but everyone will have a different perception as to what they consider fair and impartial. I can only tailor my message in the hopes that my goal was to be fair and impartial.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

I previously was employed as a 911 dispatcher. I was required to take several calls simultaneously and determine the required response and speed for each. I feel that I am able to analyze situations and create solutions. I enjoy the opportunity to seek feedback. Its a great feeling to incorporate other solutions or deconstruct ideas and utilize portions that are helpful.
