Welcome to Ward 5

As a born and raised Northsider, I am honored by my neighbors' trust in me to represent them in City Hall. I’m so proud of the campaign that this team ran, one that put its trust in the community in every sense, from using my experiences with murals to co-create a platform to the scale at which we reached new voters in creative ways through art and music. That is how we increased voter turnout in the Ward by 40%.

Now the real work begins. Winning an election doesn’t actually solve the challenges that Northsiders face. I’m ready to get to work — but I can’t do it alone. The same way we ran a different kind of campaign, I’m ready to be a different kind of Council Member.

Look for us to continue to be out in the community regularly, partnering with Northsiders to dream up better solutions for community safety, a more equitable pathway for economic development, ways to maintain affordability, and the environmental justice that we deserve.
