Putting My Experience and Passion to Work for Our City
My involvement and community service over the course of more than 20 years have more than prepared me for the challenges we all face. My purpose has always been clear—to leave a positive footprint for future generations by fighting for social justice, human rights and equity, and empowering and protecting the rights of women, minorities, the working class, and small businesses. This is who I am—from my days of community organizing to serving as your city commissioner and to now owning my own business.
WHY I'M RUNNING
"I love Glendale and I believe I can make a positive change. We need leaders who get things done and have the courage to go to bat for their constituents, especially during these trying times."
MY VISION FOR GLENDALE
I am ready to take on Glendale's challenges and to chart a new course for our City–grounded in our common vision of efficient, responsive, and transparent city services.
Smart development that includes affordable housing and green space, relieves traffic congestion and takes into account the needs of our unique neighborhoods where our children, families and small businesses can grow and thrive;
A robust economic development department that helps our small businesses prosper;
Investments in sustainable energy, green solutions, and open spaces within walking distance from our homes;
Expansion of refined public safety programs to ensure our police and fire have the resources they need to keep our neighborhoods safe;
Dynamic arts and recreation programs that unite our communities and promote the mental and physical health of our residents;
Sophisticated community outreach and widely accessible city services that engage ALL residents.
These are issues and causes that I have always fought for, tracing back to my days at Hoover High School, in a community that is an extension of my family.
Here are some of the changes I plan to work on on as your next councilmember:
MY PLEDGE TO YOU
I will not only lead with courage and empathy, but will bring my experience and proven track record of rolling up my sleeves and working to unify our diverse communities all while addressing your needs.
