The Issues

There are a number of  Issues that will frame the next 4 years for Ward 1 residents and business owners.  As the campaign progresses I will continue to speak out on the topics that are of most concern to the residents.  It is important that we work together to ensure that Ward 1 continues to be a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive place to live.  We can begin to do that by:
