"Our diversity is our strength"
This city of more than 120,000 people has changed a lot over the years.
Today, Allentown is more than 50% Latino and Latina. My ability to speak Spanish puts me in a position to communicate with all of our City’s residents.
Our diverse neighborhoods each deserve customized strategies to accomplish residents’ goals, not a one-size-fits-all approach. I will make sure that City services are excellent in the East Side, the Wards, the South Side, West End, and everywhere in-between.
I am dedicated to all of Allentown and I will structure our community development efforts to meet the needs of all of our people and will build a city government that reflects our citizens’ rich heritage.
We'll make sure that jobs that come to the Lehigh Valley know about the skills present in our citizens and remove any and all barriers to residents getting those jobs. We will ensure that all Allentonians can depend on safe housing, irrespective of income. All of our kids will grow up in a secure environment, where they have every opportunity to reach their full potential.
