I believe in environmental justice, equity and inclusion. The social movements currently vibrating our country have brought new clarity to some and affirmation to others, that the marginalized in our culture need all of our support to enact real change. Using an intersectional approach to include all disenfranchised groups, I hope to provide space for honest and inspired conversations on how to support each one of our diverse community members. I am willing to put the time and energy in to aid in the changes needed for us to collectively move into the future.

As a member of the Arcata City Council I want to address the needs of people and work together to create a safe and livable community for everyone.
The next few years will largely be committed to damage control. Balancing optimism with reality will be difficult. A significant challenge will be finding, or reallocating, money and resources to accomplish any goals. Arcata needs fresh perspectives to navigate these troubled waters.
