I’m running for re-election.
In 2019, Medford residents elected me to my first term as city councilor. You gave me a chance to serve based on countless conversations on doorsteps, phone calls, events, and word of mouth.
In my first term, I have worked hard to deliver for Medford.
In my first year on the council I introduced and passed a resolution for an expansion of eligibility for the senior tax deferral program.
I submitted the amendment adding language for brewpubs to the new brewery zoning amendment, paving the way for breweries and brewpub restaurants to open in Medford.
I advocated for better pedestrian and bike infrastructure in Medford through multiple resolutions.
I pushed for budget inclusion and funding of translation services for city communications.
I fought for preserving historic buildings and open space in our community.
I co-sponsored the resolution classifying systemic racism as a public health crisis in Medford.
I’ve pushed the council to take action on preserving our tree canopy and elevating a diverse set of voices through the proposed Gender Equity Commission.
I fought to give the local anti-poverty community action agency the money they need to administer emergency rental assistance for those facing housing insecurity in Medford.
I pushed for monthly updates and information on Medford's fight against the coronavirus.
I voted against a budget that I felt forced our schools to bear too much of the burden for a lean year.
I made a commitment to voters to be your voice on the council, and I believe I have done that.
But my work is not done yet, which is why I’m running for re-election and asking for your vote.
