WHy I'm Running

Los Angeles is the greatest city in the world – but it is a city in crisis. With rising homelessness, crime, and poverty, it’s a city where our middle class is getting squeezed every day.

We need a fresh start. Coming out of the deadliest pandemic of our lifetimes, we have a chance to reimagine our city.


Imagine a strong homelessness program that actually helps families get off the street and into safe permanent homes, so they too can build back better.


Imagine clean streets where sidewalks are clear and accessible for everyone.

Imagine a safer Los Angeles that lives up to its name and allows the residents the feeling of calm, order and stability.

This is why I am running for Mayor of my hometown, Los Angeles.

A city that tackles pollution will do more than clean up our air and protect our environment – it will protect our health. It will fight asthma in our kids, protect our lungs and allow us to take deep breaths without worry. 

A city that makes housing affordable – so a hard-working family can buy a home in a neighborhood they want to live in – will bring stability for generations to come.

We must find a way to transition from the city we have to the city we need - without discomfort or displacement.

A city that nourishes the imagination of our creative wizards, supporting Hollywood and the jobs it creates, will fuel our local economy.

A city that welcomes everyone, like my parents who are immigrants, is a city that truly cares about its people.


This is not about going back to normal. It’s about being exceptional.  


This is Los Angeles. If we can imagine it, we can do it.
