Sonoma County 3rd District
It’s official, I’m running!
I am thrilled to announce my candidacy for Supervisor of Sonoma County’s 3rd District. I have always felt a deep commitment to public service and a desire to make a positive impact on the lives of those in my community. My tenure on the Santa Rosa City Schools board for the past 5 years has allowed me to witness firsthand the challenges that many families face. This unique perspective gives me valuable insights into the needs of our community.
My primary focus is addressing the key issues that our district faces. I am dedicated to increasing accessibility to vital services including language justice, promoting housing affordability, advocating for tenant protections, fighting for a livable wage, and improving our road infrastructure. These are critical areas that affect the everyday lives of our residents, and I am determined to bring about positive change.
Having been a resident of the district for over 30 years, I am intimately familiar with its neighborhoods, its people, and its diverse cultures. Notably, I am fully bilingual, which is essential considering the 3rd district has the largest Latinx population and Spanish speakers. I am committed to ensuring that the voices of all residents are heard and represented. Language justice is of utmost importance to me, and I will strive to make services available in people’s primary language, promoting inclusivity and accessibility for all.
What sets me apart as a strong candidate is my extensive experience and qualifications. Having worked for the County for over 7 years, I possess a deep understanding of its various departments and the services they provide.
One crucial aspect of my platform is sustainability. Sonoma County is no stranger to the devastating impacts of climate change. As your supervisor, I will prioritize preparing our county to face the various climate disasters we have been experiencing. I will work towards implementing proactive measures, investing in resilience strategies, and collaborating with experts to safeguard our community from the effects of climate change and also respect the value of the workers that do the work. It is our responsibility to protect our environment, preserve our natural resources, and ensure the well-being of future generations.
Looking to the future, my vision for our County is one of prosperity, inclusivity, and safety for all. I believe that families should be able to live where they work, build wealth, and create a better future for generations to come. Sonoma County is a place of immense wealth, and it is our responsibility to ensure that everyone benefits from its opportunities. Simultaneously, I am committed to implementing sustainable practices that will help preserve our environment and safeguard our planet for future generations.
With your support, together we can build a stronger, more equitable Sonoma County. I am excited about the possibility of serving as your supervisor and working tirelessly to make a positive difference in our district. Let’s create a brighter future for all of us, where everyone feels included, valued, and safe, where language justice is upheld, and where we are prepared to face the challenges of a changing climate.
