I am a lifelong Democrat who began active campaign work at 14 years old for Robert Kennedy in 1968. Over the years, Ive worked on many campaigns in many capacities. From 2007-2016, I worked closely with the Hillary Clinton Campaign, took several seminars to hone my skills, and stayed active during the 2018 elections. As a House Party presenter, I have raised money, signed up volunteers, and trained new recruits to canvass effectively
I was born in Los Angeles, CA and moved with my parents to Portland, OR in 1967. I attended Woodrow Wilson High School and received a Bachelor of Music in Education from the University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music. I taught public school music for 10 years then wrote two self-improvement books (Pardon My Dust...I'm Remodeling, and Ready, Willing & Terrified, a Coward's Guide to Risk-Taking), spent 3 years touring the country, speaking, giving workshops and talk-show interviews. In 1992, after studying 3 years for the ministry, my wife and I pioneered the Portland Center for Spiritual Growth, a worship center in Portland, Oregon. We retired from active church ministry in 2016. I also founded and directed the DragonScales Choir, a mixed community singing group, for 5 years. We invented a cat product and manufacture and sell it out of our home; we also run an AIRBNB out of our finished basement. We have one son (married and long out on his own), 2 cats and a dog. Life is awesome!
It feels like the right next step for my political life. I want to serve my community.

I have been an active voter since I was 18 and have worked with community groups like the Gay and Lesbian Archives and Books to Prisoners but am new to the more formal party-oriented form of politics. I’m excited to learn more and be engaged.
I work in a middle school to support kids with social and emotional needs. I am constantly thinking about the impending climate crisis and have spent the last several weeks coordinating with 350PDX to host the student climate strike and demand an Oregon Green New Deal. As a queer woman I’m also concerned with lgbt rights.
I am looking forward to being directly engaged with the party process and learning more about our democratic systems.

The 6th of 7 children, I was born in Wisconsin, but grew up in California bay area. As an adult, I moved with my husband and children to Gresham, OR 31 years ago and I am still here. Single since 2002 I ran for City Council. Today I am a mother of 4 grown children, 3 grandchildren. From childhood, throughout my life I have volunteered in numerous ways. We were a poor family growing up with a single mother. When food ran low, many people & churches helped us with food boxes and clothing. It is important to me to give back whenever I can help others. Professionally: Employed over 10 1/2 years by a small Aerospace Manufacturer, as Manager of Quality Assurance & Export Compliance, an FAA appointed DMIR. I have enjoyed full time employment, 28 years in Title Insurance & Escrow and now Aerospace close to 11years. The past 29 years I have been continuously employed except for brief 6 months of unemployment June-Dec. 2008 due to recession layoff. Volunteer Work: Currently appointed to Mt. Hood Cable Regulatory Commission representing Gresham; formerly a Gresham City Councilor elected to one-4 year term 2003 thru 2006 prior to and following time on City Council. I have served on many committees in Gresham and representing Gresham.
I have volunteered for many Democratic Campaigns: Laurie Monnes Anderson's 1st run for the OR State Senate; Jeff Merkely and Barrack Obama 2008; Dianne McKeel County Commissioner; Ted Wheeler Portland Mayoral race. These last two non-partisan races for known Democrats. Other: I began volunteering in 1995 as a Gresham Neighborhood Mediator 3yrs East Metro Mediation. Total of approx. 14-15 years of continuous volunteer work, I stepped away to care for my elderly Mother, and teenage children - family first. Now, I am a newly appointed MHCRC Commissioner.
I wish to become active and participate in my local community Democratic Party, and do what I can to help Elect more Democrats. Thank you.

36FRichardAbigailAllen
Actor, poet, punk. BA Reed College 1984, MA UW 1990. My great grandmother got Bradley the D nomination for mayor of Los Angeles. My mother was investigated by the FBI for her fair housing work, after which we lived in Canada for 7 years. My grandfather wrote The Time Machine, 1960. I've lived in France, India, and Puerto Rico.
I worked for the King County Democrats as the 1st Field Canvass Director and then was the 2nd Field Canvass Director/Phone Bank Director in the mid 1980s. We developed a voter list so good the state party broke in and stole it. As far as I can tell, we were far ahead of our time and still ahead of this time. I also worked at the legislature in Olympia a couple times. I ran a phone bank for a peace newspaper in Seattle mid 1980s. Belonged to OSPIRG early 1980s. Member of first WashPIRG canvass, 1982. Worked for Puget Sound Cooperative Federation briefly, also 1980s. Proud (though inactive) member UFCW.
Election of a lifetime coming up. I answered the call when I was young. We saw what was coming. Now it's time to go all out again.

I’m a white, 61 year old cisgendered male person who has had a number of formative experiences that might be relevant in describing myself but not nearly as important to me as what I do next. My bills are paid from money earned as a self-employed piano voicing technician. This has been the case for 45 years. Piano factories in Europe have paid to give me training to work and solve piano problems with some the most renowned pianists in the world. I’m trying to semi-retire myself so I can give more time to engaging with people, hoping to lower fear, and strengthen our community. When Trump was elected, my partner and I decided to start in our home a political action group composed of neighbors and friends. For two years we have used an organization methodology that we call “The Portland Method”. It is based on elements of neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, sociocracy, and holacracy. It is designed from the ground up to structurally protect participants from autocratic dynamics in which an individual finds themselves being ruled, without their consent, by someone else’s private preferences. In short, we call this dynamic “nonconsensual stipulation.” Organizational decisionmaking has been one of my most passionate hobbies since I was a planning commissioner in California for 4 years about 25 years ago, and experienced myself as part of the problem, not the solution. I am convinced that Robert’s Rules of Order must be laid aside. The Portland Method is my proposal to replace it. It is still in beta version but our experience so far has been promising. I was part of the central organizing committee of Occupy PDX. It was a mostly sad, but intensely educational experience. I’m grateful for it. In California, I was chair of the largest voter ballot initiative in San Luis Obispo county’s history. We worked to save Open Space and Agricultural Resources from strips malls and opportunistic profiteers looking to convert the commons into money in their pocket. It was a mostly sad, but intensely educational experience. I’m grateful for it. My deepest political concern so far has been to work to find a way that humanity can be better members of the community of life on this earth. Sadly, as a species, we are increasingly IMO finding ourselves, due to our behavior, being disinvited to be here. Narratives of meaningful existence will likely be the rarest of resources in the future world we are constructing.
None, except for the tangential connections described above.
I want to use what is left of our democratic structure to advocate for Andrew Yang, and the policies that he proposes. And also infuse new life and hope into the possibilities we have to learn and grow as a people, solving problems and making decisions together in groups.

I am a native Oregonian. I grew up in Eastern Oregon. I am a graduate of Portland State University with a BS in Political Science. I worked in the property casualty insurance for over 30 years. I am retired now and taking time to consider my next career.
I was a Page in the Oregon Senate for the 1981 and 1983.
These are tiring times and we all must do what we can. I am interested in politics on both a national and state local level. I think I can bring much to the position of PCP, and would love the opportunity.
