I am running for the 4th district seat on the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners because I have always had a passion to serve my community. I am a servant to my community and, as such, the onus is on me to listen to our unique needs and bring them to the forefront when decisions are made by our County Board that impact our quality of life.
The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners, operating a $2.4 Billion budget, is a seldom seen level of government that plays a key role in advancing housing strategies, accessible transit systems and holistic, person-first models of public health, human services, environmental justice and corrections.
Hennepin County is one the most diverse counties in the state with over 30% of our population identifying as persons of color. With 7 commissioners, the Hennepin County board lacks diversity and, as such, is not reflective of the communities in which it serves.
As your next Hennepin County Commissioner for the 4th District I will:
- Amplify community voices in decision-making.
- Prioritize a massive reduction in the amount of inequity across all county departments.
- Make the 4th district seat on the County Board a true reflection of the diverse communities it serves and a safe place for all of us to inform policy decisions.
