Oak Habor City Council, Position 3
Joseph is running because Oak Harbor City Council, in his eyes, is not reflective of the community as a whole. The majority of council members are older white conservative males. They are out of touch with youth, people of color, LGBTQIA+ citizens, and the working class. Joseph knows that he too is a white man, but it is his intent to amplify the voices of people of color, women, youth, union workers, and working class residents. When elected he will push progressive reform through the city council that creates a citizens coalition focused on civil rights, expanded protections for unions and workers, and a more accessible transparent local government for the people.
