What do you hope to accomplish as a city councilor?

Many things, but they primarily fall under two categories; building community health and building community wealth.  If we can make decisions that do both of those things, or one without compromising the other, we can make a big impact on the lives of each resident for the better.

What would you like to see the city focus on or make a priority in the next two years?

While this is only a one year term, I am very excited about supporting the work on the municipal fiber optic network, I also want to work with planning staff on drafting new zoning codes this year through my work with the plan commission. I have dozens of policy, ordinance, and program ideas which can be implemented in partnership with staff and the council as we have capacity to move forward. I anticipate running again next year to continue focusing on these goals and the betterment of our city.

What are the biggest issues facing the city?

Health issues and declining city wealth are the root challenges; affordable housing, economic development, environmental concerns, fair wages, lack of neighborhood cohesion, school budget shortfalls, equity issues, and everything a city does eventually relates to one or both of those issues.
