The Eastside needs a stronger voice at City Hall to maintain safe and healthy neighborhoods, protect renters and increase affordable housing opportunities, help small business revitalize our economy, and protect our environment.
I have been living in Santa Barbara and working in economic development for a decade; first at Women’s Economic Ventures, and now at a national non-profit organization, utilizing innovative financing to promote sustainable development, create good jobs, and build better housing.
I am running for Council to provide the type of leadership that empowers and improves the lives of working families in Santa Barbara.
I will bring my experience working with federal assistance programs and creative problem solving skills to addressing current and future issues. I will collaborate with city staff and policymakers so that we work together for all the residents and businesses in a productive manner.
I understand first-hand the needs of young working families. My husband and I worked hard to purchase our first home and establish roots to raise our family in Santa Barbara. I am dedicated to making our neighborhood a better place for all of us.
I would be honored to have your vote.
