I am experienced high donor fundraiser, based now in Bay Area, though if the position becomes paid, might be able to move (though prefer staying here).
My resume is below. My preference is for a position that addresses a root reform--one that would make all the others possible like public funding of elections or
the 28th Amendment to remove personhood, or anything to get rid of electronic voting. I have worked years in the first and last areas, and have rasied a total of over $1.6MM. However i have been out of the field for most of the past 6 years, developing an Internet startup. I can be reached at davidvGoliath@gmail.com and also good idea to cc email@example.com. (Please be sure to put "Idealist" and you city and org in subject, and contact info in your sig including skype. Thanks, yours truly and work'n for love and justice, Gary Krane PhD
