My political involvement began in 1956 when I voted for Adlai Stevenson for President. I was 18 at the time. The Democratic party always seemed to me as the party that had the program for working people and was committed to seeing that government whould provide those basic things that people needed to live. Everyone can be participants through cooperation and those who are unable to provide for themselves are also provided for without exception.
Throughout my professional career, I was always involved with volunteer work in the political, social and civil rights arena. Much of my social activism is done as a United Methodist following Wesleyan Theology of faith and good works being the different sides of a single coin.
I am presently the vice chair of the Third District of the Democratic Party. I have served as a precinct officer off and on since 1968. I have been a delegate to the 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 Democratic National Conventions.
