Politicians have platforms, but people have priorities.
We need REAL solutions to the challenges in our city. If elected to city council I will address the root causes of the problems Portlanders face every day.
Housing is the #1 issue that Portlanders face every day. To address the housing crisis, a multifaceted approach is essential. We need to:
Invest in affordable housing
Provide shelter alternatives
Encourage mixed-use developments
Increase rental assistance and eviction support
Addressing the addiction crisis in Portland requires a comprehensive approach focusing on prevention and treatment. We need to invest in:
Educational programs in schools
Addiction treatment services
Making Portland safer requires us to prioritize community engagement and trust-building. I will focus on:
Fully funding the Portland Street Response
Work to rebuild trust between the community and the police.
Invest in social services and community programs that help reduce crime.
Our city council is out of touch with the people. I want to establish a culture of transparency, accountability, and active citizen engagement in city hall. We can work together for a more responsive city government in Portland.
