Biographical Information

Why do you want to represent the citizens of Charleston on City Council?

Currently the City has established subcommittees to review affordable housing and short-term rental ordinances. While separate issues, both relate to the growth and housing demands facing the City. What is your position on these issues? How should City Council address these issues?

The City recently adopted a 6-month moratorium for James Island, which included provisions to not allow new developments of more than four residential units per acre or larger than 15,000 SF. What is your position on moratoriums? Are they are good mechanisms to control growth issues or not?

How will you prioritize funding for recommendations within the City's Sea Level Rise Strategy Plan based on the many disparate needs within the community? Which specific projects do you see as most pressing to reduce the risk to homes and businesses?

What solutions do you propose to address traffic congestion and transportation concerns in Charleston? Do you support promotion of carpooling (e.g., incentivizing with reduced parking fees)? Please explain.

What is your position on a cruise ship terminal?

What is your position on providing more bicycle lanes in Charleston? If you support providing more bicycle lanes, what steps will you take to provide these lanes?

Do you support repeal of the Heritage Act to allow local governments to manage monuments on their public property in keeping with local community wishes?
