My name is Tara Bailey and I am asking for your vote to be a delegate for Bernie in CD-05. Having worked closely with all of the other delegates I can honestly say there is no bad choice. All of us have volunteered our time and donated our money to support Bernie.
If I become a delegate for Bernie I pledge to keep all of the Bernie supporters in District 5 and across Alabama informed as to what is taking place at the convention. I know we are all a bit on edge to see what will happen with the delegate count and I will do everything I can to ensure Bernie becomes our next President.
A little about me…
- I moved to Alabama from Ohio after I graduated college in 2004.
- While in college I was a member of the group Democracy Matters whose entire mission was to work towards getting big money out of politics.
- I also led the student Tobacco Coalition where I worked to draw attention to how many people die from smoking and call attention to the tobacco lobbyists who were working hard to buy off our politicians and convince the public that smoking wasn’t all that harmful.
In 2015/16 my husband got the opportunity to work for a company in Colorado. We ended up moving to Parker, CO located in Douglas County. It is the seventh wealthiest county in the United States so you know how conservative it was. While living there I learned about Bernie Sanders and began becoming active in his campaign.
Hearing Bernie talk about cleaning up the corruption in DC and reversing Citizens United is what initially sparked my interest and after hearing the rest of his platform I was all in for Bernie.
