The most critical issue Single Member District 8B01 is facing is public safety. I intend to address it by partnering with MPD and other organizations to address the root causes, including creating and implementing recreational opportunities for youth and adults, increasing economic opportunities, and ensuring food security.
I will engage with residents in various ways through social media, monthly newsletters via email and mail, monthly meetings, and meeting people within their different communities.
