Brooke Pinto
Guest Occupation: Running for DC Council in Ward 2
Guest Biography:

I am running for DC Council because I believe we deserve a leader who we can trust to serve Ward 2 with integrity and transparency.

For the last two years, I have been working on behalf of District residents as the Assistant Attorney General for Policy and Legislative Affairs for the District of Columbia.  I saw how LGBTQQIA+ victims of hate crimes were left without protection or recourse in the wake of their attacks. I learned how our small business community was being taken advantage of by out of state businesses defrauding our CBE program. And, I represented DC before the National Attorney General community to advocate for statehood, decriminalized cannabis, and data privacy legislation.

To address the needs of our community, I worked to advance workers’ rights, improve environmental justice, and expand civil rights and consumer protections through everything from data breach to hate crime legislation.

I grew up in Connecticut and I am the youngest of three siblings. I attended Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and earned my undergraduate degree in Business & Hospitality Administration. I then went on to work at a senior living community in New York where I found myself frequently feeling frustrated on behalf of my clients as I helped them navigate through their healthcare options.  This led me to pursue a law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center.

During law school, I served as the Executive Articles Editor for the Journal on Poverty and Public Policy and volunteered at the Landlord Tenant Resource center providing advice to displaced tenants and aggravated landlords. I then advocated for seniors and advanced women’s health issues on Capitol Hill for Senator Blumenthal as his Health and Aging Fellow.

Knowing that I wanted to commit my career to public service, I joined the DC OAG, where I practiced law in our Tax and Finance group litigating cases on behalf of the DC Office of Tax and Revenue. I then moved on to work for Attorney General Racine on Policy, Legislative Affairs, and Legal matters where I was able to work on a broad array of issues plaguing our city.

I am deeply committed to serving the residents of DC and I want to ensure that Ward 2 has a representative on the Council whom they can trust — not only to operate ethically, but also to ensure the issues that matter most are addressed.

Through my experience representing DC residents, I was consistently inspired and impressed our community members’ commitment to equity and advancing justice. We have a lot to be proud of and a lot to work on. I want to be a partner in and advocate for that work.

I felt inspired to get in this race and ensure that an honest, fair, and devoted advocate is at the table. I would be honored and humbled to have your support.

Janeese Lewis George
Guest Occupation: Running for DC Council in Ward 4
Guest Biography:

I grew up on 2nd Street in Ward 4’s Manor Park, the third generation of Washingtonians in my family. My mom has worked for the U.S. Postal Service for 33 years, and if you’ve been to the Brightwood Post Office, she’s still the person who helps you at the desk with a smile. My mom raised me and my two older siblings to know the importance of family, hard work, education, and public service.

Seeing both DCs

Our family had to work hard. My local DC public school, Rudolph Elementary, had leaking ceilings, books that were missing pages, and was in the middle of neighborhood violence that made studying seem like a luxury. But my mom worked to give me a better path. My grandmother was a lunch lady at Alice Deal Middle School in Friendship Heights, and together they helped me enroll as a student there.

I remember my first time riding the E2 bus across Military Road to the neighborhood where Deal is located. It was like a different world. It felt so much safer. The books at school had all their pages. There were so many more resources and opportunities. And I couldn’t help but wonder, why can’t schools be like this on our side of the park? Now, it’s twenty years later, and Ward 4’s schools still aren’t keeping pace.

Guest Biography:

J O N E L L 

M O S S E R

A KENTUCKY GAL WITH  SOULFUL INTENSITY

COLLABORATES WITH

'O R L E A N S'  LEGEND JOHN HALL

EXCLUSIVE!

 

Thirty years ago, John Hall of Orleans met Jonell Mosser, queen of the Bluebird in Nashville. They immediately wrote a song together, a collaboration that caught fire when Johanna Hall came into the mix.  They wrote dozens of songs over the next decade. 

As a duo, John and Jonell did some memorable gigs in Woodstock. Recently, a cassette of one of those shows—an acoustic duo show at the Bearsville Theater in 1994—surfaced from a neglected drawer. A lost gem, the performances were so stellar, the songs so new they still had dew on them. Twenty-five years later, after Johanna digitized and edited it, that performance is finally released to the public as Little Black Dress.

Jonell Mosser’s first record was Around Townes, a collection of songs by Townes Van Zandt. She then came to the attention of producer Don Was (Bonnie Raitt, Waylon Jennings, Rolling Stones) who cut an album with her. He also put together the band New Maroons which performed at Farm Aid with Jonell singing in front of Benmont Tench, Mark Goldenberg, Was, and Ringo Starr. Two CDs--So Like Joy and Enough Rope--were released on Hall’s Siren Songs label, followed by Trust Yourself (Better Angels) and Fortunes Lost, Fortunes Told (Brother’s Mother’s Music).

Singing in venues large and small, touring the US and Japan with Orleans, Delbert McClinton, and other, Jonell has seen her audience grow. She’s sung studio vocals for B.B. King, Trisha Yearwood, Jesse Winchester, Etta James, Wynona, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Waylon Jennings, Patty Smythe, A.J. Croce, Bruce Cockburn….

John Hall’s written songs for Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Wariner, and James Taylor. He’s played guitar on tours and records with Little Feat, Taj Mahal, Jackson Browne, and Seals and Crofts. His music and environmental activism led him to 10 years in elective office. Now, back to music full time, he writes songs and performs solo and with Orleans. 

"Listen to Jonell Mosser just once in concert and you'll be an instant believer. She sings with all-out passion and heart. No frills. No games. Just a soulful intensity that makes you realize you're in the presence of the real thing."

Kirk Mango
Guest Occupation: Author “Becoming a True Champion”, former NCAA gymnastics champion & Team Member on “Hey Sport Parents- The Sports Dr’s In”
Guest Biography:

It was February of 1974 when a completely unknown young gymnast, Kirk Mango, made a choice that would change the direction of his life and send him on an intense journey of self-discovery and accomplishment. His efforts would culminate in a State Championship, a high school All-American award and a full scholarship to compete in gymnastics at the NCAA Division I level for Northern Illinois University. What was most surprising and unbelievable about this was not only the achievement itself, but the fact that he did it in just one year-something nobody thought possible. For Kirk, it was the starting point of a career that has brought him numerous other awards and honors, first as an athlete, then as a coach and teacher.

A collegiate Division I National Champion and gold medalist on the still rings in 1979, Kirk had to defeat several Olympians to garner this honor, accomplishing this feat by almost 3 tenths of a point (former 10.0 scoring) above the next placed competitor. He was awarded commendations from the mayor of DeKalb, Illinois and from Northern Illinois University for high achievement and contribution to the City of DeKalb and to the University. The previous year Kirk had won the silver medal on this event in the 1978 Division I National Championships, losing the gold medal by a mere one-tenth of a point. Of particular note is that Kirk was in 17th place after the first preliminary round of competition (compulsory), moving to sixth place after the first optional round, and second place (and the silver medal) after receiving the highest optional score on still rings in the finals. He was selected as a collegiate All-American in both 1978 and 1979 and to the present day still holds the Northern Illinois University school record for the still rings event. Kirk’s accomplishments, along with his many other regional, dual-meet, and invitational championships (including the prestigious Windy City and Midwest Open), gave rise to his nickname, “The Lord of the Rings.”

In 2000, he was selected to the Northern Illinois Athletic Hall of Fame; there, his photograph hangs on the wall with some of the most prestigious athletes ever to attend and compete for Northern Illinois University. His most recent accolades include being chosen in 2009 as No. 8 of the Top 50 Athletes of All Time competing for NIU, induction into Willowbrook High School’s Inaugural Hall of Fame (with professional athlete greats, former Chicago Bears Tom Hicks, Cleveland Browns Matt Roth, former Philadelphia Phillies World Series pitcher Dan Schatzeder, and Milwaukee Brewers Jody Gerut), and induction into Northern Illinois Athletic Hall of Fame for a second time in October of 2010.

Kirk graduated NIU in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science in education and in 1992 received his Master of Administration from Roosevelt University in Chicago. Now retired, he taught high school students for 34 years and coached student-athletes for 17 of those years.

Stanley Aaga Bartlett
Guest Occupation: Feng Shui
Guest Biography:

Born in and grew up in Mt Kisco, NY, after my parents moved from France following WW II

Good family, good parents, good education, a successful athlete and business experiences, well off. Then came marriage, children, divorce, wife got all the wealth and I was cut off from contact with my children.

Next came Harmonic Convergence 1987 and my spiritual awareness became very strong. Soon afterward came Feng Shui. I never studied it but immediately knew what to do and a Chiropractor I was seeing said from her muscle testing that she could confirm that I was supposed to do it and would I begin by doing her office.  Then others heard about it and started calling me. Soon I was famous in the US and was traveling extensively.

Included in the Feng Shui connection was the use of my special gift of having extreme sensitivity to energies and a deep connection to the earth's energies and Gaia. While traveling in every state in North America, it was the activation of crystalline energies and stargates.

The next chapter moved me to Vermont to reduce all the travel while making Feng Shui videos and the construction and movie of How To Build The Perfect Feng Shui house. The budget for construction was limited and although the house was mostly completed and is very livable, it is not fully completed and hence the movie is currently not completed. The house did get an Award From Efficiency Vermont for the most energy-efficient home built in Vermont. The name of the property is "Hearts Landing" and has a heart-shaped pond on 12 acres located in beautiful pristine mountains in the part of Vermont known as the NORTHEAST KINGDOM. 

Another story for next time is 2 major sightings from my window with millions of ships visiting me.  Tara and Rama always called me Galactic Commander so maybe they are right! Susan was in contact with me while she was in the body for one of the sightings.

Kathleen Jordon
Guest Occupation: Executive Coach
Guest Biography:

Kathleen studied psychology, English and modern history at Melbourne University and subsequently studied postgraduate criminology.

Applying what she had learned to her personal and professional lives became a passion. This led to the development of a personal program of continuous learning and to the creation of her company, Intuitive Insights, which focused on executive development, leadership coaching and community engagement.

The company concentrated on helping leaders, individuals and teams to understand the essence of who they are and how they can choose the way forward to give their work and life meaning and purpose.

Kathleen has coached over 300 executives around the world.

This balanced and fulfilling life came to a sudden and distressing full stop on 23 August 2011 when she suffered a major stroke.

Determined that her experiences might have lessons for others, and while she was still recovering in hospital from operations and treatment, she began the writing of Standing Up!. Given the state of her health, this was challenging enough, but the death of her parents within a few months of each other in October 2012 and February 2013 further tested her resolve to complete the book.

A further heavy blow came when one of her much-loved daughters, Dr Lucinda May Jordan, was diagnosed with breast cancer, also early in 2013. She subsequently passed away in May 2015.

Lucinda had been working with the McAuley Community Services for Women in Victoria. McAuley supports women and children experiencing family violence or homelessness.

Proceeds from the sale of Standing Up! are donated to McAuley Community Services.

He has lived and practiced in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada since 1989. He’s written 17 books, 30+ academic papers and hosted the number one internet radio show in the world – Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today. He is a co- founder of Doctors for the Practice of Safe and Ethical Aesthetic Medicine and founder of The Canadian Skin Cancer Association. He has won the prestigious Consumers Choice Award For Cosmetic Surgery for 16 consecutive years.

In 2003, Dr. Lycka’s life changed drastically when he suddenly developed a right foot drop and then misdiagnosed as ALS (Lou Gherigs’ disease). Still, he maintained his status as a leading cosmetic doctor for 30 years.

Because of what he learned, he is co-authoring the book The Secrets of Living A Fantastic Life with Harriet Tinka, a former fashion model and Woman of Distinction.

He is also currently co-authoring two more books: one with Corie Poirier entitled, “bLU Talks Presents: Business, Life and the Universe” and one with Jack Canfield entitled, “The Pillars of Success.”

Currently acknowledged as a leading expert in Living A Fantastic Life and Turning Points, he is a transformational speaker, thought leader, coach, and mentor.
