Since I came to the U.S. at the age of 5, I’ve lived the American Dream. My parents taught me that with hard work and a commitment to service, anything is possible. It was an honor to serve in the Navy with a tour of duty in Afghanistan. It’s inspiring to serve in the classroom as an educator at South Mountain Community College. It’s gratifying to run a small business. Now, I’m excited to challenge the status quo and fight for Phoenix families.
I’m running for Mayor of Phoenix because we deserve better than the status quo. For too long, political insiders have gamed the system at City Hall. All too often success is determined by who you know and the size of your checkbook – and hardworking Phoenicians are left without a champion.
I’m going to need your help and support. The political establishment and special interests are only looking out for themselves and they don’t want to see an outsider elected to leadership. This campaign won’t be perfect and it certainly won’t be easy - but it will be honest. Together, we can work to put Phoenix families first, not special interests. Together, we will change the status quo in Phoenix.
