As your District 7 City Councillor, I will work not only to ensure fairness and equity within District 7, but also furthermore work to increase diversity in City employment and activities as a whole.

It would be my mission to make sure that the employees of the City of Boston are more reflective of the population of Boston. I will work to make sure that Boston City Hall is a place where you are just as likely to hear African Drums or Bachata or Koompa as you are to hear bag pipes or opera.
