the Valley Greuel!!
I was deeply moved to witness President Barack Obama’s swearing in as the President of the United States. It is fitting that it has taken place on the day we commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Both men have had a profound impact on our nation. Both men have asked us to seize the opportunity that America offers and work together to fully realize our potential.
Growing up my mother often shared her experience about taking the bus from Ohio to attend Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. President Obama is right to remind us that working together will make us stronger.
I am honored to have received Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ endorsement. She has been a champion for the people who need our help the most – people living in poverty, veterans, the elderly, and minorities.
I want to honor Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy and build a Los Angeles that leaves no one behind, where all voices are heard and respected. Working together with community leaders, stakeholders and elected officials like Congresswoman Maxine Waters I know that we can build a city that works for all Angelenos.
