WHY I AM RUNNING

Like many of you, I get frustrated whenever I turn on CNN, Fox News, or MSNBC and consistently see a tit for tat between our elected officials. Politics has gotten so party line centered that it has become a “you vs. me” “them vs. us” system of government that is focused more on polarizing sound bites than resolving critical issues.

I am running for elected office to change the narrative. I will bring a different leadership style to the forefront that is focused on building coalitions and relationships with all people and all communities. Regardless if you are Democrat, Republican, or Independent, I want to foster mutual respect between different perspectives in an effort to create a space where each side has a voice and a representative that will be open minded to everyone’s concerns.

In politics, there is a saying that if you stand in the middle of the road you will get run over. Well, I object to that notion. One must walk towards the center if you have any intent on shaking hands with the other side. 

I am a unifier. Our campaign will be centered on unifying people, with a unified message, to create a unified city. #togetherwewill #unify
