I enjoyed going to Housing Matters Forums with Tobi Hanna-Davies on behalf of ISAAC. At the same time, she and I put up signs for the Metro County Bus Millage. I lobbied at my church to help pass the bus millage as well. This was five years ago and was especially gratifying in that the bus millage, for expanded evening and weekend buses, passed. The most memorable experience I had with ISAAC was several years ago. I helped lobby for the Nurse/Family Partnership with several city bodies including the City and County Commissions. It has been very successful. We couldn’t get anyone to pass it and our last chance to get funding was with the County Commission. We kept hope. Eight of us showed up anyway and several ISAAC members testified. It passed. It is now being funded for the entire state by the state government with strong bipartisan support. Other than working with ISAAC, I have worked several full time and part time jobs over the last 38 years. I have also been active in the community, through our church and at Ministry with Community.
I enjoy the feeling of making a difference in the community that I get working with ISAAC.
