I am very excited to announce my candidacy to become your next State Representative for House District 62A. My motivation to run is simple: I am inspired by hope and driven by the notion that we can change the world around us, especially when we work together.
I see the challenges our community faces – but I am not satisfied in just recognizing these challenges. We need to look for opportunities to overcome them and make real change happen. Throughout my professional and personal life, I have worked with people across the state and across the political spectrum to form coalitions, build on opportunities, and channel frustration into positive actions that transform systems. I’ve sought out the voices of those who don’t feel heard in order to make sure the change that comes to our communities comes from within the community.
I convene people. This is more than what I do, it is who I am.
In a time when politics is especially divisive, it is more important than ever to have a legislator that can convene diverse viewpoints, find common ground, and chart a path forward. I use these skills every day, and would be honored to use them as your Representative.
I’ll be the first to say that I do not have all the answers in this race. I intend to spend a lot of time in the early days of this campaign listening, asking questions, and making sure that the platform I put forward truly is reflective of the interests and needs of this community. This is an approach that I will take not only as a candidate, but as your elected representative as well.
To my fellow candidates, I want to say that I am incredibly excited to run in this race with you. You are intelligent, you are caring, and I know you are deeply devoted to working on behalf of the constituents in this community. I look forward to the conversations that we’re going to have together and the amount that we’ll grow as a group during this campaign season.
Please follow this page for an announcement about our campaign kick-off in January, information on how to donate, and other campaign announcements and opportunities to get involved. I hope you will join me on this journey to move this work forward, together.
Let’s do this.
