Why I Am Running
I moved to Mid City West over a decade ago. I love our area for its walkability, its diversity, and its feeling of community – something I don’t take for granted in the middle of a metropolis. Before COVID, I could frequently be found biking to Friday night jazz concerts at LACMA, or walking to Goal on 3rd to watch football while grabbing a meal (wings, fries, and a Guinness). I am an experienced and action oriented candidate. Some issues I’m passionate about:
- Ensuring that our streets are safe for all; including pedestrians, bikers, and e-scooters
- Creating an easy and actionable plan to make our community more environmentally friendly
- Raising public awareness about city resources to make their distribution more equitable
- Diversifying city leadership by making the elections process more transparent
- Opening clear lines of communication between residents and city leaders – especially when related to zone 5 specific issues like the metro and LACMA constructions
- Adding a dog park to the green space near the Tar Pits
To start learning how I plan to take action on these things, see some of my blog posts. And don’t forget to sign up for my mailing list so you can be alerted as I post new thoughts and action plans throughout my campaign.
Of course, in addition to pushing on the issues that I am passionate about, I will learn about and advocate for the big and small issues my constituents care about. I plan to get a phone line dedicated to council work and will hold bi-weekly “office hours” via Zoom and in person (once safe).

- Equitable Distribution Of City ResourcesThe city of Los Angeles gives millions of dollars in funding each year to programs that are intended to equally serve city residents. Unfortunately, a lack of transparency about how to engage with these programs means that frequently the generalContinue reading “Equitable Distribution Of City Resources”
