I believe government exists by and for the people.
I believe public service is just that, service to the public.
I believe in a city that is equitable, where everyone is valued and heard.
I believe in representative, inclusive government with accountable, transparent decision-making processes.

When I learned that St. Paul’s Planning Commission had nine vacancies and no representation from Ward 4 while decisions were being made related to the soccer stadium, I took action. Together with other community activists, we organized and worked for 18 months alongside then-Mayor Chris Coleman and two City Council Members to fill out the City’s 30 boards and commissions with ethnically diverse and geographically representative appointments. When he left office, Mayor Coleman highlighted these appointments as one of his proudest accomplishments.
