As a community advocate for 16 years, I’ve seen first hand the positive effect our voices can have. Our district has so much to offer, and we need to make sure we keep new families here, as well as the established. Everyone deserves access to our green spaces, lakes, and beautiful way of life. Let’s remind Hartford what we have to offer!
I had an earlier introduction to politics than most. Before age two, I became a plaintiff in a landmark school desegregation case, Sheff v. O'Neill. I then attended a regional magnet school in Hartford that was set up in response to the Sheff v. O'Neill verdict. Ever since Kindergarten I loved learning and politics was my passion. My passions became a reality and when I was 12 I began to volunteer for the Presidential campaign of Al Gore. At age 16, I finished high school early and was selected by Rotary International to go on a humanitarian service project that brought me to the favelas of Brazil. I graduated from the University of Puerto Rico as a political science major and won a prestigious spot representing the government of Puerto Rico through the Cordova Fernos Fellowship Program. In more recent years, I have been a leader in CT’s fight for a $15 minimum wage, a state Dreamers’ bill, environmental justice, and women’s rights. If elected, I intend to focus my efforts on those kitchen-table issues that affect working families -- affordable healthcare, education, the environment, and economic development. Like many of you, I am proud to call Connecticut home and even prouder of what our district has to offer. I am committed to advancing policies that benefit all the citizens here and that optimize those qualities that make the Northwest Corner so special
You can count on the dedication of this community. There is always room for improvement, and I know I can support our district in the areas we are struggling. I will improve the quality or our children's education, community programs, while maintaining our beautiful outdoor spaces.
Help me win this election so I can get to work! Handing out flyers, phone banks, and donations are all great ways to help, but I also want to hear from you! Together, I believe we can find the solutions so our district can improve. Please reach out and get involved!
