Why should voters elect you?
"Because we can't expect to end the status quo without change. And I'm the only candidate in this race who represents real change."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"The performance of our public schools. Public schools, like so many other issues facing the District, are stuck in a status quo that isn't working. Additionally, while city leaders have quarreled over political control of our school system, they've lost sight of the most important issue of all: the academic achievement of our children. What we need now, in the issue of education and others, is the leadership to end the status quo and provide new, innovative and practical solutions that can effectively face the challenge and move our city forward."
