I am a proud resident of the city of Boise. In pursuit of my own education, I learned that what I wanted to do in the world is to make a difference in the world by helping historically under-represented communities, like my own family, succeed. I seek to support candidates whose values reflect my own and whose ambitions inspire my own. It is for these reasons that I have chosen to support the candidacy of Lisa E. Sanchez for Boise City Council. I have known Lisa for years as a fellow advocate engaged in the advance of opportunities for communities of color.
The tones, volume and quickening tempo of national political discourse exemplify the special skill it takes to take what can, at times, seem like cacophonous and disparate sounds and shape them into something with the beautiful discernible melody of common interest and progress. What our world needs right now is as many skilled conductors as we can get. Lisa E. Sanchez has made beautiful music for years both in the pit itself and out in front, when it’s been needed. She has my vote. I hope that she can count on yours.
