I am a veteran, retired with 22 years of service in the USAF as a Signals Intelligence Analyst and retired from 13 and a half years as an employee of Clark County Nevada in 2009 where I was a child support case manager and trainer. During my employment with Clark County I was a union steward and trustee with SEIU Local 1107. I took a full time position with SEIU Local 1107 in Feb 2009 as the training coordinator and special projects and am retiring from this position at the end of June 2012.
I am active in the anti war movment in Las Vegas and have been since the beginning of the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. My step son is an active duty soldier who has served in Afghanistan and Iraq. I have helped organize anti war demostrations in Las Vegas and been the media spokesperson for one of the anti war groups i have belonged to here. I am an active member of Veterans for Peace, Nevada Workers Against the War, and other anti war pro labor groups in Las Vegas.

I became involved with Occupy Las Vegas in the summer of 2011 and watched it fall apart due to political agendas of different splinter groups. I was arrested for an act of civil disobedience with Occupy Las Vegas on November 17, 2011 in the day of action.

I have become totally disillusioned with the democrats and changed my voter registration to Socialist in 2010. I will activity support the Nevada Desert Experience upon my retirement and participate in their anti nuke and anti war actions.

I am a third generation union member orginally coming from the thriving steel town of Steubenville, Ohio, which has declined with the downfall of heavy industry in America. I strongly support organized labor and believe unions need to change their focus from blind support for democrats to creating a new workers party to really support the economic, political, and social well being of the working class, working poor, poor and elderly.
