I want to work to serve all the citizens in District D. It is a very diverse area with many challenges that encompass all walks of life, from the very affluent to the very poor. In addition to longer-term residents, we are home to tens of thousands of college students, many of whom enjoy living in Raleigh so much they seek employment in our city after they graduate. I will continue to champion the needs of all residents of Southwest Raleigh, especially those who most need a voice at the council table.

I am always open to new technologies and methods of delivering services that show promise for enhancing our city, but I will fully explore any potential negative impacts to our citizens before I lend support to major changes.

Help make a difference in District D.
