ICYMI: Ali Brown Featured on MSNBC for feature on 2019 female candidates
“We can do this,” Brown said in interview with Chris Jansing
In case you missed it: Ali Brown was featured on MSNBC today, after being interviewed by Chris Jansing for a feature on 2019 female candidates.
“Even in a packed room, Ali Brown is hard to miss. She’s 6’3 and fired up about running for Indianapolis City Council.
…Record-breaking 2018 wins are now inspiring more women to become candidates.
‘Seeing women step up to run for everything from township board, all the way up to now seeing multiple women run for President, it’s all influencing me and showing me that we can do this.’
And do this they are.
Ali has a two-year old son and RFS [Run for Something] has a Facebook group just for parents.
‘…Talking about everything from what do you wear at an interview, to what’s the best method when you knock on a door and have your kid with you … Running for office is a lot like having a kid – if you wait for the right time, you’re never going to do it. But when you feel the wind at your back, with all these amazing women who have been elected – if it’s not now, it’s when.’”
Brown is running to be a voice for working parents and to fight for access to affordable childcare, public safety and complete streets, and mass transit. As City-County Councilor, Brown will prioritize issues effecting Indy’s workforce development, families, and children, in order to ensure that working parents have a champion in our Council. She’s been endorsed by Run for Something, Vote Pro Choice, the Victory Fund, Action Indivisible, Women’s Equality Day, the Marion County Democratic Party, and the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio Regional Council of Carpenters.
Brown lives with her husband, Zach, their son, Dylan, and their dog Franklin, in Winding Ridge in Northeast Indianapolis. To learn more about Ali Brown and her campaign, visit www.aliforindy.com.
