Gina Frank – Lincoln,NE
Gina has recently been helping support local grassroots activists inside and outside the party. What started as a Bernie Delegate group, has morphed into a group for helping people get involved in politics. She’s a teacher at heart (and by education), but is currently staying home with her kiddo because it’s not financially logical to pay for daycare and take home nothing. She blames Bernie for getting her involved in politics. Gina has always despised typical politics and backstabbing and is excited to see new people in the political arena that aren’t chosen by the oligarchy.
