It's Time for Courageous Leadership

Hello!

I’m a lifelong resident of South City, graduating from Ponderosa Elementary, Alta Loma Middle School, and South San Francisco High School.

During my childhood, a close family member sustained a traumatic injury and passed away 10 years later. That experience motivated me to study Human Developmental and Regenerative Biology with Government at Harvard University and conduct neuroscience research at Massachusetts General Hospital.

I began my education with the motivation of my family, but today I wish to use it to empower and improve the lives of those around me.

I love South City, and that’s why I’m going to fight for it. We are facing an unprecedented economic and public-health crisis, and our City Council needs courageous leadership. As your councilmember, I will fight for rental and mortgage payment assistance for residents during the coronavirus pandemic. I will address climate change, improve public safety, encourage affordable housing, establish universal Pre-K, invest in our community’s infrastructure, and combat all forms of hate and racism.

I stand with unions and the working class of South San Francisco, and will fight for the rights of all workers. I do not accept money from private developers, fossil fuel companies, or corporations. I will prioritize honesty, transparency, and accountability.

I’d be honored to have your vote.

Thank you,

James
