Why I Am Running

Why I Am RunningDear Friends,

I’m running for County Board because I will bring a new way of doing things – a new voice, and a new set of ears. John Vihstadt’s candidacy and campaign put all of Arlington on notice, not just Democrats, that there was a new way of thinking about solving the challenges facing Arlington. John’s message resonated with Independents, Republicans, and Democrats - even my parents supported him – and I can understand why. John’s candidacy brought into clear focus the challenges and deficiencies that voters felt with their current elected officials – a sense of being out of touch, a sense of not understanding a new fiscal reality, sandbox politics, and resistance to new ideas and new voices.

I will run a campaign that acknowledges the sentiment that November’s election tapped into while staying true to our Democratic values- equality, fairness, opportunity and inclusion. I don’t profess to have all the answers– but what I do know is that Arlington needs fewer answers from a select group of people, and more answers from voters and neighbors. As President of the Yorktown Civic Association, I’ve learned to seek the input from my neighbors about the issues affecting us. But I also believe that we must take a new look at how we approach issues county wide – for too long we have focused on one area or one corridor to the neglect of others – whether the issue is infrastructure improvements, school overcrowding, or transportation solutions like the streetcar.

My vision for Arlington holds true – an amazing place to live, work and start a family, and one that I am proud to call my hometown. In fact, my parents still live in the home that I grew up in. But it is time for a new generation in Arlington with a new set of realities, a new set of solutions, and a new generation of leaders. I believe that I can be part of this generational and attitudinal shift that will help us find new solutions in a new reality. I want to listen to you, the Arlington community, to come up with solutions that will benefit all of Arlington. I look forward to listening to you and earning your vote.
