Sertoman of the Day:   n/a

Program:   Randy Smith introduced Lily Tang Williams, a Candidate for US Senate.

Born in the wild west of China, Sichuan province before the Cultural Revolution, raised with her two sibling brothers by illiterate working-class parents, Lily grew up facing poor living conditions, food rationing, Communist indoctrination, political, and social chaos under Mao’s regime. In this tumultuous environment, she quickly developed street smarts and compassion as well as the values of perseverance and hard work.

Lily received her university law degree at Fudan University in Shanghai and was a faculty member of the law school for three years. She came over to the U.S. in 1988 to earn a Master's degree at the University of Texas at Austin, School of Social Work.

Lily worked for corporations in Hong Kong and the U.S as a corporate executive. Lily became a Colorado small business woman and entrepreneur in 2000

Lily was nominated as a candidate by the Libertarian Party of Colorado in March of 2014 to run for the State of Representatives in House District 44. She is the former state chair of the Libertarian Party of Colorado and currently State Director for Our America Initiative. The Libertarian Party of Colorado unanimously nominated Lily on March 12th as the candidate for U.S. Senate. Her name will be on the ballot this November.

Lily is a grassroots activist and professional speaker. She has been outspoken against Communism, Socialism, Corporatism, Unconstitutional Surveillance, Common Core and Gun Control. She is an inspirational speaker to many people. Lily is married to John Williams for 25 years with three children. They have lived in Parker, Colorado for 16 years. They have a German Sheppard dog named Ajiao, which in Mandarin means 'Cute and proud'. Besides taking care of family, business and be politically active, Lily also enjoys traveling, cooking, music, playing soccer, Poker and Ping Pong. (from her web site)
