Joann Short

Secretary and DPCA Voting Representative

This is my second term as Secretary.  The first time I ran, I did it primarily as a courtesy to the former Chair.  The organization needed a full Executive Committee in order to become a valid country committee again, and no one was currently running for the position.  I was pretty clear in my ambivalence towards the position, and party politics in general. My personal political beliefs reside on the far left side of the spectrum. I ran unopposed and so elected figured I should do my best to fulfill my responsibilities.  During my term, I was struck by the dedication and passion of the people in the DAROK.  These were people who were very much committed to revitalizing this organization and community here.  I was inspired by their vision and wanted to continue helping them in whatever way that I could.
