My story is simple.
I’m not a politician; I’m a Pasco resident that works hard to make a living for my family and a difference in my community.
Like many Pasco residents, I’m tired of seeing broad disparities and an overall lack of services for certain populations and areas of town. I’m altogether disheartened by the misrepresentation many of these communities are receiving and I’m not (nor have I ever been) interested in standing idly by.
I believe that direct action has the power to effect real, measurable change. It is due to this that I’ve decided to take the leap into politics and position myself to be the voice that the people of Pasco desperately need.
I know a great deal about the Pasco community.
I’m involved in various civic activities, to include co-chairing Pasco’s Cinco de Mayo event which attracted nearly 20,000 people. I’m also an active volunteer with the Downtown Development Authority and have worked in union organizing for OPEIU local 8 and AFT. Beyond these, I volunteer in the Pasco School system mentoring kids and am a member of various boards that make a positive impact in the community on a daily basis.
I have made it my life’s ambition not to be a statistic among statistics. In this, I work hard to set the bar high not just for myself but for those around me as well. As mentioned, I am not a politician, but I do understand political structure—and it is my objective to become a bridge between this structure and the people of Pasco to ensure needs are getting met and progress is being made.
