My Fellow Community Members,
My name is Angel VanStark, and I am a second-generation immigrant and openly gay. At the age of 19, I became homeless. By the age of 23, I worked hard and was hired at two Fortune 500 companies, served as a Board of Directors for a community center, served on two commissions representing 88,266 constituents, and spoke at the White House on youth empowerment and then again, a year later, on solving youth homelessness. I was raised in Anaheim and my friends and family are in Anaheim. Harsh economic conditions have concerned me, and I want to fight for those that are suffering the most due to income inequality and make sure that people are treated fairly. I am not happy that 24% of children in Anaheim live under the poverty line. I will fight to end homelessness, create more transitional employment opportunities/job programs, and bring safety to the streets of West Anaheim by investing our current tax dollars in programs that have proven track records. I believe that as a community, we can solve anything! I ask you to join me on a journey to help Anaheim, District 1, elect a candidate of the people by the people and for the people.
