"I believe Kenya is ready to bring bold leadership to the County of San Diego in areas of mental health, homelessness and foster care. She understands that there are more African American children in the County's foster care system than in the African American general population. She is ready to address disproportionality within the foster care system making sure all of our children are properly cared for and not left on the side of the road."
