Here is her announcement letter to the community:
Citizens of Antioch,
Over the past four years, I have been fortunate to be able to work in the community as the Police Crime Prevention Commission Chair. Now I am ready to take the next steps and announce my Candidacy for Antioch City Council to represent District 4 in the upcoming election.
I commit to continue to conduct myself with the same manner of respect I have used being a Police Commissioner. This has helped bridge some of the gaps that our divisive party lines have created. I will run my campaign with the same integrity and honesty I live my life by so I can prove that I am the best Candidate for the task at hand.
As a resident of Antioch for the past decade, I’m seeing the assets and trials of our community. I guarantee to do my best to celebrate these assets while at the same time digging into the trials our community faces. My background as a professional business Woman coupled with my MA in Counseling Psychology, will bring to the table experience working for both a profit and nonprofit organizations in technology, mental health, and social services this have given me the experience to be successful as the next City Council for district 4. In this role, I will be able to dive into the City budget and have comprehensive discussions with City staff regarding initiatives that are important to all of us.
- Community Services
- Business Development
- Allocation of City funds
I am looking forward to earning the right to represent you in District 4 on the Antioch City Council. Most importantly, I want to be that person you count on to have your voice heard as your representative to the City.
