Executive Director of the Safe Return Project
"I know that our government is far from perfect and good families can and are being left behind and struggling. I believe this is unfair and as a life-long community advocate I have both the experience and knowledge of what it takes to make the right change in our community. For the last ten years I have worked across multiple coalitions and collaborations to create meaningful change for everywhere I call home. Antioch is my home, and I want Antioch to be home for my family through multiple generations. I hope I can get you involved in not just voting for me, but also being part of this change together. I have organized communities to speak at public hearings and I would be honored to serve the community and create change as A City councilmember for Antioch’s District 1. "
