Last week I had a lovely chat with David Greenwald of the Davis Vanguard. We talked about how I came to run for City Council and my priorities as a candidate.
We also talked briefly about an idea that Will Alpers has to create more connection between the city and the university through a university branch of the Vanguard. I believe that by drawing on existing structures, like the Vanguard, we can build community that bridges the gaps between student and non-student Davisites. This would be a step in the right direction.

I’m running for office, but this election is far bigger than my city council campaign. This election is about continuing to elect smart, strong, ambitious, female leaders at every level. After Joe Biden announced Kamala Harris as his running mate last week, I phonebanked for the first time.
On Saturday morning, I joined Indivisible Yolo and Sister District CA-3 to call voters in swing states, one of which is Wisconsin, my first home. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I was greeted with a supportive community and amazing female leaders making their voices heard across the nation. Kelly and Rebekka created a welcoming environment for us newbies and a space for everyone to come together to share our wins for motivation. It was a fantastic and rewarding experience.
As Kamala said tonight as she accepted the vice presidential nomination, her mother taught her the purpose of life is service to others. My mother taught me the same. Let’s make our mothers proud and finally put a woman in the White House. Join me, Indivisible Yolo, and Sister District CA-3 each Saturday morning from 10 am to noon to phonebank for Joe and Kamala.
Together we can change the world.
