Elena is a sophomore at UW-Madison running for the District 5 seat on the Dane County Board of Supervisors, which is the only district on the Dane County Board that is comprised mostly of students. Elena is a full time student, double majoring in Community and Environmental Sociology and Political Science with a certificate in Gender and Woman Studies while also working for the Campus and Visitor Relations Department at the University. Elena is passionate about the issues that impact students on a local level and is dedicated to elevating and representing the voices of students. Elena cares deeply about the environment and climate justice, affordable housing and homelessness, and expanding mental health and sexual violence prevention programming services in Dane County. As a biracial, queer, young woman, Elena is committed to finding mindful and intersectional solutions to the issues that effect constituents of District 5 and will fight to push a progressive agenda in the county. By running, she hopes that it will inspire other young people to run for office and fight for their well-deserved seat at the table when it comes to decision-making in politics.
