COMMUNITY VOICE AND TRANSPARENCY
We live in a city where the interests of residents are ignored when it comes to decisions made about the public good. The city operates behind closed doors, making it hard to understand how and why decisions are being made. In office, I'll be making decisions based on the needs of the residents in my community, not outside interests. Maintaining a healthy democracy isn’t just about what decisions we make, but how we make them. Centering marginalized voices and working to build a more inclusive structure, especially focused on creating opportunities for future leaders, is a priority for me. I will continue programs like participatory budgeting and build additional opportunities for community voice around the issues that impact us.
