Why I am running?
I’m running because I know that we can do better! For years our ward has lacked the leadership needed to solve the issues that we face as Ward 4 residents.
Recent improvements haven’t been made by the ‘Green Team’ but by community members like you and me who’ve been tired of waiting for change. We’ve stepped up, taken control and made our community a better place. To give just a few examples:
- Our elementary schools have improved their academic results thanks to active parents and the Ward 4 Education Alliance.
- Pedestrians and cyclists benefit from lower street speed limits thanks to a group of Ward 4 neighbors who campaign as All Walks D.C.
- The citizen-run Kennedy Street Development Association is transforming one of the ward’s most important business corridors after pressuring councilmembers to fulfill their forgotten election promises of economic growth.
I’m a Ward 4 native and have been involved in all of the above programs (and more!). As your councilmember I want to listen to your concerns and take action – whether your concerns relate to schools, affordable housing, pedestrian/cyclist safety, economic development or anything else. I’ll lead the fight for better education, new street-calming measures, better transportation links, strong economic growth, the redevelopment of vacant and blighted properties and an end to pop-ups.
My campaign slogan is ‘Your Voice Matters’, and I promise to continue standing for this slogan once I’m in office. Together we’ll use my council seat to lead Ward 4 to a better future.
