Statement:

 

I’m running for City Council because I want to create an environment where everyone feels empowered to speak up and engage in the community. The demographics of Auburn have been changing, and every person should feel like they belong in Auburn from the moment they move to our city. My passion is helping others, and I want to work on finding a solution to homelessness that works for all involved. I will continue to support small businesses and will work with local business leaders to help support the growth of the new and existing local economy. I was born in Oklahoma and raised in Libya, and in 2008, I moved to Auburn, and I’ve been an active member of the community through volunteering.

I started at White River Museum & later transitioned to volunteering at the Auburn Library. 2010 I’ve been an active volunteer with the Auburn Police Department.

Statement:

 

I am running for a third term, simply, I love the people and this city. Serving as your councilwomen for the past seven years has been a learning  experience while building those partnerships.

We were presented with challenges unforeseen in our lifetime due to the COVID Pandemic, I am committed to continue working to ensure my commitment to server everyone, especially while supporting public safety, economic growth, roads, parks, racial equity, social justice, and affordable housing. I am dedicated to making the city a place where our students can learn and be prepared for their future, while keeping our economy strong by supporting our businesses, educational opportunities, so our graduates can stay in their hometown to pursue their careers and earn a family wage job.

You can count on me to be an independent servant leader who will listen, with compassion. I would be honor to have your Vote!
