R.A.C.E to the Top

Restore

Our community is safe only when everyone is safe. People whose basic needs are met are less likely to return to a life of crime. I support a justice system that values people more than punishment. Let's build a Saint Paul where people can participate in our democracy and rise above their past.

Access

Access to affordable living is what makes Saint Paul 'the most livable city'. I will continue to create opportunities that give people access to live better lives by supporting organizations that resource 

low-income communities to build.

Community

It's time to put community first in our new initiatives. It is my duty to fight for our city. I advocate for a Saint Paul where your humanity matters.  With the support of our district councils and residents, we must center the voices of community in decision making.

Equity

Equity is investing resources fairly. Our city can do better to address barriers and open opportunities for small businesses. With your support, I will work hard to pass policies to connect people to economic opportunities.
