As a life long UU, from RE to affirming UU congregational principles as my own personal covenant, I feel the UUA needs a President who can revitalize, clearly articulate and carry out our vision, fund raise, effectively manage and deploy resources and help congregations grow membership. Among the candidates, the Rev. Jeanne Pupke is best qualified and offers a demonstrated track record and that's why I'm endorsing her. In a month's time (June 21-25), the GA will elect the next President and if elected, I believe Rev. Pupke will inspire and effectively lead.
