Brady hires former Tucsonan as Calif. leader
Brady Campaign has hired Ellyne Bell as California Field DIrector. The press release describes her as "an experienced and creative progressive grassroots organizer and coalition builder."
She used to work here in Tucson as head of the Brewster Center for battered women, and "coalition builder" was not a term that comes to mind.
Here's another article: "Ellyne Bell abruptly resigned from the Brewster Center last week, just before City Councilmember Steve Leal did the right thing with a community sit-down that resulted in restoration of domestic violence services at El Pueblo Neighborhood Center... The Brewster crew has a long way to go to repair the damage done by the union-busting tactics they've happily practiced. .... Brewster, sadly, is typical of many in the non-profit Mafia that soak up dollars for big salaries, toot their own horns and then don't deliver."
