I am a pragmatic progressive who brings a voice of reason to City Hall and am proud to be your DFL and LABOR endorsed candidate.
I put our residents first, am accessible and responsive, listen with an open mind, carefully weigh decisions, seek compromise, and don’t ignore the basics.
Before serving, I was a small business owner, IT systems engineer, and proved myself as a leader through Longfellow Community Council.
Since being elected, I have made our city better in many ways, including co-authoring the paid safe and sick leave ordinance, which has protected 100,000+ workers and their families during the pandemic,
and establishing the Small Business Office. On public safety, I believe we need police and have supported funding for hiring more officers,
while also leading efforts to establish alternative responses where safe and appropriate, investing in violence prevention, and supporting creation of a broader Department of Public Safety.
Please check out my issues page to see where I stand, and my accomplishments page to review my record.
I’m the only candidate in this race with detailed positions on many of the issues, and with a record of community leadership prior to running.
I am committed to getting our city through the challenges before us and ask for your support. Thank you.
