Andrew Bligh for State Assembly

Posted September 19th, 2007 by crockford

The Peace and Freedom Party is proud to introduce Andrew Bligh, candidate for State Assembly for the 31st District.

An excerpt from Andrew's biography:

"I am an English Instructor at Fresno City College and have also taught courses at the Madera Center following completing my Master of Arts degree in English at University of California, Riverside, in 2005. I currently also serve as an advisor for the Diversity Club at Fresno City College. I was born and raised in the Central Valley and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English (with a minor in Linguistics) from California State University, Fresno, and am also a Fresno City College graduate myself. It is an incredible opportunity to give service back to the campus and community that gave so much to me through education. While a student at CSU, Fresno, I also tutored at McLane High School, served as President of United Student Pride (an LGBT student organization at CSU, Fresno), co-organized speaking engagements for Leslie Feinberg in Fresno, and assisted in the efforts of the Gay-Straight Alliance Network towards a safe and sane environment for the Central Valley's youth. Central Valley schools have, unfortunately, proved to be a gauntlet for many of our youth who do not feel safe to be themselves at school, and I have not and will not waver in speaking up for this changing in our schools and communities."

If you would like to meet Andrew, he will be at the Peace and Freedom Party table at Thursday's San Francisco Mime Troupe performance at Roosevelt High School's Theater for the Performing Arts.
