It was so great to meet you recently. I am passionate about increasing
economic opportunity for every community ensuring a high quality of life
for every Houstonian, and protecting every neighborhood from our next
flood. I invite you to visit our website <[link removed]> to
learn more about my positions on these critical issues.
Beyond the issues, I am running for Houston City Council At-Large 1 because
of my family and my students. My family came here from India; my dad came
here for graduate school, and my mom came here when she was 12. This city
and the country more broadly helped my family achieve their American
Dream--my dad started an engineering business, my mom became a college
professor, and I attended Rice University and then Harvard Law School.
However, for many children in Houston, this is not the reality. As a
teacher at an underserved high school, my students had the same aspirations
as I did and their parents worked just as hard, yet they were trapped in
poverty. Whether it was homelessness, flooding three times in three years,
or lack of public transit, my students faced structural inequities.
I am running for Houston City Council to Build One Houston where everyone,
regardless of background, has the chance to reach their dreams.
But, I can’t do this alone, and we’ve begun to build a movement. That
requires your help whether by contributing
<[link removed]> to our campaign or volunteering
<[link removed]> to join our team. Whatever
support you can provide, whether it’s knocking a few doors, calling some
Houstonians, or donating a couple of dollars, everything helps.
Thank you, and let’s build this movement together,
Candidate for Houston City Council At-Large 1
