Her training and experience has given her a unique skill set geared towards understanding the implications of decisions for her district, and for the city.
“I endorse Halisi because she takes the time to listen to concerns and respond to them. She is articulate and thinks broadly and complexly about issues. She seeks to understand, and to use her understanding to benefit the community at all levels.” ~ Katherine
