Why should voters elect you?

"I will bring an independent voice to the County Board — providing a renewed focus on accountability to taxpayers and responsiveness to neighborhoods."

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

"Arlington can do better. Like my neighbors, I have been frustrated with our county leaders, who have become increasingly disengaged from our neighborhoods. I want to put an end to years of mismanagement and wasteful spending. I will bring responsive leadership to the Arlington County Board. I want to renew the strength of the community, reengage citizens and work with civic leaders to ensure that adequate funding exists for sidewalks, storm drainage, traffic calming and maintenance of our streets."
