On Mothers Day, Sunday May 12 at 5:00pm, on “Be Bold America!,” Amanda Litman, co-founder and executive director of Run for Something will be the expert guest. Run for Something recruits and supports young progressives, mostly women, to run for elected office. Amanda was email director for Hillary Clinton, digital director for Charlie Crist, and email writer for Barack Obama. In addition, she is the author of “Run for Something: A Real-Talk Guide to Fixing the System Yourself”, including a Foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The “in-studio” guest will be Yvette Brooks, newly elected City Councilmember to the Capitola City Council. Yvette founded a non-profit program called Teens Teaching Teens (3T’s). The program was so successful that it received national attention from the Oprah Winfrey Show. She attended the University of California Santa Cruz and currently works at the Santa Cruz County Office of Education.
Amanda will be talking about why and how women should run for office, and why it is important that women change our political system. Yvette will discuss why she ran for the Capitola City Council, what her experience was like, and how it impacts her life. Both will discuss the unique qualities that women bring to an elected office.
Tune in on Mothers Day to discuss women running for elected office!

Words from my supporters:
“If you want the task done, put Yvette on it”; that’s my new mantra after welcoming Yvette Brooks to the Board of Directors of the Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery in 2017. Not only is she an efficient worker but she also brings her enthusiasm, passion for causes, well-honed listening skills and a focus, along with a smile, to whatever project she embraces. At a time when competent, optimistic and thoughtful leadership are needed at all levels of government, it is exciting to think of Yvette as a Capitola City Councilwoman.”
Patrice Keet, Executive Director, Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery
“Having worked with Yvette for over a decade I have observed first hand her commitment to students, families and our community. I wholeheartedly support her candidacy for the Capitola City Council”.
Michael Watkins, Santa Cruz County Office of Education, Superintendent
“Yvette is a competent leader with a strong track record of advocating for children and families in our community. Her commitment to our city is evident in her participation in the Capitola Leadership Academy and her role as a board member for the Children’s Museum of Discovery in the Capitola Mall.”
Kristen Petersen, Capitola Citycouncilmember
