Lack of technology or other IT infrastructure. No Enterprise GIS. Paper workflow. Building/construction application process completely paper-based. Feels like we're stuck in the early 90s sometimes.

Seniors deserve our respect, deserve protection, and a safety net. We have a senior center, but I would love to see that enhanced. I'll do everything in my power to make that happen.
Our police chief has already spoken on this, and has publicly said that our officers are not immigration officials.
I am running on a “platform” of increased engagement. Yes, we have plenty of issues, big and small. For example: water use and the aquifer, downtown revitalization, the public transportation network, etc. But I don’t want any single one of these being the focus of my campaign. Instead, I believe a more engaged group of residents can help turn every issue into an opportunity.

We have so many smart people in Pullman. Truly, the intellectual capital is huge. There’s no problem we can’t solve if we figure out a better way to get more folks involved in the ways that work for each of them. Some have great ideas but don’t really know who to talk to about things. Others are the kinds of folks who roll up their sleeves.

I want to be a city councilor who can combine the two. I would love to bridge the gap by being accessible to those with ideas as well as know the people who are willing to willing to be actively involved.

I believe in our people.

I don't work for the mayor, I work for the residents of our city, and in that regard, he's just one of 30,000+. At the same time, I like our mayor. We're not always going to agree on everything, but I think we can respectfully come to solutions.
