As a community organizer and educator, I have worked directly on issues such as public safety, economic growth, and getting at-risk youth back on track in the greater Rainier Valley and beyond. I plan on taking my experience of relationship building with policy-making straight to the City Council to make sure that District 2 is getting the representation and attention it deserves. District 2 is one of the most diverse and culturally rich communities in the city and state. This is a fact that we can all be proud and excited about. I am running to represent District 2 on the City Council because it needs an effective leader who is well skilled at representing and listening to ALL communities. I have a deep understanding and experience with the community on the issues that needs to be resolved for the communities that call District 2 home. I am passionate about the community and will work at making meaningful and effective policy. I will not only support the people and businesses of South Seattle, but add to the tapestry of policy for everyone in Seattle. Being a Council Member is hard work and to make sure that Seattle and District 2 remains the “GEM of the City”, it will require a leader dedicated to the progress of the city, its businesses, and the lives of its people. We have to make sure that this community is a place where all people of all backgrounds and socioeconomic status can live and thrive.
“The Times Are A’ Changin”, and District 2 deserves a leader that has faced the same trials and tribulations as the residents who live here. We need more affordable housing for residents that are at risk of being pushed out, safer roads that don’t put our children and seniors at risk, and better transportation infrastructure so our residents have a reliable way to get to work and around their community. I have partnered, volunteered, and fought for the causes of numerous organizations, nonprofits, and community groups in South Seattle. If elected, I will continue to take these issues head on and give them exposure at the highest levels of government with your help as a representative on the Seattle City Council.
I will work every day to make sure that Seattle is a place that continues to better itself and doesn’t leave anybody behind in the process. Please join my campaign as we fight to keep Seattle District 2 the Gem that we know it is.
We are currently working on getting the 150 qualifying donations for the democracy voucher campaign and we cannot do this without your help! Will you please contribute $10 or more today to start this campaign in the right direction?
Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I look forward to this campaign and hearing what issues matter the most to you!
