In February 2018, I attended a social event organized by a group of concerned Seattle voters. As the event began, everyone introduced themselves and their issues of concern. They spoke of close calls with violent, intoxicated individuals, inadequate police response times and the need to get our most vulnerable off the streets. Every single speaker was almost apologetic for voicing their concerns for their family, neighbors and their City.
That night I decided to help these voters in their efforts to reclaim the City of Seattle for their families and neighbors. I am most proud of my efforts that helped stop the head tax and assisting efforts to hold local government accountable.
My goal is to represent the citizens of my district with honesty, dignity and transparency. We are in desperate need of councilmembers that work for us and our needs as a community. We must realign spending priorities and stop funding failing programs in order to get the money to people that need support. Heroin injection sites should be banned, and funding provided for treatment and counseling.
I will bring your concerns and issues to the council and will fight for all of the people in my district.
