I have skills and experience to serve on the city council and I have vision and passion to make a difference. I served on the city council from 2016-2020 and decided not to run for re-election to support Austin’s first Black council member, Oballa Oballa in his campaign in 2020. I have an understanding of city operations and issues and relationships with city staff and elected officials. I have a vision to make Austin even better. I have a passion for helping people and enjoy serving as a bridge between residents and city government. I am the board president of the South East Minnesota Arts Council and a member of the City of Austin Culture and Arts Commission and Human Rights Commission. I will respond to residents’ email and phone calls.
My vision for Austin is growth, sustainability and safety. Austin can grow by attracting residents, growing the economy, and celebrating diversity. More housing is needed at all income levels. Local government can support home-grown entrepreneurs, especially among immigrants and refugees. Sustainable Austin uses resources efficiently, leverages community assets and protects the natural environment. With safe neighborhoods and streets, Austin can continue to be prepared for emergencies.
Safe neighborhoods are a by-product of communities where children are cared for and educated and physical and mental health are highly valued. Local government can work to eliminate systemic racism and oppression, invest in children and families and encourage quality job creation. The economy needs to move away from low-wage, low-skill jobs that ruin workers’ health in order to ultimately reduce addiction, mental illness and crime.
