Hi, I’m Danielle Meitiv. You know me as the “Free Range Mom” because I fought back when the police detained my children for walking home from the park without an adult. That was a terrible situation where too much bureaucratic procedure got in the way of common sense.
But we fought back to protect our family and ensure that no other innocent family would suffer the way we did. And we won. We made the police and child protective services change their policies.
I’m running in the Democratic primary for County Council At-Large to stand up for all families. We need strong voices from outside of politics to speak up for our children and our neighborhoods. I’m the mother of two school-aged children and a climate scientist working for a healthy and sustainable future for all.
