I believe the most important issue facing my Single Member District is the socio-economic division that segregates the community and prevents neighbors from being neighborly. I would like to work to develop a connection between all residents that allows for an influx of shared resources and a more evenly developed district.
I plan to be an effective Commissioner by hosting numerous in person and online events that engage the community. As a student-educator, it is my goal to keep my constituents up to date with information through social media, paper pamphlets and an active website. I am eager to create an open dialogue with those who are well aware of the role of ANC and those who have no idea about what we do. Every one deserves the opportunity to be heard and advocated for. I intend to listen to and act upon the most pressing concerns members of the community have.
I wish we were asked about how we plan to handle the concerns of those who do not currently have voter status. It is important for me to serve in the interest of every resident in the ANC 1B07 district. While canvasing, I met so many individuals who are unable to vote in this upcoming election. Yet their voices mattered most. I felt destined to ensure they weren't left feeling incapacitated. It is for this reason that I aim to focus on improving the quality of life for residents in the district. This means placing a large focus on biker/pedestrian safety, youth education and recreational centers, accessible citizenship courses in addition to enhancing living conditions for senior citizens housed at the Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments .
