Why I’m Running for Re-election
I’m running for re-election to continue the work we've started to protect our environment, make homes affordable, and eliminate unacceptable racial disparities in our city. By working together, we have an opportunity to make meaningful change. I have a proven track record of advocacy and policymaking, and I am excited to build on our collective work towards a more equitable, vibrant, and sustainable Minneapolis.
My Beliefs and Background
I believe government can and should be a force for good. Our community is asking for bold and proactive leadership during these extremely challenging times. I’ve spent my career fighting for equity, combating poverty, and advocating for human rights in Minneapolis and across the country. I bring together people on different sides of an issue, creating consensus despite working on contentious issues.
Why I Want to Be Your
City Council Member
Our community expects a collaborative approach to ensure our City Council is doing as much as it can to improve people's lives. At a time when Minneapolis grapples with a global pandemic, racial disparities, economic inequality, and shifting demographics, you deserve a leader who moves beyond talking points and implements sensible policy solutions. You deserve a leader who will put progress ahead of politics.
VISION AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
I believe change starts with passionate, organized citizens that seize opportunities for progress. That’s why I’ve spent my career building coalitions and putting in the hard work it takes to drive us all forward. Our community is confronting historic challenges, and by coming together we can build a better future for everyone.
PUBLIC SAFETY FOR ALL
I am committed to transforming our public safety in Minneapolis to a holistic, public health approach that gets people the help they need and prevents crime before it causes harm in our communities.
PRESERVING AND CREATING NEW
Housing is a human right. Because of my in-depth professional experience in the field of housing policy, I’ve been able to achieve real, attainable solutions that preserve and expand affordable housing and promote a healthier housing economy.
ENSURING A SUSTAINABLE CITY
Progressive leadership means a serious commitment to climate action. I support bolder sustainability initiatives so that Minneapolis can continue to lead the nation, following science and answering the urgent call to deliver environmental justice.
STANDING UP FOR RACIAL EQUITY
For too long, we have accepted a status quo that did not spread prosperity equitably across Minneapolis. We have begun to unwind that historic trend, and this work remains front and center for me going forward.
REPRESENTING WARD 11
The most important job I have is making sure this City works for you. Whether you are a senior or a small business owner, I'm always here to listen to concerns and take action.
