Dear Neighbors,

Welcome to the informational website for my campaign to join the Ann Arbor City Council as a Democrat representing residents of the 4th Ward. The Democratic Primary Election is August 8th.

Residents expect city services that are efficient and effective; they want a city government that is responsive. To achieve that, they need effective representation on City Council. My work on community boards and committees highlights an ability to gather feedback from a variety of sources, then put together plans that listen to and respect that feedback. When moving from plan to action, we've always done so with an ethic of transparency and a focus on efficiency.

Many residents I've spoken with over the past few months have voiced frustration with the Trump administration's failure to address collapsing infrastructure, the economy and climate change, instead choosing to demonize immigrants and whittle away at hard-won LGBT rights. Now more than ever, we need Localism. We need to innovate the ways in which we handle housing, transportation and the environment so that our community can be more resilient and sustainable in the face of an uncertain future. Well maintained and safe roads, transportation options, housing affordability, and clean air and water are not only the signs of good local government. They are the signs of a community that is more resilient and sustainable. I'm asking for your vote on August 8th to represent you and make sure that our local government provides exceptional basic services with an eye on the needs of future generations.
