Thanks for visiting my website. I started a campaign to run for an at-large seat on Raleigh City Council in 2019 but dropped out after winning became almost mathematically impossible (see the announcement here). I may decide to run again in the future, but for 2019 I will be trying to raise awareness about this election, the issues at stake, and the candidates that I am supporting. I am not affiliated with any candidate's campaign. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for things that you think I could do that would be helpful, please let me know!
