In 2019, she served as the Voter Protection Director for Mayor Turner's re-election campaign and then returned to HCDP. Under her leadership, the Voter Protection program has grown to become a much larger operation, encompassing the poll watcher program, lawyer's boiler room, voter hotline, and election worker supplemental training program.
