As a queer, Person of Color living in Bend, Oregon I bring a necessary shift in perspective to the Bend City Council that has historically not been represented. I see our city from the lens of someone who has worked multiple jobs in Bend to pay the bills. I am currently a renter in Bend and have lived experience in the competitive rental market here.
I walk to work and see how the streets, sidewalks, and bike lanes can be safer for all transportation users. I see Bend growing and changing. I am here to support Bend in this shift. I will listen to communities who have not been represented on the council and bring them to the table.
