I feel the most important issue facing my SMD is traffic safety. Fordham Rd, MacArthur Blvd, Loughboro Rd, and Massachusetts Ave are well-known places where reckless driving is typical. Stop signs, red lights, and speed cameras are treated by some drivers as only advisory directions, especially at night. This makes the neighborhood generally unsafe for pedestrians and especially dangerous for my community’s many young children and elderly residents.

If elected, I would work to make my neighborhood a safer place for all residents. I would hound DDOT to conduct road studies and implement safe-street infrastructure such as speed bumps, raised crosswalks, expanded sidewalks, and speed cameras to slow down drivers on the most dangerous streets in my district. I would also work with the city government and council to push for a solution to the problem of commuters often getting off free from traffic violations due to DC's lack of ability to enforce tickets on Maryland and Virginia residents
I plan to engage with residents in a variety of ways. I will use an email list to keep neighbors updated on my plans as ANC and what actions I take working with government agencies, upcoming meetings and votes, and updates on issues facing my single-member district. I also plan to hold monthly meetings with my neighbors where residents can voice their concerns and ask me questions. While canvassing, I've already met many residents unfamiliar with the role of an ANC, and it is crucial that these neighbors understand what I can do to help them as a Commissioner.

I also promise to be an extremely active and responsive Commissioner. I will always be available to answer calls and emails about the issues my neighbors are facing and what I can do to help. As a member of Gen-Z, I am well-versed in all kinds of instant messaging, email, and social media, and I will use these skills to reach all of my neighbors and keep them updated with my work as ANC. I look forward to serving my neighbors.
