Why I'm Running

After participating in two referendums and a failed concensus process for the Heart of the City, I grew tired of a City Hall that ignored residents and lined the pockets of developers with money while impacting our quality of life. The best way for me to change City Hall is to become part of City Hall.

What I'm For

- Slow Growth
- Heart Park for the Heart of the City area
- Improving resident quality of life
- Making City Hall responsive to residents not developers

History of Community Service

- 6 years on Surfrider chapter executive committee
