“I am running because I believe in the promise of Los Angeles. We can preserve our beautiful, unique neighborhoods sprawled amid this metropolis, while tackling our homelessness crisis and building more affordable housing and creating more green space. Together, we can improve how our city is policed, while making sure that our families are safe and our neighborhoods thrive. But, we cannot transform our City without transforming our politics and rooting out City Hall’s culture of corruption and cronyism.”
