Why am I running?

I am running for Loyalsock Township Supervisor because I want to bring a fresh perspective to the Board of Supervisors, and having served a term as Township Auditor has prepared me to take the next step in public service.

My Goals

I will help promote Loyalsock in such ways as using social media to reach out and communicate with residents. In addition, I will work to establish a group of citizens to serve in a Citizens Circle which will meet throughout the year to offer their opinions on various issues.

My DFA Values

I have been an active progressive Democrat for many years. I am proud to support equality for all, am pro-choice, and believe government has a role in helping build the community.

My Campaign is People Powered!

My campaign is people powered as everyone on our campaign team is a volunteer. In addition, we are reaching voters through going door to door and phone calls instead of expensive things like television and billboards.

About the Endorsement Process

The driving force behind all DFA endorsements is our members. We recognize that all politics is local and that what is considered progressive in Los Angeles may be very different from what's considered progressive in Louisville. For this reason, DFA does not have a litmus test of specific progressive positions for which a candidate must stand. Our endorsement is heavily weighted based on these questions:

• Will the candidate move the progressive movement forward in their community?
• Does the candidate have substantial support from our local members?
• Do the candidate's positions and policies fit into the broader progressive movement?
• Is the campaign people-powered and the candidate working to win?

If you have questions, or want to let us know about a candidate in your neighborhood, please call us at (802) 651-3200 or email us at [email protected] .
