Questions for Debbie:

Q: Do you know the job?

   A: She spoke with Brian Crawford and is aware of what is entailed.

Q: How did you hear about the Green Party?

   A: Her daughter volunteered for the Jill Stein for President campaign in California and urged Debbie to get involved.

Q: Are you registered J?

   A: Yes. A couple of weeks now.

Q: What are your feelings of the GRP? Would you have registered if this opportunity had not arisen?

   A: She needs to feel personally comfortable with the people she votes for. She isn’t a confrontational person. But she agrees with the 10KV.

Q: Treasurer is a mandatory member of Adcom. Debbie must be available to attend Adcom twice a month. The Treasurer is not required to become a member of Statecom, which meets 4 times a year in person and via telecon 4 times a year, but it would be problematic if treasurer wasn’t able to attend most Statecom meetings.

   A: Debbie: “No problem!”
