What do you hope to accomplish during your term? In my first term I hope to establish advocacy boards and task forces to engage our communities and create a two-way dialogue between government and the people to enhance our ability to put resources where they are most needed. Advocacy boards would include but aren’t limited to a Community Veteran’s engagement board and a citizen’s police oversight board. Task Forces would include but aren’t limited to a Community Rapid Response task force during emergencies, and a community revitalization task force for our most neglected areas. I would also prioritize any opportunities to increase jobs by providing resources and incentives to increase upstart and small business ownership as well as direct resources to early childhood education.
What makes you qualified to hold this office? I am a mother, grandmother, and an involved member of our community that has and will continue to fight for our communities to be heard. I see the needs of our people, I’ve lived those struggles, and I’m prepared to ring the bell all over Washington to make sure we are heard.
What should voters keep in mind in the ballot box this November?
Our representatives either don’t see what’s going on or they choose not to act. Our communities are suffering and our representatives don’t hear us. But NOW is the time to be heard. Ring the bell.
