Favorite quote or scripture related to justice:

“He has told you, O mortal, what is good.  And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” 

– Micah 6:8  

What does justice mean to you?

Justice is achieved not by tolerance of others, but by accepting people for who they are.  It is about ensuring that everyone is treated equally and fairly, not just in the judicial system, but in every aspect of our lives.  And where injustice exists, there must be no rest until it is understood, confronted, and eradicated.

Favorite thing about Sacramento:

Sacramento embraces newcomers.  It is a community where we can get things done to help our city and our neighborhoods better for everyone.
