2/17 - Why We're Such Big Fans of San Diego Council Member Donna Frye

As part of the new slide show we're producing with Surfrider, titled, "Shifting Baselines in the Surf," I recorded San Diego Council Member Donna Frye yesterday performing a small sound bite for the production. She is the greatest. She was part of our Shifting Baselines Evening at Scripps Birch Aquarium a couple of years ago. Hopefully by now you know all about her spontaneous write-in candidacy last fall for the San Diego mayoral election which many people believe she won. Regardless of how that turns out, she is a living example of a really good grass roots activist who has risen through the political system, yet still retains the friendly, down home characteristics of smaller scale environmental activism. She was such a good sport, and her office walls are covered with photos and posters from her years of fighting for clean water and beaches along the California coast.


Donna Frye: Our favorite mayoral write-in candidate
