My Top 3 Priorities

  • Foster confidence in our City government by ensuring residents' concerns are heard and their issues are addressed.
  • Address traffic problems with technology, good planning, and wise transportation investments. Transportation Demand Management must be funded and must include impactful penalties and annual tracking of the required measures.
  • Prevent displacement and affordability issues. Our policies should place focus on helping people/businesses who/which add extra value to our community.
