My common-sense, community-oriented platform is simple—C.O.P.E.: Crime, Opportunity, Public Health and Education.
I am focused on the needs of District 13, not a political or personal agenda that will destabilize our communities.
When elected, I also pledge to join the bipartisan Common-Sense Caucus in the City Council to fight against legislation and policies that undermine the quality of life and safety of the voters I represent.
