My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety: I was able to increase the police force by 5 officers, including a bicycle patrol for our parks. I have also worked with neighborhood groups to achieve countless traffic calming measures to improve traffic safety in the District.
  • Housing Affordability: I have worked to find new funding sources for affordable and workforce housing. Finding ways for developers and rental property owners to contribute to affordable housing is a major accomplishment for me.
  • Infrastructure Enhancements: We have to invest more in our parks, recreational and senior facilities, storm drains, sidewalks, sewers, and streets. I worked to put a $100 million on the ballot to improve our city's infrastructure
