Growing up here in St Petersburg, my parents taught us that you should treat your neighbors like family, bring people together whenever you have an opportunity, and find ways to give back to your community. Running for City Council has given me the chance to do all of those things.
Voters tell me about the issues they’re concerned about like housing, infrastructure, safety, the Rays, and more. When I hear their stories and discuss solutions, they see that local government can be a force for good. It’s been a wonderful experience and I’m ready to put those solutions into action.
