I am a candidate for Area Leader in Area 8 (previously Area 9) which encompasses Northern Ft. Lauderdale, Oakland Park, and Wilton Manors.
I have been a precinct committeewoman in Ft. Lauderdale for the last four years. I was a Neighborhood Team Leader for Obama in 2008, and am now a volunteer Community Organizer for Organizing for America. I am a member of several Democratic Clubs in NE Broward and was on the Board of Directors for the Dolphin Democrats in 2010.
Throughout 2009, I led the volunteer effort in Broward County to get Fair Districts petitions signed and was thrilled we not only got Fair Districts Amendments 5&6 on the ballot, but that they both passed.
During the last election cycle, I worked passionately to organize volunteers in NE Broward to get out the Democratic vote. Working with the Florida Democratic Party’s Coordinated Campaign for all our Democratic candidates in NE Broward, I hosted numerous phone banks and canvasses with the generous assistance of Ken Evans and Tim Ross who provided venues for us. While we didn’t win any of the seats we worked on, I am more committed than ever to the election of Democratic candidates. This year, I am continuing to provide opportunities for volunteers to get together to share ideas and stay active politically as we prepare for the 2012 effort.
I have been endorsed by Area Leaders Ken Evans, Ron Mills, Bernie Parness and Cynthia Busch as well as our former Area Leader Tim Ross who is now the Corresponding Secretary for the Broward DEC.
As your Area Leader, I pledge to keep you informed on local, state, and national issues. I will support you in getting out the vote in your precinct, working with you to make sure you have all the tools you need. I will coordinate our efforts with other Area Leaders, Democratic Clubs and Organizing for America.
I urge you to attend the Broward DEC meeting and vote for me for your Area Leader.
