I joined the Richmond City Council to continue moving Richmond forward in a manner that respects its citizens and heritage. I understand that safe streets, good schools, and economic opportunity will continue to advance the City of Richmond. I know that affordable housing and the Fight for Fifteen are necessary for immediate survival. I also know that issues in wealth, economics, education, and social mobility are systemic and if we are to truly transcend them we must aggressively attack them at their root and nourish fertile ground in Richmond. I understand that community engagement and economic opportunity are prerequisites and catalysts to closing those gaps.
Now as a member of Richmond City Council, I will continue lean on my experience working in diverse capacities on behalf of the city I love. The people of Richmond elected someone who is a product of Richmond’s history, community, and policies to serve on our City Council with a direct and strategic focus for overcoming our systemic issues. I will continue to advocate on the peoples’ behalf so that no one is left behind or pushed out. Instead I will fight to ensure city opportunities and priorities are conducive to the well-being of all Richmond citizens.
