Brief background bio (a single paragraph):
I am a single mom of two grads one from UD. I am a Temple U grad. I have worked in child advocacy for years and ran for office and obtained office in Council in Upper Darby Pa. I am a advocate at heart and I can not wait to serve in April.
I think that all of Newark needs to work together for the best in Newark. I live in a district area that has been forgotten slightly. I want to bring thier voices with me. I want to find a way for all of us to live together in peace.
I would like to try and bring order to this. Not that there isnt any but we do have issues with abandon cars,racing down the streets while people and children are crossing the road and the students need parking added when ever there is a building built for residency.
Whenever there is a building and or structure built on Campus all voices need to be present and or opinions given. This is why I am ran for office becuase there should not be an us verses them..it should be a we. I am planning to bring my constuients into the fold and keep them updated with any changes in our community as far as development is concern.
I am pleased with the way the covid response was done here in the great state of Delaware. My Mom and my Dad suffured from covid and it was a very trying time for me. However, the response and the medical alertness given during that time was great. My parents lived through it and are vacinated. I am more than happy to be one to have not lost my parents.
I do worry about the students and some of thier disreguard for proceedures. I hope that they come to light with the seriosness of the disease and realize that they are our future, and we care deeply about thier health.
Well, I am a the mother of a environmentalist and a designer. I want the air that we breathe to be clean which means that the trees and grass and nature (navtivity) is needed in Newark. If building in Newark interferes with keeping our evironment safe I will question its need.
