My Top 3 Priorities

  • Housing – I will advocate for additional housing that is near public transportation, local retail centers within a short walk or bike ride from where people live, and aesthetically appealing developments that are positive additions to our city.
  • Road Decongestion - I will advocate for expansion of the free community shuttle, more aggressive programs from employers to reduce people driving alone to and from work, and exploration of additional options for transit as an alternative to driving.
  • Environment - I will advocate for higher levels of sustainability in new buildings, expanded use of recycled water, higher tree canopy coverage, and more efficient, effective public transportation.
