Dear santa cruz Community,
Thank you for coming by to learn more about our campaign! I hope this is the first step of many in getting to know each other.
I'm running for Santa Cruz City Council because of the turning point we are experiencing as a community. What we do at this fork in the road matters. As we overcome the layers of crisis brought about by the COVID-19, structural racism, and entrenched inequity, we must embrace new ways forward that we've never seen before. We can champion the kind of change that liberates the compassionate core of this city and allows it to lead us forward.
And, we have what it takes to get there. We have every reason to claim our visions for something better. Look at the thousands of people who have been showing up for the deep change we seek.
We Can DO this.
We can do this in a way that honors the generations of resilience that have come before us.
We can do this in a way that honors the energy of the present.
We can do this in a way that drives our future with a vision rooted in our shared values: justice, equity, and well-being.
We can create decision-making that is well-informed, strong-hearted and demonstrably inspired by the idea of a whole new way of being in community with one another. These are the aspects of who I am that I humbly offer to this City by running for City Council. I would be honored to rise to this moment alongside you, Santa Cruz. Vote Kumar for Council in the upcoming November 2020 election.
Grateful for you,
