Help Britt Farbo Go To DC

Folks who have been active in Baja Arizona Democratic politics for a while probably remember Britt Farbo, the feisty badass from the Sulphur Springs Valley who made her mark on the Young Democrats back in the aughts. Since then, she has led a wandering life of adventure, including a stint in DC with EMILY’s List, studies in Norway, and work with an NGO in Afghanistan. Currently, she is doing NGO work for the advancement of women in Cambodia and is working on a degree in Phnom Pen.

Farbo is also active as an officer with Democrats Abroad, the arm of the Democratic Party that represents expatriate Democrats around the world. She is raising money so she can go to Washington DC to represent the Asia-Pacific Region in her capacity as a Regional Vice Chair at Democrats Abroad’s 50th Anniversary meeting at the end of February. In Farbo’s words:

My hope is that I can raise enough money to cover travel from Cambodia to the United States, in order to attend the Democrats Abroad 2014 Annual Meeting and 50th Anniversary as well as the DNC Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C. (Febuaray 27th-March 5th, 2014) where I am looking forward to representing the Asia-Pacific Region and Cambodia.

At these meetings Americans abroad and Americans from all walks of life will meet with members of congress to advocate for fair applications of the law to Americans living abroad. Work hard with party leaders to understand our role better in the 2014 elections and pass ideas around. Democrats Abroad will also celebrate fifty years since our founding.

2014 is shaping up to be an interesting one political, economically and socially for the world and by extension the individual. For myself personally this year marks the half-way point in finishing my undergraduate degree, turning thirty and five years abroad. My hope is that through my life as a student trying to make it work, my continued participation in Democrats Abroad, and a different and emerging perspective that one day I might be a better change agent for my country and community.

Thanks for your support, patience, and encouragement over time.

In Solidarity,

Britt Farbo

Regional Vice Chair Asia-Pacific Region 2013-Present

Frm. Secretary Democrats Abroad Afghanistan 2010-2011

  1. She’ll do fine! Arizona must get rid of the poor imagine that politicians like John McCain, Jeff Flake, Gosar, Franks, Salmon,and Schweikert gives them in Washington.

  2. The crew slit the belly of the fish, twisted off its head, and gutted it, directing the liver through one hole in the table, and into a great vat, and the offal through another, where it fell into the sea. The fish was then slid along, and into the hands of the splitter. With a few quick strokes of his knife, the second crew member had the fish split abroad, and the backbone removed. The fish dropped into a “drooge barrow” where it was covered with salt. A salter was a skilful officer, for too much salt burns the fish and makes it break and wet, too little makes it look red when dried, and so is not merchantable. The drying process was executed on the flakes or directly on beaches if they were blessed with broad expanses of stones. A good sense of the weather conditions was crucial. Knowing when to gather in the drying fish, how to make it into a ‘prest pile’ so some of the salt would sweat out of it, even knowing how to store it aboard ship, were all skills that called for the know-how of many men.
