Shout-out to Franca Muller Paz: Even during the middle of her historic third-party run for City Council this year, Franca has still found time to be an awesome BTU building rep, a leader in the Digital Divide coalition, an active member of the BTU Organizing Committee, an adviser and mentor to the student organization SOMOS, and more. She is the total package!
