Christina is the Community Engagement candidate. She’s a mother, wife, substitute teacher, and community engagement advocate. Over the last five years she has gained first-hand knowledge of the inner workings of Raleigh by serving on the Parks Board, the Community Engagement Task Force, and taking advantage of free programs offered through the city, such as Raleigh Neighborhood College and Citizen Leadership Academy. Through the Parks Board, she has served on all four subcommittees, including Sustainability, Wildlife, and Urban Trees, Greenway, and Chairing the Parks Committee. She values Leadership, Transparency, and Communication. This is Raleigh, the Capital City, and members of this community need to blaze a trail for others to follow. Through social media, ongoing outreach, and regular Town Halls, Christina will be a true representative of our community's voice.
Raleigh has a bright future! Residents can choose to work together to make it better or continue down a path to inequity. Addressing issues such as gentrification of neighborhoods, better pay for police, fire, and city staff, and open dialogue between residents and their representatives, we can build a more equitable and inclusive city. With endorsements from the Wake County Democratic Party, AFL-CIO, and now Run for Something, Christina is proving that by representing a broad spectrum of voices, Raleigh can work towards the best solutions together!
