A FORWARD-LOOKING VISION FOR ANN ARBOR
The following are the key issues that have inspired me to run for City Council. I look forward to learning more about what matters to you.
Top-Notch City Services
The utmost priority of any city government is delivering quality city services, and, like my neighbors, I want to see my tax dollars invested in such services. Residents rightfully expect the city to provide well-maintained roads, sidewalks, and parks, reliable utility service, clean water, a trusted public safety system, and transparent, responsive governance. As your council member, I will take this responsibility seriously. I will work to improve our water and sanitation systems, prioritize safe roads and sidewalks, increase trust in our public safety and fire departments, and expand access to reliable and convenient transit systems.
Immediate CLIMATE ACTION
Each month brings new evidence of rapidly accelerating climate change and serves as a reminder that we must take action now. Ann Arbor has boldly committed to community-wide carbon neutrality by 2030 through the A2ZERO plan. I will support policies that align with this plan and prioritize equity and livability, such as:
Thoughtful, integrated multi-modal transportation systems that reduce emissions and create safe, convenient options for people that can’t drive or afford a car.
Land-use policies that enable mixed-use neighborhoods, increase walkability and reduce vehicular miles traveled, and also deliver quality-of-life benefits to residents and help local businesses.
Community solar programs that help us achieve our carbon neutrality goals and benefit renters and others who are unable to install their own residential solar panels.
