Martha Karchere

Speaker for Voter Choice Massachusetts.

Martha is a family physician living 30 years in Jamaica Plain with her husband, Luis Prado, with whom she raised 3 boys. She worked in a community health center in Quincy during most of this time and was active in community advocacy for Franklin Park and the local library. More recently, she was involved in Don Berwick's gubernatorial campaign and Bernie Sander's presidential campaign. She believes that inequality is at the root of many of our most pernicious health problems including obesity and drug addiction. Martha sees Ranked Choice Voting as one powerful way to open up the public square to more opinions and policies, making government more representative and responsive to the needs of the planet and humankind.
