I am running to represent our district (6E04) as the Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (ANC). This is an important decision, and I’m extremely excited.
I’m a problem solver with a get-it-done attitude. This has been a key part of how I got to where I am today.
As a child, I grew up in poverty and witnessed domestic abuse in my home. For a couple of years, we lived in government-subsidized housing, depended on food stamps and the school free lunch program, and searched dumpsters and donation centers for clothing and supplies. It was a tough time, but I learned a great deal from my mother who went on to raise us as a single mother. She started a small business that was able to make ends meet, but we lived paycheck to paycheck and often struggled to keep the lights on and put food on the table.
With the support of friends, family, and teachers, I found so much support throughout my journey. Through working a full-time job, earning scholarships, and getting financial aid – I was able to attend community college, then university, and then graduate school. Since then, I have committed my life to public service in our nation’s capital.
I am ready to stand up and fight for…
Improving Housing Affordability and Public Spaces
Supporting Jobs and Small Businesses
Creating Community-Focused Public Safety
Enhancing Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Vehicle Traffic Safety
Modernizing Infrastructure While Preserving the Neighborhood’s Historic Integrity
From an early age, I learned the importance of hard work and helping others. Throughout my professional career, I have had the privilege of working with local, state, federal, and international governments; as well as industry leaders and non-profits. I will be ready to serve you on day one.
I am running for the Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (ANC) for the 6E04 district because I believe we can raise the standards of safety and opportunities in our district to ensure all individuals have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
I commit to fighting for you each and every day. I ask for your support and your vote on November 3rd for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner.
