Power to the people!
I am a democratic socialist running for Madison’s common council in District 2. Madison needs a Common Council that will hold itself accountable to the most vulnerable. A Council that consists of the folks suffering the brunt of the economic turmoil.
I have lived in Madison my whole life. I have watched this city grow dramatically different from the one I remember growing up, as my community gets pushed further out of the city into the surrounding towns through aggressive gentrification and lack of affordable housing.
We need someone who will stand firm against the incredibly inflated housing costs, who will listen to the community’s continued cry for help, who will address public safety at the root causes of the problem and bring power to the most vulnerable in our community.
I am running because I love this city, our people, and our collective identity. I want to extend Madison’s honorable reputation as one of the most livable cities to our BIPOC communities.
