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!
