A Letter to Her Community

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.
