I’m happy to announce that I’m running for alderperson for Madison’s District 12. I’m a democratic socialist, and I believe that we need to make big changes at the city level for our lives now and for the sake of future generations. We must develop a sustainable Madison, one that offers living wages, good housing for all, racial justice, and access to healthcare. District 12 is at the front of many of these issues with F-35’s flying over our homes, the loss of hundreds of union jobs at Oscar Meyer, and the raging COVID pandemic. Madison needs municipal internet, a public buyout of MG&E for cost-effective green energy, and affordable development for working people in our community. COVID has shown us that we must stand together and fight for basic human needs for everyone in our communities. We can’t just go back to ‘normal’. Let’s build the future together. An injury to one is an injury to all.
