Vice Chair, Zurich Chapter
I have been living in Switzerland since 1997. I came for a short term job assignment, met my husband and did not return. I am a Wisconsin voter. This is where I grew up, but lived in many places in the US. I was never politically active. However with my time abroad I have seen and experienced first hand many things that are done much more efficiently and humanely in Europe vs the USA.
- The first is gun control. In my youth there was someone that I was close to that was killed violently by a person who should never have been able to own a gun.
- Healthcare. Health insurance should be mandatory for everyone and basic coverage given to all, even with pre-existing conditions. The insurance should not be tied to an employer.
- Taxes. As US citizens abroad many of us are still paying very high taxes to the US not even living there.
I hope in this new role I can help organize fun events, fundraiser events and any other type of seminar that can help us do what we can from abroad. I will also try my best to work with the other European chapters of Dems Abroad.
