|When it comes to governing, respect isn’t something that just feels good. For those of us who believe in big, bold progressive change, respect is an ingredient essential to building coalitions and reaching consensus.
And respect isn’t agreeing about everything. My colleagues and I have asked tough questions and sometimes disagree with one another. However, even when we disagree, it is crucial we don’t lose sight of the important work ahead of us.
In December 2020, San Diego will see five new City Council members and a new Mayor assume leadership. This moment will represent a remarkable opportunity for our city. However, our highest hopes are only achievable with leadership that commits to earning and maintaining respect for one another.
Here is my promise to you: if elected, I will serve my time as a council member the same way I serve as a Trustee – with a commitment to show up for the right reasons, to be prepared, and to earn the respect of my peers so we can accomplish the big goals our community demands.
Will you contribute today so we have the resources we need to fuel our campaign?
