Mount Vernon home owners are plagued with high tax burden. I will work to expand the commercial tax base to relieve homeowner tax burden. I will address quality of life issues, which include removing trash and litter from our streets; repaving roads to eliminate potholes.
Every citizen deserves choice and access to safe, decent affordable housing. I have worked in affordable housing for many years providing affordable housing to special populations (Victims of DV, persons living with HIV and AIDS, homeless singles and families). Mount Vernon has always embraced affordable through new development and owner participation housing subsidies programs like Section 8, tax credit properties and HUD VASH in the community. We must continue to maintain our history.
