don’t like to ask people did you have any influences or a momentous event that said i want to get involved in
politics tree you president of the student body and sixth-grader ninth-grade shirt that’s a big question and actually
the hell out into myself with some of the undergrad graduate students on this day oregon involved the number of ca me
service and projects which later evolved to see an advocacy uh… so she does have cassie lecarre ball with the doctor scott myers
that the named michael coulson works project also had a rule unique opportunity to
tube were cast africa sets a travis connections center earlier uh… we act actual is able to
uh… to leader youth action program with uh… a local uh… downtown
schools to burn etc and we wish to local middle school there damp and family him from getting a really in there for
further involved into an interest in politics just setting up lobby visits a meeting
with state legislators members of congress elected official at the local level just
relieved uh… by committee just kind of mood
keen interest in in politics and poor thing so the gulf coast project you worked
with doctor lipton on um… that had to do with after hurricane
katrina and the fact that the community didn’t get we’ve built to get the attention that
should have absolutely so with that intel does it
was actually a national movement national campaign that we’ll be actually
had a local member of congress congress members a locked room who introduced the bill is a piece of
legislation that essentially uh… credo a modern-day public works
program so all the hundred thousand this place
called coast residents can return back to the region rebuild all the public institutions
themselves now that has an interesting uh…
epilogue the effort didn’t get passed in congress is very
interesting and unfortunately no but there was momentum amongst the
students to take on another project recently you have to leave so that the
query doctor myers that the minister instead was well what they did really was peaked out larger michigan just tiny
room scope will be able to meet you know smith can change here locally view and then we jordans here in the
senate feeds how they feel because it’s not because of effect
tomorrow i think they can uh… worked implement that no city by city on a
regional basis and that passed but i think sixty
percent of the uh… san jose voters saying yes we should raise the minimum wage absolutely slower grabbed her by uh… milk at the gene
that wonderful since this whole estate postpartum confirming that i have a good thing colleen did you have any kind of uh…
interesting projects are mentor sir efforts that line around you lightly-armed nine ever stomach felt
going up all take that wasn’t really the call when i was growing up but uh…
when i went to use it if i was down about finance our and activity going on around wildly in fact about kind of how i started
being involved in uses on campaign demanded that recruited uti davis to i’d
be on the run up all team planning commission and then they happened to me
the terrifying about involved in arson government-owned that
thing uh… united it intersting to fee the power of the students have to make
change and say just a really motivated me to
see where people can do uh… when you have a lot of the midtown and a lot of
energy and passion behind what you’re doing so that way back on my credit and
predicted involves um… with uh… politics and sat with government and um… from there you know i it would be within really a
that often experience for me because that completely changed my major what i
thought i was going to hit by a thin and sit back and that being a pipe a
major and as i plan on onto organising government our state capitol and no here
we are today and and and still working for a local family member and and really
enjoying the work but tell me a little bit about where you
working now coarser start working for a family
member public alfie on his share of the judiciary committee
any represent the twenty th that the family district’s uh… which includes other southern
portion alameda county a free months ends at newark and um… uh… also includes then clerical uh…
we have not peter uh… worse than that they in do you think like that and you work for an elected official to
understand you get some on the actual measurements had to be complements the
side with the synergy reels often solicitor reno’s recently elected this
that the fast-moving burn with community crimi represents a
thirteen senate district describe it so here goes as far north as brisbane
actually cut some daly city but we uh… we have byzantine all it down the planes flew into the
northern portion sankara county more so than tip would be expanded on
them so uh… what do you do what do you do working for an elected
official what do you do for senator church so i i serve as a tool
representative so net well-acted tell folks what amount
of district is that where the eyes in the years the district villarroel wisconsin meeting with the
freemen earthy colours in organizations with their their communications
professional organization bps organization and if they’ve really feel there’s a may

great individuals and organizations do they work in the committee well that sounds of portent by and know
that we all got to know senator hill are now senator hill as a
result of the fire and explosion the tragedy and san bruno uh… recently so looks like he is a
fierce advocate and i’m sure p_g_e_ still quakes when they
see in common asking and you work for uh… assembly member
white casket uh… i don’t bob has a real interest in sometimes arcane subjects but things
that really matter to people matter to people’s lives values that at exeter with that they’ve built last
year had it to with that i think our fee uh… when he’s not sacking of the
family member he still practices law with the bankruptcy attorney that it is
pat’s passing nephew the policy wonk and he thought he still fighting for those
bitches so that’s probably going to be you know
something that comes up for may come up again this year to without being
something he puts wanting to know that he is sure that judiciary needed some another platform three talk to those folks right he’s an attorney uh… will that’s unit bankruptcy attorney here in the
