A New SHEriff in TOWN
Community, we did it!
We organized. We worked. We fought. We voted. And we were heard!
I am so proud and honored to have been the torch bearer for this movement—and this moment—of community empowerment. I can never properly express my gratitude for all the work that has been done on my behalf.
But this isn’t about me. This is about the future of our communities.
A future where we are the builders of our own homes and our own opportunities. A future where we are treated with respect and dignity by law enforcement and political power brokers. A future where the community has a direct line to the decisions made at City Hall.
A future where our voices and our lives matter. Right now, we celebrate the work we’ve done.
We, together, have brought a new day to southeast San Diego. We have woken up to the power of our own voices, our own instincts, and the sheer power our collective will.
I want to thank everyone who has stood with me over this journey. Make no mistake: Every endorsement, dollar, door knocked, phone called, sign waved, and event hosted brought us one step closer to our seat at the table of power. You made a huge difference in a campaign that the political establishment never saw coming.
Most importantly, the community knows how to hold City Hall accountable to their promises. And I cannot wait to work with the community to keep mine.
But this is just the beginning of the journey. Community, we are just getting started.
