My Top 3 Priorities

  • 1. Public Safety: We need to engage and invest in our youth, expand community policing and empower neighborhood organizations. A CD9 resident on the Police Commission will be a key factor.
  • Housing & Homelessness: Protect existing affordable housing covenants and facilitate first-time home purchases. We must decriminalize homelessness and take a comprehensive approach that includes housing, mental health and general health needs.
  • Economic Development: Advocate and negotiate for careers and pathways in emerging sectors like Technology, Health, Social Services, Construction, and Entertainment. A partnership with leading companies and educational institutions is key,
