Council District 8
With the blessing and support from my family and close friends, I began my campaign just over one year ago. On the campaign trail, we came up with the motto, “Connecting Diverse Communities,” since this was the entire reason I ran for office. In northeast Denver, we have a strong African-American population, a growing Caucasian population, and an often overlooked Latino population, and I feel called to bring these folks together to solve problems. Recent years have brought me a clear vision of my purpose in the community, and as the youngest member of Denver City Council I am working hard to live out that purpose every day.
When I “imagine a great city,” I imagine a world class city that is being led by areas like the Five Points. I imagine raising a family in a community that gives them opportunities to thrive. I imagine walking the streets and seeing the fruit of what happens when we “connect diverse communities.
