A Record of Service to the Community

Every one of these local leaders are supporting Ben in his run for the Council. Some of them have known him since childhood. Others know him from his political activism and professional experience. Some only met him recently, after he launched his campaign. But all of them know his record of success as a local leader, his advocacy for housing justice, and his dedication to the neighborhood, and all of them have faith that he is the best person to represent our community at City Hall.
