I believe I’m a unique staff candidate in this election. I am new to programming and staff, as I just began producing and hosting “Working Voices” labor show in May. However, I currently serve on the LSB as a listener. Unlike many of the LSB, I have been deeply involved at the local and national level for the past 5 years. I volunteer with the Outreach Committee canvassing at events and the in-person townhall. I was elected Secretary to the board and served for 2 years in that position. I then eventually joined the board. I have been a member of the local Finance Committee and reconstituted and chair the Fundraising Committee. The changeovers of the GM position recently made it difficult to implement many of the fundraising initiatives. However, I was able to reignite the phone-banking efforts (outreach to elapsed donors) and hold the online holiday auction last fall.
