DEMOCRATS FOR JUSTICE

City Councilmember (ret.)
My 3 year daughter and her future is most important to me at this point in my life. My drive to improve our cities and State is a priority for the benefit of Sora and all of our other children. I want to lead by example (a characteristic sorely missing from the Trump Administration) and encourage them to learn about the importance of representative government, checks and balances, and the power of the people to work towards the principles inherent in the ideals of the Democratic Party: to achieve life, liberty, and justice for all in an equitable manner.
I humbly ask for your vote as an active member of the Democratic party as a voter, local elected official, and activist for more than 20 years. I am a proud Pasadenan and was honored to serve as the youngest Councilmember in city history from 2007-2015 and one of only eight women elected since the City founding in 1886. I am the daughter of two retired union members, Cement Masons and American Postal Workers Union. I am also a member and volunteer of numerous community organizations including as a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Chair of the Greater Pasadena Area National Women’s Political Caucus, and Board Member of Abode Communities, an affordable housing developer.
I have experienced the effects of racism and sexism in literally every aspect of my personal and professional life. It is not something I wish on anyone and it is my hope that though the important work of the Party, together with everyday members of the community and our elected officials, we can work together to achieve racial justice, COVID-19 relief, fully funded public education, criminal and campaign finance reform, and an end to gun violence.
Thank you for consideration of your vote for myself and the other highly qualified members of my slate, Democrats for Justice. For more information, call me at (626) 789-4939.
