Biography

Background

I’m a fifteen year resident of Arlington County and have spent more than twenty-five years in the Washington, D.C. area, including a year on Capitol Hill as a Congressional Fellow for the 100th Congress, where I was employed by the House Education subcommittee that provides oversight for federal programs for the handicapped.

In 1993 I received a Ph.D. in Political Science from Temple University with a specialization in American voting behavior. As a doctoral candidate I spent several years teaching Political Science and introductory statistics.

Civic Involvement
I am a long time Arlington civic activist and independent thinker. I have lobbied at the local, state and national level for legislation promoting an environmental agenda. I have also lobbied for fiscal restraint in managing both the Arlington County and Arlington Public Schools’ budgets.

I’ve run for Arlington County Board several times and School Board twice. I routinely speak on the issues relevant to Arlington residents before Arlington County Board and Arlington School Board.

I’ve been a member of the Arlington Coalition for Sensible Transportation (ACST) since 2006 and was appointed to the Arlington Transportation Commission in March, 2018.

I’m currently employed as a statistical programmer on a contract basis for the federal government.

    I represent a group that is extremely unhappy with the degree to which the current Board pays zero attention to the issue of unequal pool fees being charged to community swimmers and DPR swim class participants and are looking for a challenger who will listen and act to create equity. Are you willing to listen to the issue?

      Sure, Walter. Let me know if you’re still interested in pursuing this with me. Audrey
