As a lifelong resident of Des Moines I understand the things we all want for our unique and beautiful waterfront community. And as an African-American and Haitian- American woman, I also recognize the value of adding diversity to your government.
I began high school right here at Highline Community College. Then, after much hard work and overcoming many challenges, finally attaining a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University Of Washington--the first in my family to do so.
After graduation, I worked as a Kindergarten Teacher then Office Manager for Highline Public Schools. This experience gave me the passion and know-how to ensure that all our students are treated with equity. On weekends I now teach ESL to students living and working in South King County.
In my spare time I also work with the Seattle King County and Vancouver NAACP to promote diversity and inclusive education across Washington State.
I'm running for City of Des Moines Councilmember to:
Completely revamp the transparency, accountability and public engagement of our city government. I support expanded Zoom access to public meetings, language resources and growing participation with free weekend classes in local government.
Improve our city’s participation in regional government so that we get our fair share of Capital Improvement funding on big projects like the Marina. Des Moines needs to be at the table and collaborate with all levels of government.
Create new opportunities for the many youth and adults now re-entering the workforce. We can both recover and improve our local economy with the right strategies.
Focus on the quality of life in our neighborhoods by fixing long-neglected roads, creating consistent signage and street lighting, and making local utilities more accountable to residents.
Create a community-based Airport Committee to effectively address the noise and health impacts from Sea-Tac Airport.
