|Info||Chelene Nightingale is the daughter of an Air Force veteran. She attended military base schools and learned patriotism and loyalty to the United States of America from her military upbringing and maternal legal immigrant family. |
After her education, Chelene established a solid modeling and acting career in Seattle, then relocated to the golden state of California in the early 1990’s. She continued to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, but after the tragic events of 9-11 and the birth of her son, she became concerned for her child that the country she loved was in danger.
Over 4 years ago, a good friend who is not only a Marine veteran, but the son of a legal immigrant from Mexico, educated her that the tragic events of 9-11 may have been prevented had our borders been secured and our legal immigration laws enforced.
After some research on the issues, Nightingale joined the California-based non-profit political organization Save Our State. Soon she would become the media and events organizer for the group, then later promoted to managing director by the 501c3’s founder.
Under her direction, SOS membership greatly increased and she became known as someone who definitely gets things done!
During her tenure at Save Our State, Chelene organized community events and lobbying efforts in both Washington D.C. and Sacramento. One of her most proud achievements was helping to bring national attention to the false imprisonment of former Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean. She successfully organized a march in Hollywood for the agents which was featured on the nationally syndicated program “America’s Most Wanted” hosted by John Walsh.
Nightingale is certainly no stranger to political campaigns. Back in 2006, she was the campaign manager for California gubernatorial candidate Art Olivier. Two years later, she would meet with presidential candidate Ron Paul and officially endorse his campaign.
In January 2009, long time members and leaders of the AIP recruited this political figure and homeschooling mother to run for California Governor. Chelene accepted when the Sacramento bureaucrats betrayed their constituents by passing the highest state tax increase in the nation’s history. Since that time, Chelene has joined other frustrated voters at various statewide tea parties. Her dynamic persona, along with her inspirational speaking style, have placed her in high demand at political rallies due to her ability to draw large crowds and motivate people into action. She is honored to represent “we the people” instead of special interest money. She hopes that other frustrated Californians will join her on this journey to help take back our Golden State!
