I’m running for City Council because I believe that Ann Arbor residents pay for and deserve better-than-basic public services, because we are in the midst of a housing and affordability crisis that is threatening our city’s future, and because access to clean drinking water should be a basic human right. I'm running to help achieve our ambitious carbon-neutrality goals and because we should always be expanding upon the city’s long history of leadership on human and civil rights.
Most importantly, I’m running because I am the most experienced and qualified candidate to tackle these challenges. After five years working as Constituent Services Director and Legislative Director for the Democratic Floor Leader in the Michigan House of Representatives, I know how to work across political divides to get things done and understand that government should work well for the people it serves. As President of the Jim Toy Community Center and LGBTQ Liaison to the Mayor, I am invested in our community and have dedicated myself to improving the lives of my neighbors.
Ann Arbor is already a great place to live, but we still have work to do if we want the Ann Arbor of tomorrow to continue being a prosperous, inclusive and desirable place to live, work, raise a family and eventually retire. I am proud to have the support of many leaders in our community, and over the coming months, I hope to earn your support as well. I look forward to talking with you soon.
All the Best,
