Throughout my listening tour, you have informed me that your vision for an economic recovery begins with caring for our existing citizens and independently owned small and micro businesses. We need to support the people who have been with us all along. When federal CARES Act funds become available, the city should make sure that everyone benefits, and that we don’t add extra hurdles to access the funds.
for city council district 1
Local government is capable of directly impacting our lives in so many ways. District 1 is diverse in interests, needs, and economic levels. As your council member, I’ll bring together stakeholders from across the district and work with you to develop a consensus building process. Once we reach consensus, I’ll make sure that our government honors your collective input.
The ability for a community to inform their government in providing solutions is even more necessary when we’re not able to meet physically. COVID has showed us that there are other ways to meet and collaborate, and these new forms offer increased access to populations that had been left out of conversations. Digital communication is not a substitute for in person citizen participation but can supplement it when used correctly.
I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and work to institute a series of reforms at City Hall to ensure that your voice is heard and your community’s priorities are addressed. We are starting this campaign with a listening tour to hear directly from District 1 residents about what is important to you.
