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

"Public safety, neighborhood preservation, controlling the rental industry and holding the state of Maryland responsible for failing to fund the rebuilding of Route 1 are all critical issues facing College Park. Focusing on public safety, state officials from every district need to realize that College Park is a unique environment, and the level of public safety is a concern of every parent who sends their child here. If residents vote yes on the increased policing referendum, I am committed to proposing that the state of Maryland match every city dollar. Please ask yourself, can we afford not to vote yes?"

Why should voters elect you?

"Experience, commitment and cooperation describe the current council/staff team that has College Park heading in the right direction and deserving your vote on Nov. 8."
