Week 1 / by Monica Mallon

I launched my campaign a week ago, and what we have been able to accomplish is incredible. Sal Pizzaro wrote about my campaign in the San Jose Mercury News. I've been interviewed by Chris Nguyen from ABC 7 News, John Ramos from CBS SF, and Ann Rubin from KTVU. And my campaign has been discussed on various radio stations. I also found out today that my KTVU story was on Fox 29 Philadelphia. People are starting to realize that politics should be about representing people and that social media can be used to engage young voters. I've seen friends who previously found politics to be boring, engage in political discussions. So many of my lifelong dreams come true this week, and I feel like my campaign is making a difference. 

I want to thank everyone who has shared my story and helped to spread the word about my campaign. None of this would be possible without you.

I'm very proud of what this campaign has been able to do this week, and I can't wait to see what happens next week.
