Priorities

Recovery from the COVID-19 Pandemic- It is important to understand that recovery from this crisis is going to take time, and money. As taxpayers we deserve to know that our investments are going to projects that deliver returns to our communities over big investors. 

Community Based Equitable Development- I believe that development should support improvements for local residents by yielding good jobs, affordable housing, environmental benefits, and community amenities. 

Healing Racially Divided Communities- I believe that the best way to find answers to big systemic issues is to work through conflict that our council has historically feared. This includes seeking out our strongest critics and meeting people who haven't historically had a seat at the table where they are.

Addressing Chronic Homelessness- The biggest hurdle to overcoming the condition of homelessness is access to permanent supportive housing combined with wraparound services that support individuals and families in crisis. This includes job training, access to healthcare, mental health services, and a multi-modal transit system that is both accessible and efficient is instrumental to this goal.
