Very few people who've been around for awhile don't know Thelma. She has been one of our most active volunteers since the John Kerry campaign in 2004.
After growing up in Connecticut, believe it or not, Thelma became an active Republican in New Jersey, where she raised her family. But thank you, Ronald Reagan. His politics helped Thelma find her way to the Democratic Party, which she joined after moving to California in the early 1980's. There, she became active in the Sierra Club and remains so to this day.
Since coming to Reno in the late 1990's, Thelma has been involved in many ways - working on campaigns, helping with fundraising events, serving as WashoeDEMS Secretary, and doing what she loves most, registering new voters. And every Tuesday for the last 10 years, you will have found Thelma staffing the front desk, answering phones, greeting visitors, and just generally keeping some sense of order around here!
Thank you, Thelma. You're one-of-a-kind and we appreciate all you do.
