For the last two years, I’ve proudly served our community. I use the skills I’ve developed as a social worker to solve problems, connect people to resources, and ensure Monroe County operates programs and provides services with equity. As a Democrat, my colleagues and I work hand in hand with County Executive Adam Bello to bring needed relief to our neighborhoods.
In 2021, I ran for office on a promise to fight for our families, expand economic justice, and build more equity in Monroe County. Today, I can proudly say I:

- Investing more than $7M for a neighborhood collaborative, bringing resources to underserved City neighborhoods.

- Supported more than $40M in pandemic relief eviction prevention dollars

Built Equity In Monroe County by:
