I want to be your next Takoma Park City Council representative. As the President of the New Hampshire Gardens Community Association, I learned that it takes residents and city staff working together to get things done in Ward 6.

I want to listen and learn from ALL Ward 6 residents about what we need  to improve our community.

Vote for me on November 7, 2017. Together, we can create the change needed to Move Ward 6 Forward.

This election brings the highest number of female candidates in Takoma Park history

TAKOMA PARK, Md. - Campaigns in Takoma Park are ramping up their efforts as Nov. 7 approaches, and this year's ballot is turning heads.

Before this election, the highest number of female candidates on the ballot for city council and mayor was three, according to city records that date back to 1964.

This year doubles that number, as residents will see six female candidates on the ballot.

Six female candidates and five male candidates: a make-up many say shouldn't be unusual in any community but especially not in one frequently dubbed progressive.

"I was a little surprised at the fact that there isn't much of a longstanding history, but I'm excited about the possibility of getting the ball rolling and seeing that change as we move in the future,” said Talisha Searcy, Ward 6 candidate.

Many on the ballot share Searcy's excitement, saying a larger female presence in politics will serve the community well.
