Equity, Affordability, and Safety:
Equity is responsible development that allows our local businesses to flourish while bringing in more restaurants, retail, and green spaces. It is development that respects the integrity of our historic neighborhoods. Equity is when our zoned schools have sufficient resources.
I want to maintain the affordability of our neighborhoods for current residents. I support young professionals, families, workers, and others having affordable places to live. Others are welcome to enjoy the beauty of living in District 2 without our district becoming a concentrated pocket of poverty with depressed home values.
Residents want to be safe. I will collaborate with community groups that are doing the work to address the root causes of crime in our community, and I want to make sure our first responders have needed resources. I will also work to get adequate sidewalks and crosswalks so that we can safely move about in our neighborhoods.
