WHY I'M RUNNING
Durham has to represent our progressive conscience. We live in a state and in a country where so many of us feel threatened, excluded, and without a voice in politics. Durham has to expect its local leaders to live up to that responsibility - to represent us all, to respect all of our experiences, to be accountable to everyone’s needs, to look forward, and embody the values of the community.
I am running because I am eager to take on that responsibility. I will bring a strong and informed voice to City Council. Most of all, I will help us all live up to the progressive expectations that all, not some of us, have for Durham.
