I believe that now is the best time to run. I feel that we have to go back to community focused solutions to advance our district. I endeavor to advocate and be a voice for the needs and betterment of our community. Being that you can be born here, raised here, and can not afford to live here is not acceptable. With that being said, housing rights/ rent control is a focus of mine as well as lowering crime, economic development, and affordable mental health services. I hope to earn the respect and votes of our community.
