In the military, you moved around a lot. So why did you stay in Columbus?

The atmosphere, the middle-sized community. Not too big, not too little. It was a great place to raise children. I liked the uniqueness of the city. It’s young, but it’s old at the same time. So depending on what you like, you can find it here. It’s centrally located. If you want to be in a more lively community you can go to Atlanta, or you can go to Florida. It kept bringing me back, so I just figured that by the grace of God this was where I was supposed to be.

Why that area?

I liked it, first, because it was close to posting. … A lot of realtors tried taking me north quite a bit, because of the stereotype of south Columbus. We chose not to. … I have a pretty big house and it’s in a nice neighborhood. I love it, I’ve been there 22 years now. I wouldn’t give up my neighborhood for anything in the world.

Tell me about your candy store.

When I got out of the military, my husband was in Desert Storm at the time, and I made a promise to God that if he would bring my husband back safely to me and my children, I would do something for kids. So what we did was open a candy store called “Kids-n-Things.” At Kids-n-Things, we would sell candy for a penny to a dollar. We wouldn’t charge them any taxes. We would pay the taxes for it. Then we (partnered) with this program called Save the Earth, and we brought it to the candy store. And we would take gang members, troubled kids, and encourage them to go to school, teach them how to talk to their parents.

So the business no longer exists?

No. It lasted for about 5 years. The Council came about. I consider it a spiritual calling. The district was redistricting. The community wanted somebody grass-roots. They really didn’t want someone that was a politician. They came to me. It took them 5 months to convince me to even consider running for office because I felt that I wasn’t the right candidate. One, I was a woman. Two, I was Latina. And three, I had only lived in Columbus for two years. While I did vote and exercise the right to vote, I wasn’t really interested. … But things happen for a reason.
