Lane has represented the Westside, Southside, and Downtown of Tucson in Ward 1 since 2019. She is a second-generation Tucsonan, born and raised in the Southside.
Her parents both emigrated from Sonora, Mexico, and met in their early 20s at the El Rio Neighborhood Center. After graduating from Desert View High School, she left for the University of Alabama on a tennis scholarship, then returned home to work her way through courses at the University of Arizona. There she earned her Ph.D. in Teaching, Learning, and Sociocultural Studies.
She continues to teach courses at the U of A’s Department of Mexican American Studies and College of Education. Before running for office, Lane worked as a council aide for Ward 1 and spent over a decade working on issues related to sexual/gender violence, food justice, migrant rights, DIY bicycle mechanics, and ethnic studies. Lane is also a mother of four children, ages 3 to 13.
As a newly elected council member, Lane’s mission is to serve as the bridge between working families and city hall.
