"I'm determined to restore fairness, diplomacy, transparency and most importantly, HUMANITY — back into OUR withering union. I'll take action to root out the corrupt players who’ve been enriching themselves at the expense of union members. I’ll work to take the politics out of our union and unite us as artists for change, not conflict. I’ll push for transparent, insightful contract negotiations, fair compensation for ALL members and re-evaluation of the criteria for health insurance eligibility, particularly the restoration of residual accreditation for seniors. And most importantly, I’ll work to cement doctrine that will protect and uphold members' bodily autonomy. To ensure that the discriminatory practices imposed by SAG-AFTRA leadership these last couple of years-- will never happen again."
I support all the independents and endorse Terrence Glenn Thomas for NY Local Vice President.

"Members have been taken for granted. Dues shouldn’t go to empty real estate deals, while many can barely afford to survive in this inflation and successful actors & seniors are losing their health insurance. Streaming giveaways have gutted our earnings. We need LEADERSHIP who cares about all members. It’s time to end the greed, hypocrisy and gaslighting and oust the “leaders” who brought us here. Time for Affordable Health insurance, Pension and END A.I., coercion, and discrimination in all forms. We deserve living wages, STRONG CONTRACTS and to respect bodily autonomy."
"Leadership is not just being in charge; It is about sincerely caring for those under your charge. As your New York Vice-President, I believe it is time to stop playing political theater, and begin to genuinely see to the needs of its union members, it is about protecting the health and wealth of our members especially our seniors. We are a vibrant, vital community, and that is how we should function. To meet these goals, I support Namakula for New York President. Thank you for your vote, time, and consideration."
3 Year SAG-AFTRA Member Union Strong "When elected my concerns would be safety & the value of our actors. “Everybody Should Work”: I will be your VOICE on the local board making sure every voice is heard. I vow to you and everyone at the SAG AFTRA that New York is represented properly, treated with care & all need will be taken care of. I have passion about this position and be the best to look after my fellow actors & make sure get the Maximum Benefits we can give our actors."
