TOP PRIORITIES

 

HOUSING: HOMELESSNESS in Portland is appalling - it is terrible for everyone. It is time to bring people into City Hall who have the ideas, passion and experience to help address this crisis. Like me.

 

HOUSING: COST OF HOUSING. The rapid increase in the cost of housing is making it hard for people to buy or rent a home, close to where they work and near schools and services. It is time to bring people into City Hall who can help address this crisis.

 

HOUSING: AFFORDABLE HOUSING. There is not enough affordable housing, and this has caused rapidly escalating rents, displacement, homelessness, school drop-outs. My ideas & experience in affordable housing will increase affordable housing.

OTHER PRIORITIES SCHOOLS. Schools are a foundation of our city, a gateway out of poverty, an important part of our quality of life. Approximately 43% of our students of color don’t graduate from high school on time. City Hall can, and should, help schools more. EQUITY. There are too many people being left behind. A lack of equity is just not right, everyone needs to be given a shot at succeeding. A lack of equity pulls our whole city down. VISION FOR PORTLAND. It’s Portland, that’s why we’re here. As we grow, we need someone on City Council who has vision, who is an expert on density and livability, who understands Portland values and can get big visionary things accomplished. ENVIRONMENT: AIR & WATER. As we grow, we need to keep Portland the Portland we desire, a city that has access to open spaces and wilderness, clean air, clean water, places for wildlife to thrive. ENVIRONMENT: TRANSPORTATION. We need to plan a transportation system that maintains and improves our quality of life, even as we get larger. We need transportation solutions that result in cleaner air. ENVIRONMENT: NEIGHBORHOODS. We are going to grow. We need an expert on City Council who understands what Portland’s quality of life means, and how we can keep our character and livability as we grow. ENVIRONMENT: SUSTAINABILITY. Growing sustainably in Portland will help us create more family wage jobs, grow our economy and most importantly, be the kind of aspirational goal that will make us an even greater city. LISTENING TO THE COMMUNITY is a critical component of any successful public project in Portland. The goal is to build trust, listen, collaborate and make great projects together with the community. JOBS, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. We need to promote more products and services that can be exported to other states and countries. I will work to help grow responsible businesses in Portland to increase jobs and build wealth for all Portlanders. WORKING FAMILIES The middle class has lost ground for decades. Many of our working families have less income as a percentage of expenses, and many have had their life savings impacted. Growing family wage jobs should be a priority.
