"ACtions speak louder than words, but inaction speaks louder than anything" - Matthew lehner
Leadership should be about getting things done for the people that are served and creating a positive impact. My record as a leader and activist clearly demonstrates this. I made promises, I kept them. We created a positive change and made the organizations I have served better than where we started. This record shows that I can lead effectively for all of us, as your District 18 County Supervisor.

CONSTANT AND TRANSPARENT COMMUNICATION
We communicated frequently with class members about what was going on in the Class of 2021. We created a class remind, conducted personal advisement outreach. Most recently, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, The class was kept in the loop about what was happening at all times with Prom postponement and how the situation unfolded. This was done through a series of letters, and video updates and check ins.
CREATED AN OPEN PROM COMMITTEE
This prom committee was open to all students. Regardless of whether they were in Student Council or not. We met once a month and were vital to plan Prom. Such as narrowing down student submitted prom themes to the top 3 themes, which were eventually put to the rest of the Class of 2021 to vote on. Even though the event has been postponed till December 2020.
BETTER REPRESENTATION ON STUDENT COUNCIL
The Class of 2021 was always represented well at Student Council meetings. I or the Class of 2021 Vice-President always gave an accurate and detailed report to Student Council about what the Class of 2021 was doing.

A summary of the topics covered at the Student Council meeting was always sent out as well.

CREATED SURVEYS AND APPROVAL POLLS FOR CLASS OFFICERS
As the Class of 2021 President, I always made it a top priority of mine, to include the people of the Class of 2021 in making important decisions.

Most recently, I created another survey that also asked for feedback, and also included a question about job approval of the Class of 2021 officers, and the Class Vice-President and I received a 95% job approval mark.
Leaders must look to the future, and this is exactly what I did as Class President, especially relating to fiscal responsibility and use of our money. We did not spend our money on one event or occasion. Rather, we ensured that money would be left to have an amazing Senior Ball, and enough money to possibly pass down to the next class that enters Hamilton. Fiscal responsibility also means being transparent with your funds. I made sure to frequently update the class on our financial status, as well as how much we were spending.
HELD A CLASS TOWN HALL
After the rapid cancellation and consolidation of activities due to the growing severity of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I held a virtual town hall over YouTube livestream, to make sure that if class members had any questions about the future of the class and our events, that they would be answered. I will carry this same spirit as Student Council President.
