My Top 3 Priorities

  • Solutions for traffic gridlock: Laurie will take advantage of the innovation and intellectual capitol that surrounds us to create long-term solutions for traffic gridlock.
  • The housing options we need: Laurie will work to create a variety of sustainable, transit oriented housing options so our youth, workforce and seniors who have built their lives in Fremont can afford to stay in Fremont.
  • A strong voice for our region: Laurie will work with leaders across the Bay Area partnering with other municipalities, businesses, organizations and schools to create a comprehensive approach focused on regional solutions
