President ........position open.
Vice-President .....Dorothy Gill
was born and raised in Vancouver. Having received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in '82 in St. Louis, she worked as technician in a Neurology Lab at University of Chicago until '84. She has been married for 26 years and has four sons. Dorothy currently homeschools her three youngest and is in charge of communications for parish a homeschool group, as well as being the full time care giver for an elderly parent.
Upon her return to Vancouver in '84, Dorothy became an active member with Clark County Right to Life. After two years of membership involvement she began what is now her continuous service on the board. he has served mostly as treasurer, but also two years as president. In addition, Dorothy served on the Board of Directors for Human Life of Washington in the late 80's for 2 or 3 years. In '91, she was spokesperson for the "No on 120" campaign, which opposed making abortion a state right if Roe v. Wade were to be overturned. She identifies herself as a "single issue voter and political volunteer - pro-life," Dorothy believes the most pressing issue for pro life groups to address today is the ..."absence of a moral code. Life Principles is the educational foundation we need to teach to youth and adults. Arguing life issues with anecdotes is not productive because it is relativist. We need a bottom line, an understanding of why the right to life is inalienable."
Treasurer..... Gerry Parmantier, RN (retired)
Gerry has lived in Vancouver since 1963 and with his wife has raised a family of four. A registered nurse since 1975 (and an LPN and US Army medical corpsman before that) he was the CCRTL President from 1975-85...busy with family life, work as an RN (in hospital, nursing home and high school vocational), annual Clark County Fair prolife exhibits, Speaker's Bureau, Newsletter, Candidate Surveys and letters to the editor of the Columbian.
He supported the fledgling beginnings of Birthright back in the 1970's. Since retiring after 27 years with Providence Portland (the last 21 as a Home Health RN) he returned to "active duty" as Treasurer of CCRTL.
He is also local coordinator for the 40 Days for Life campaign.
