“I’ve been a journalist and foreign correspondent for almost three decades.
I’ve seen the melting permafrost in the Arctic first hand.
I’ve covered bushfires, floods, typhoons, even super storms on four continents.
I’ve been in the room where it happens.
I’ve seen the fragmentation of trust and truth in the United States.
I’ve been an observer and it’s time to stop being an observer because I’m home now.
I check my privilege everyday to live in this wonderful place and I am stepping up to the table for the sake of our community, our economy and the future of our children.”
