Lightfoot 4 Secretary of State!

Candiate Statement
California General Election Voter Information Guide
November 5, 2002
Candidates name: Gail K. Lightfoot
Office Being Sought: Secretary of State

I am a retired Registered Nurse with certificates in Public Health and ICU, CCU, MICU, ER, and IV Therapy. I have well over 40 years of direct patient care in hospitals, offices, clinics and Home Health Care plus medical service evaluation, research and recommendations using medical records and Utilization Review procedures.

I know how to quickly assess situations, take instant remedial action and teach individuals and families to cope with illness under extreme stress.

I have served as Secretary for a statewide organization.

As your Secretary of State, I would increase eligible voter participation through easy to understand election pamphlets (and candidate guidelines). By including a detailed explanation of political party positions and principles along with photos and statements from all candidates, I would empower voters to make voting decisions using the election pamphlet ignoring media coverage (favoring incumbents and major party candidates) and expensive advertising beyond the reach of the average person concerned about their country.

I support the 'None of The Above' option in all elections, same day (honor system) voter registration and permanent absentee voting status and a vastly strengthened local library system through the State Library.

Local libraries need increased support to have fully informed voters. Individuals, political parties or clearly and openly acknowledged special interest membership groups (but NOT corporations or unions) should be free to give personal financial contributions to any candidate without limits, (provided such contributions and expenditures are noted and listed in the voter pamphlet).
