Top 3 Priorities:

Arts & Culture
I plan to continue to promote the arts in the 1st District and throughout our city. Advocate for equitable funding for the arts, in addition to providing access to instruction and opportunities for inspiring artist.

Education
I see the lack of parent engagement in our district schools as a factor in not every child reaching their full potential. I plan to continue to support our families in neighborhoods with our community partner initiatives (Winburn Community Partners/East End Community Partners). This collaborative is design to work with neighborhood focused organizations, schools, residents and groups to improve the quality of life in a community.

General Governance
City government as can be confusing
and intimidating to citizens, who don't know their way around building. I plan to work with CivicLex to help address these challenges and work to be more transparent and engaging.
