On the issues

What is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

As council member, I will continue to work to ensure all residents have access to a quality education, a safe environment in which to live, health insurance, affordable housing and quality jobs. All of these are and continue to be the most critical issues facing Ward 2 and our city.

Why should voters elect you?

My record of getting things done is clear. Because of my leadership, we in the District are much better off today than ever before.
