Why should voters elect you?

"I would provide a different public policy perspective, search for common ground to solve problems and represent Ward 3 interests and values first and foremost."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Protecting Ward 3 against excessive and unrestrained development; insisting on lower taxes and lean, clean and effective government services; empowering parents to choose among good schools; improving policing and emergency medical service to protect public safety; strengthening Advisory Neighborhood Commissions to protect neighborhood interests and values; reducing traffic congestion and air pollution by discouraging commuting by car; empowering voters to hold council members accountable; reducing hyper-partisanship and searching for common ground to solve problems; providing constituent services; and using information from that process for legislative oversight and new legislated solutions; representing Ward 3 first and foremost."
