My platform is built around three principles: Accountability, Community, and Transparency- principles by which all elected representatives should be guided. Are we holding our county accountable for spending more, while important services like CPS and Early Intervention services are underfunded, and understaffed? Do we consider how to support our amazing community of MWBE/LGBTQ+ owned small businesses? Or how to expand job training programs, and support workers’ rights, instead of delaying union contract negotiations? Why not require all county legislature meetings to be live-streamed on social media, with ASL interpretation, and captioning on all video or television messaging from the county?
Do you believe in a better county government? A government that works for the people, because it is made up of people passionate about their communities? A government that chooses to act, instead of react? I do. And that’s why I’m running to represent the 23rd Legislative District in the Monroe County Legislature!
Let’s work together to create a better county government for the 23rd legislative district!
