Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • I believe we can promote living wages and economic opportunity for all, without overdeveloping the city and without ruining our neighborhoods.
  • I want to continue Santa Monica's new vision of proposing aggressive climate action, restoring our kelp beds, and enact a "Green Hour" in our city where kids engage in outdoor activities daily.
  • My philosophy is simple - listen to the community and enact policies that meet our basic needs.

Biografía

 

 

"Mende will be an advocate for people who don’t normally have a voice. She’ll put peace, planet and people over profit in everything she does. She’s raised three fantastic, healthy children. She’s performed poetry live all over Santa Monica, Venice, Hollywood, the South Bay and Seattle.

If you’ve had the pleasure of meeting her, you know, as I do, that she’s a force to be reckoned with when it comes to protecting the rights of people and the environment. She’s also a vegetarian and an advocate for animal rights.

We met earlier this year working for the Bernie Sanders Campaign and became acquainted through passion for political change.

Mende's knowledge and volunteer experience with organizations like MoveOn.org, Greenpeace, Environmental Defense Fund, Sierra Club and Earth First will guarantee she’ll have a keen eye on the landscape Santa Monica holds dear, with an eye for renewable energy and progressive politics that will set an example for California and the rest of the United States.

As a Green Party Candidate, Mende will serve our community on the basis of the four pillars: Grassroots Democracy, Social Justice and Equal Opportunity, Ecological Wisdom, and Non-Violence. As a Santa Monica resident and voter, I will cast my vote for her on Nov. 8."

- Will O'Reagan

 

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

 

As you consider who will do a better job for Santa Monicans, please consider Mende Smith: poet, environmentalist, journalist and community activist.

My philosophy is simple - listen to the community and enact policies that meet our basic needs. I stand for more parks and open space, affordable housing and environmental sustainability.

I believe we can promote living wages and economic opportunity for all, without overdeveloping the city and without ruining our neighborhoods.

I also believe in an ethical government that helps those who don't have the basics, enabling them to provide for themselves, their families, and to contribute positively to their communities.

The political revolution happening-nationally can also happen here in Santa Monica.

In addition to these goals, I want to continue Santa Monica's new vision of proposing aggressive climate action, restoring our kelp beds, and enact a "Green Hour" in our city where kids engage in outdoor activities daily.

I'm ready to bring creative solutions to our daily and long-term challenges, and to strengthen our local democracy by giving you a greater voice in your local government.
