Occupation: Attorney; Former Deputy Fire Chief, Eastside Fire and Rescue; PA

Rapid growth in the Eastside has created urgent issues that need to be addressed. We need to fix our crumbling infrastructure and reduce commutes. We need sensible development that expands access while preserving our environment. We need to work smarter with limited resources.


I'm running because people shouldn't have to choose between getting stuck in traffic and spending time with their families. It's unacceptable that our current councilmember proposed cutting almost $10 million from the already-decimated roads budget, and now blames the budget gap on the state.


I devoted my career to public service, where I lived and breathed the importance of maintaining focus and delivering results.


As Deputy Fire Chief at Eastside Fire & Rescue, I worked with city planners to make the streets more accessible for emergency responders. As CEO of the National Traffic Safety Institute, I streamlined systems to ensure greater financial accountability.


As your councilmember, I'll fight for equitable funding of our roads and innovative solutions to mitigate traffic, and will reinstate the express bus. I'll champion the issues important to families, women, and seniors.


I'm asking for your vote because you deserve a councilmember who remains focused on delivering commonsense results.
