2020 Race Update: Marlene lost 43.90% to 55.20%
Marlene Katz is running for office because she cares deeply about our kids, families, and communities and she knows that with hard work and coalition building, she can bring real improvement to their lives. As a mother, she is concerned about how bullying and cyberbullying are hurting our kids. There are far too many teenage suicides, and we must address the opioid crisis with quality drug treatment and recovery programs. As a business woman she sees and understands the challenges that our small and local businesses face. And as an Interfaith Minister, she knows that the divisiveness that has entered into our politics is a real problem. She strongly believes that we need to change the conversation so we can begin to shift back to good-faith politics that bring unity to our families and communities. She has been in communication with mothers and fathers, business owners and workers, and single millenials and seniors in order to learn about the issues that matter to them. She is committed to making a difference by listening and leading to build a stronger community.
