I believe together we can build a safer, stronger Spokane by increasing public safety with additional police recruiting and training; a collaborative homelessness approach with increased behavioral health and drug treatment programs; and partnering with developers to increase our housing supply, maximize underutilized buildings and provide incentives to build near transit and services.

I advocate for small businesses and a thriving Downtown. I'm passionate about walkable neighborhoods and improving pedestrian safety with speed reduction near schools, parks, and hospitals. I care deeply about environmental sustainability, and will work to clean our river, keep our aquifer healthy, and increase tree planting.
