Polly Getz stands for election as Vice Pres of House of Deputies

Polly Getz stands for election as Vice Pres of House of Deputies

From the Facebook page of Pauline Getz:

I have been asked by some Province VIII leadership to stand for election as Vice President of the House of Deputies of the Episcopal Church. After a great deal of prayer and consideration, the answer is Yes, and here’s why:

Province VIII deserves more representation in the councils of the Church. I can bring that voice to the table.

I have served 2 Presidents of the House as their Parliamentarian, giving me an inside view as well as a good understanding of how the sausage is made.

I have lived in 5 Dioceses in my life, 4 in Province VIII: California, Arizona, San Joaquin, San Diego and West Texas.

My Dad was a priest for 62 years and my brother has been for more than 30. That has given me a churchwide view of our family of Christ.

The only “camp” I am affiliated with is Camp Stevens, our diocesan church camp which we share with Los Angeles. I make my decisions after prayerful consideration and not based on an agenda. Absolutely not implying anyone else does, just saying “this is me.”

I’ve been a Vice Chancellor for 20 years and a corporate attorney for 30 – I “get” structure and governance.

I am a 6 time Deputy, I love the church, and I understand who we are and who we can be.

I hope you will prayerfully consider supporting my candidacy. I look forward to seeing all of you in a matter of days. I love to serve this Church!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
