It’s no secret— we are long overdue for a more diverse Assembly. As a biracial man (black/white), I will represent the BIPOC community and highlight the importance of diversity and culture within our city. We need a leader who will fight to ensure that we receive fair and adequate funding for our newly formed board of Systemic Racism through the city. We need a qualified leader, of color, to serve in our assembly in order to be inclusive of the true representation of our diverse city. We need a leader who will make it a priority to ensure that our students are learning about black history, LGBTQ history, women’s history, and continue learning about Alaska’s indigenous history in our schools. We are all responsible for our future, and our future starts with our children and their education.
I have spent my entire life fighting for causes that I believe in, and I trust that I will be a fierce advocate for the people of Juneau as well. This election is not about me– it’s about our community. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to listen to people and understand their aspects of the issues we face as a community. I plan to sit down with our community members, hear your stories, and come up with solutions together. Most importantly, we need a leader who has the ability to compromise, evaluate issues from every angle, and work together with a bipartisan mindset. No matter our political affiliation, when we work together we thrive together. Our unity is our greatest strength!
