Marnie Glickman (Marin): No.
Kendra Gonzales (Ventura): No, high-profile campaigns give us a lot more access to a larger audience such as the Sample Ballot. They give us more media coverage... including of [our] "protests" when we are not "allowed" into debates. I consider Executive Office (Governor,etc) campaigns as important as local seats. We simply need to be more strategic on how to support and organize both. Fund raise first quarter 2011 [jw: or Q1 2012?], and we're on our way!
Jenni Woodward (SF): No. But I think we need an online registry of GPCA people, their education and talents (perhaps including resumés and qualifications for various offices as well?). We also could benefit greatly if we had an online candidates training program for various offices, state and local, as well as for some congressional districts and national agency appointments. Some of us might try to get someone appointed to an office c/o the Democrats who hold higher management positions in that office. It's not us vs. them anymore and it's not enough to just be opinionated (and right).
