I grew up in the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park. When I was a girl, it was safe to walk to school. But with all the development happening, that's not true any more. I'm a community activist and educator running for Menlo Park City Council running to make sure our community is a safe place for children to cross the street, where renters and the elderly feel welcome and where all people feel they have opportunity. If you care about these issues too, please join me as a volunteer and vote for me on November 8.
