Filosofía política

As your Councilmember, I’ll fight to ensure that Berkeley remains a beacon of opportunity, diversity, and social justice. My parents immigrated to California from India. They didn’t have any money and English was their second language, but they were able to work hard and buy a modest home. I want that same opportunity for Berkeley’s next generation, including my newborn son, Austin. With over a decade of relevant experience, I know how to make government reflect our values. At the California Legislative Analyst’s Office, I helped win the fight for fair pay for low-wage homecare workers. I now manage a $900 million budget for the City and County of San Francisco’s Human Services Agency, which provides healthcare, meals, and other essential support to needy families. Serving on Berkeley’s Housing Advisory Commission and Community Health Commission, I’ve championed affordable homes and fought to save Alta Bates Hospital. As your Councilmember, I will work with our first responders to ensure public safety and fairness for communities of color; fix our roads and make them safe for all users; and ensure Berkeley recommits to its climate action goals. I’ve received the endorsement of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf because she knows I’ll partner with neighboring cities on long-term regional solutions to homelessness. I hope to earn your vote.
