I spent the majority of my childhood growing up on the streets of South Tacoma. My great-grandmother's house was our home base, in the heart of the 5th City Council District. My siblings and I attended Edison Elementary, as the second generation to do so; my mother and her siblings were the first, and my oldest daughter was the third, attending Head Start at Edison. My great-grandparents moved to Tacoma when my grandmother was young, she graduated from Mount Tahoma. I am proud to be from South Tacoma. I decided it was time to run for office because of the changes that I have noticed these past couple of years. The influx of new people has created an atmosphere that is making it hard for our people to live, let alone thrive. I want to help retain the culture of our city, especially here in South Tacoma, and bring the focus back to the people. The people who have worked hard for the life they made here, deserve to thrive here. They do not need to be driven out by high priced housing and low wage jobs. We can do better than that.

What are the most important issues in the 5th city council district of Tacoma?

The most important fact about the 5th district is that we are the heart of Tacoma, we are the working class of Tacoma. With this in mind, we are usually the district that carries the brunt of growing pains in the city. That means we bear the weight of the houseless epidemic, that our people are affected by the high rents and low wages, the need for mental health services from the stress we endure, all of which have been exacerbated by COVID. These are heavy issues and someone with a sound knowledge of these problems must be the person to represent the people. As a service worker myself, I have first hand knowledge of what it means to go through these problems. I also have first hand knowledge on why we need police reform. These are the major issues I want to help my city overcome, especially in the 5th district.
