Thank you for supporting my campaign. These past three months have been an incredible experience. I've had a chance to meet with community leaders, speak at gatherings throughout the district, and work with the people who focus their energy on building and strengthening our neighborhoods.

However, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy for State Senate in the 37th District. It was a difficult decision, but after meeting with both Pramila Jayapal and Louis Watanabe, two of the remaining candidates for State Senate, I'm confident that the 37th District will be well represented.

I plan to continue representing the most vulnerable members of our community and working to improve our democracy through election reform.

Although this was not the right time for me personally, I look forward to future opportunities to represent our community.

Thanks again.
