I am a retired public employee who has worked for state and local governments. I have lived and/or worked in Philadelphia, Moorestown/Mt. Laurel, NJ, Annapolis, MD, Richmond, VA and Boston. My current residence is in Vermont.
At the age of 1 I campaigned with my father for Henry Wallace who was the Progressive Party candidate and I am been politically active ever since participating in the civil rights and the anti-Vietnam war movements as well as being involved in many political campaigns on all levels.
I use FortLeft to write about the days events and anything else that takes my fancy including politics, science, sports and history.
