1. What is the most important issue in Council District 12 you would address if elected?

I understand that one of the most important issues of the District is Education. In order to build a solid foundation for the future, our schools must be able to keep up. We have to ensure that parents have a voice and ensure that there are leadership and support for our public schools in order to build a solid foundation for the future.


2. What other important issues would you address if elected?

The other issues I would like to address is Housing and Health Care.

Although new two and three family houses have been added to the area in recent years, there is still a shortage of affordable housing. Real Estate is the biggest business in the city and our people have been disengaged from the process.

To ensure a strong Health Care system we need to stay informed about the issues that will affect us in the community and to stay informed with elected officials and partner with advocate to foster quality care.


3. What makes you the best candidate for this office?

I am someone whose priorities are to my Council District and not to any one particular party or group of people. I will represent everyone. I understand the problems and the struggles of my community. I have launched this campaign to enact change and get results.
