Priorities

Responsive Government

Ann Arborites deserve a government that responds to their concerns. Whether that’s filling a pothole or weighing in on a park redesign. As your Council member, I strive to listen to all perspectives, seek common ground, and engage constituents in decision making.

A Caring, Inclusive Community

Our social safety net is a hallmark of our city’s compassion and commitment to justice. To ensure that all residents can access jobs, education, and medical appointments we must support transportation options such as public transit, walking and biking infrastructure, and safe roadways. We also need to restore the balance of affordable housing in our community. In fact, council should consider the impact on social equity of all major decisions.

Healthy Neighborhoods and a Vibrant Downtown

The quality of life in our neighborhoods depends on our ability to preserve core services such as fire protection, trash and compost pickup, and street maintenance. We need to carefully balance growth in our downtown with efforts to protect the character of our neighborhoods, allowing us to maintain both our city’s cultural and architectural heritage.
