An Experienced Public Servant Committed to Cambridge
On Tuesday, November 7, 2017 I will be asking for your #1 vote for Cambridge City Council. I'm excited to announce my candidacy and share my story and motivations for running for office.
Let's start with Cambridge. The City of Cambridge has shaped who I am in many ways. I grew up here, and after law school, I returned home with a goal to serve my community. I have always been committed to service and have worked actively to develop stronger, more representative communities wherever I have lived. I now want to focus my energy on Cambridge. My leadership skills, experience in community advocacy, and background as a Cambridge native provide me with an authentic and unique perspective for Cambridge politics.
I currently work as a legal aid attorney at a Northeast Legal Aid, a non-profit legal services organization that provides free legal services to low-income and elderly people in northeastern Massachusetts. In my practice, I provide free legal representation to low-income entrepreneurs and small-business owners. I help individuals achieve self-sufficiency and get closer to their version of the American dream. This work promotes positive, community-based, economic growth.
I also serve on the Board of Directors of the South Asian Bar Association of Greater Boston and I am a member of the Women’s Bar Association, and the National Organization of Legal Services Workers - UAW Local 2320.
As an active member in the Cambridge community, I am currently board member of Cambridge School Volunteers, Inc, and the Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School Alumni Association. I also serve as a Commissioner on the Cambridge Human Services Commission.
Let's Shape the Future of Cambridge Together
As I spend the next six months campaigning, I will develop a platform informed by issues Cambridge voters care about.
I will need your help canvassing, knocking on doors, and making phone calls. I would love to have you as a team member!
