WHY I'M RUNNING
We need leaders who believe in the power of communities and neighborhoods to transform systems of exploitation to systems of communal care. We need leaders who think creatively, who see the big picture as well as the step-by-step process of building a world where we live together in peace and with justice. We need leaders who know the joy that comes from being in community. This is my vision of empowerment for Ward 10.
I have lived in four of the Ward 10 neighborhoods and I know what makes each of our neighborhoods unique, as well as what unites us. I want to advocate for our residents, businesses, and neighborhoods to make sure essential services are met and that the city meets its obligations. I am here to serve you and work together to find solutions.
