Our Advisory Board

LIV's Advisory Board does just that -- advise. Most of what we do would be impossible without them. They, like our regular Board, are all volunteers. Are you interested in joining our Advisory Board? Contact us.


Michele Gangnes is a co-founder of LIV. She is a long-time resident of the Blue community in Lee County, a rural county 40 miles east of Austin. Michele is a native Texan, and graduated from Rice University and the University of Texas School of Law.

James Murphy has over 25 years of experience in law and executive management; planning, funding, and implementation of regional water supply projects. LIV is very lucky to have Jim's stellar volunteer advice. He is all things water!

Linda Curtis is a co-founder of LIV and longtime political independent and serves as our volunteer Chief Organizer for LIV. We respect and listen to her advice -- and, sometimes even follow it!

The fact is, Linda is usually going in the opposite direction, as pictured here crossing the Rio Grande for Mexico (presumably legally), with her friend in the background. She got to Texas, as the saying goes, "as soon as I could" -- 1992.
