Why should voters elect you?
"To make sure they have a voice in our city government that looks after their interests first: housing, jobs, education, health care and safe neighborhoods."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"District families must have a sense that their children will do better than their parents. That is why I work every day to bring business and jobs to the city and make job training available to our residents. That is why I have proposed a $3,000 credit for new homeowners to buy a first home as housing costs skyrocket. It is why our education and health care systems need to be fixed. I know what it is like to grow up in a working family; those are the values that were instilled in me and guide me every day."
