Serious Talk. Seriously returns for season 5! We kick the season off with Tamika L’Ecluse. Tamika is an educator that is running for Council Member of Sacramento City District 5.
Tamika L’Ecluse and I chat about why she chose to run for office; how she plans to assist the diverse social and economical diversity that comprises District 5 of Sacramento City; how Emerge California prepared her to run for office; why Sacramento, and our society at large, is ready for change in who represents us in office; the misogyny that female candidates often face, especially in this age of anonymity that is allowed by social media; how her grandmother and mother influenced her lifetime to commitment to community involvement; how she found her place in life by serving others in need; how she learned to be resilient while her single parent was deployed while serving in the military; and the strangeness of finding family later in life.
Thank you for listening, Listeners, and thank you for sharing, Sharers, to my conversation with Tamika L’Ecluse. Be sure to follow Tamika L’Ecluse on Twitter, Facebook, or at her campaign website by clicking here.
