(Moorhead, MN) -- A Moorhead City Council Candidate is running to represent Ward 1 in the upcoming November General Election.

Siham Amedy is looking to represent Moorhead's Ward 1. She joined WDAY Midday to share her vision for Moorhead moving forward. One of Amedy's key platforms comes in the form of affordable housing, which she says is a great way to begin helping people find ways to place roots and get involved in the city.

"Families like to have permanent solution[s], forever homes, "said Amedy, "Once we establish that affordable housing, we can establish stronger neighborhoods, stronger community connections, as well as address the public safety."

Amedy supports the half-cent sales tax that is also on the ballon in the upcoming general election. She encourages the construction of the center, saying the community would be benefited greatly by it. 

"The liberty has been a fantastic asset to the community, "said Amedy, "Having an expanded center that will allow for families to gather, that will allow for businesses to open around it and spur that economic investment - is really important right now for Moorhead."
