1. What qualifications and experience do you bring to this office?
My commitment to service and my community. For the majority of my life, I have lived in District 6. I obtained my first paying job in District 6 at Kroger in Southgate Shopping Center, which is now Cash Saver. I have made a valiant effort to remain rooted in the community while simultaneously establishing connections with all levels of government to ensure the voices of neighbors across my entire District are heard and included in decisions that impact them. I have experience managing teams on a personal as well as a professional level. I know how to create, implement, track, and evaluate. I fought for my life and am a Cancer Survivior and I will fight for my community just as hard, to obtain what they have long deserved.
2. What do you see as the top two issues facing this office and how do you plan to address these issues?
Accessibility and Transparency. Time and time again, I've heard constituents express issues that they have been unable to address with their councilperson for a myriad of reasons. Thus, this leads to decisions being made that impact them but don't include everyone. I pledge to maintain what I like to call, "Constituent Hours." This is a specific amount of time set aside weekly, for my constituents to speak with me at City Hall and express their concerns uninterrupted.
3. How do you plan to involve citizens in the decision making process of this office?
I plan to remain engaged with neighbors as I always have. I pledge to hold town halls and community meetings so I can hear and see how they feel about city decisions that will impact them.
