My name is Maxine Harrison-Gallmon.
My father, Bertram Harrison, was a dedicated member of WBAI for over 35 years and a regular contributor.
I was born in Jamaica, grew up in Brooklyn and became aware of WBAI due to the influence of my father.
Right after my father passed on 4 years ago, I began volunteering at WBAI. I help the General Manger with daily chores and do whatever is needed to get premiums to listeners.
I have been a major supporter of Bernie Sanders and I have been a staunch proponent of independent grassroot candidates. Although I am not a member of DSA, I am actively involved in promoting their message. I have helped the General Manager of WBAI reach out to Nina Turner, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jumanee Williams. I’ve also helped Dr. Howard Jordan secure interviews with some of these grassroots people.
I believe that a multi-party system is the only way to get out of the vortex of establishment and corporate politics. I am willing to be a WBAI LSBmember because I want to help the WBAI LSB reach out to the youth and progressive movements that are on the rise. I also want WBAI to survive by staying in contact with the real grassroot movements that it was meant to represent from its inception.
I have supported Zephyr Teachout, Cynthia Nixon, Jill Stein and Jumanee Williams, who called me recently to thank me for working with him on his campaign.
I hope you recognize what I can bring to the WBAI LSB and to the WBAI family. Please vote for me.
