Why should the voters elect you?

"I have served residents of the Braddock District since 1988. In the wake of a severe recession, I've chaired the Budget Committee, working with my colleagues to bring added discipline to the budget process while balancing the competing needs of a growing community. Through regular newsletters, town meetings and a Citizens Comprehensive Planning Task Force, I've engaged my constituents in the governing process and initiated programs to foster a strong sense of community: summer concerts in the parks, the Braddock Tree Planting project and Faith Communities in Action."

What would you like voters to know about you?

"I look forward to working with my constituents to improve our transportation network, ensure excellent schools, protect our environment and provide compassionate services to those most in need."
