Tired of the pandemic and the toll it has taken on our health -- physical, emotional, mental. Tired of feeling isolated and unsure about the future. Tired of trying to make remote learning work for our kids and our students. Tired of worrying about our aging parents and seniors, our businesses, and our jobs. Tired of feeling left out of the conversations and the decision making in our city.
I pledge to listen to you and represent your real life concerns on the City Council because I *see* you. I see you in the hospitals, on construction sites, and in police cruisers and fire houses. I see you when I meet with you as a parent at the end of your rope because remote learning is not working for your child. I see you as my elderly neighbor whose routines have been disrupted and whose isolation has increased. I see you in the coffee shops and grocery stores, showing up to work every day throughout this state of emergency -- determined and tough, yes, but also worried and discouraged.
Our City needs leaders now who are willing to focus on the nuts and bolts of making City life work for everyone. The little things that aren't glamorous but are oh so important to our quality of life. From trash pickup to crosswalks to school assignments. I will be your At-large City Councilor of the small AND the big stuff, because I know that great things can only be built brick by basic brick.
With common sense solutions for our common purpose: a better Boston for all. Vote for me if you believe in unity over division to get good things done for the people of Boston, together. Support me today so that I can get to work Bringing Boston Back for all of us.
