Ayala discusses the top priorities she’d have if she’s elected LG (#1 is improving our health care system, #2 is investing in communities and infrastructure to support high-paying jobs, #3 is equity/justice including criminal justice reform); her family background (she says she’s “very diverse…I’m Afro/Latino, Lebanese and Irish); the importance of cybersecurity for business, schools, etc.
