Q: What have you been do­ing dif­fer­ently to pre­pare for the runoff?

A: We have con­tin­ued our cit­i­zen en­gage­ment by be­ing fully present in the com­mu­nity. We have been knock­ing on doors, call­ing res­i­dents – es­sen­tially talk­ing to folks on their porches, in liv­ing rooms, at churches, gro­cery stores and the com­mu­nity.

Q: Are there any changes in what you want vot­ers to know head­ing into the runoff?

A: My mes­sage re­mains the same – my com­mit­ment to rep­re­sent the col­lec­tive voice of District 4 res­i­dents. As a col­lab­o­ra­tive leader, I will rep­re­sent key stake­hold­ers, the people who call District 4 home.

Q: Is there a spe­cific state­ment or mes­sage you want to res­onate with vot­ers?

A: The mes­sage I want to res­onate with vot­ers is that I will com­mit to us­ing my tal­ents, ed­u­ca­tion and ex­pe­ri­ence to ad­dress the so­cial and eco­nomic chal­lenges faced in District 4. In New­ton County, District 4 has the low­est ed­u­ca­tion ex­pectancy and low­est property val­ues.
