I want to thank Jhoanny Perez for giving me the chance to speak tonight at your class for prospective candidates! Classes like yours, ones I attended as a graduate of CREW: Civically Re-Engaged Women run by Sharon Nelson, and the efforts of Dare to Run, Inc. will change our political representation for the better. Now more than ever we need strong and reflective leadership. More women. More Black and Latinx representation. More LGBTQ. More diversity – to reflect the diverse backgrounds and needs of the people and to SERVE the people.
