My Priorities

As your Councilmember, I will address the following priorities:

Neighborhood Safety

I support reform and reimagination of law enforcement practices with a renewed focus on mental health, job training and youth prevention services. We must focus on responsible, neighborhood-based safety that reduces gang violence, and property crimes while improving 911 response times for any family needing help.


Homelessness is a moral and health crisis in West County and our city. I will expand partnerships with nonprofit providers and the County to expand counseling, substance abuse treatment, transitional housing, and job training for people in need, while ensuring our business districts, parks and public areas are safe and secure for everyone.

Job Creation

COVID is not only a health crisis, but a fiscal crisis. We must retain local businesses, fill our vacant storefronts, and continue efforts to train our local workforce and bring more jobs to Richmond.

Blight Removal and Pothole Repair

Dirty streets, abandoned buildings, and illegal dumping are issues in many parts of our city. Every resident deserves to live in a safe, healthy, and clean neighborhood. I will fight for our District’s fair share of money to address dumping, remove graffiti, and repair potholes and streets.
