Jean Rogers - for Equity Council and Equity President

"Hi, I’m supporting Jean Rogers because I think she has a firm grip on what are the important issues in Equity and with an ever changing arena in which Equity members perform, I think Jean will steward the union through challenging times with intelligence and common sense.

The other reason I am supporting her is because she gave me ten pounds."
