I met Ali when our oldest children attended the same elementary school. Together, he and I led a PTO sub-committee. It was a joy to work with Ali. I learned that he has a great sense for what needs to be done and how to make it happen. A true visionary, his approach is always thoughtful, practical, and inclusive. Ali has a special way of building community. He listens and empowers others. His energy and inner beauty are contagious. I have no doubt Ali would run this city with these same attributes, and for that, we will all be better off. It is an honor to support Ali for Mayor.
