Please tell us a little about yourself.

I attended UTSA, finishing in '78. I volunteered and ran various campaigns over the yrs. Moved to Austin to attend the LBJ School. Before attending, I worked for 1 yr in the legislature for Frank Madla. In '86 moved to Santa Rosa, CA for 12 years. What a difference it is living in a liberal county/state. While there I ran my last campaign, then went to law school. I practiced law for approx 5 yrs. I stopped shortly after my mom died. We moved back to TX where I have been unsuccessful in finding jobs, usually overqualified or too democrat. I've had one decent job working for a repub atty in Bastrop for 3 yrs, but nothing since. I spend most of my time helping friends and family out, supporting democratic candidates.

Why are you joining this group?

I live in an extremely conservative town. I need an outlet for speaking my liberal views without fearing repercussions. It is delightful to learn there is such a group in existence in the conservative wasteland called TX. lol.

This group is for TRUE liberals or progressives. Anyone else would feel very uncomfortable. Would you describe yourself as a liberal or progressive both economically and socially?

I am a liberal through and through . I am not an extremist except where abortion rights are concerned. I've always been an activist in supporting the rights of others. I call people on racist or bigoted opinions, in fact have lost friends/family for doing it. I support equality for everyone.


Hi! I was born & raised in SA. Moved to northern CA for 12 yrs, then returned to TX. We lived in Cedar Creek, east of Austin, for 12 yrs, and now live in New Braunfels. Married since 86, no kids. Not currently working.
