1. What is the most important issue in Council District 34 you would address if elected?

If elected, I would focus on bringing resources to my district to maintain and create affordable housing units to enable hard-working low-income families to stay in safe and decent homes within the community.


2. What other important issues would you address if elected?

Based on my experience as a community organizer, I would continue to focus on housing-related health issues such as asthma and lead paint poisoning and would ensure that my district had the resources it needs to keep our children safe from these illnesses.

I would also continue to advocate for resources to ensure that all children of my district are given quality educational opportunities.


3. What makes you the best candidate for this office?

I have lived in the Williamsburg-Bushwick Community all my life and I care deeply about the issues that affect my fellow residents. In the past 20 years I have learned to channel my passion for my community into political and social action that has improved its quality of life. If elected, I would use this experience and the resources of the City Council, to help my community to channel its energy into improving the housing, healthcare, and education systems that are so vital to our lives and those of our children.
