Independent candidate for Governor of Vermont in 2004.
Twice widowed, I have five children and seven grandchildren. Raising my children was my most important work. I have a BA in Biology and an MS in Nutrition. In the business field I have worked as an administrative assistant and as an office manager and bookkeeper. In the scientific field I worked as a research technician. My distress and my anger at the mess my generation and my children's generation have left all of our grandchildren caused me to become politically active. I was on the ballot as a candidate for Governor of Vermont in 2002. The encouragement of many people has led me to stand as a candidate once again.
