Our region—planned and nurtured as a model of innovation, sustainability and quality of life—is at a turning point. It’s not enough to create a beautiful place if only the fortunate and privileged are able to enjoy it. For many among us it’s just not working.
In recent years, it has become harder to get a job that pays decent wages, find an affordable place to live, and get where we need to go in a reasonable amount of time at a reasonable cost.
We need a future for all of us, but that is going to require us to think bigger and do better. That’s why I am running to be Metro President.
To guide our region’s future. To find the balance between urban living and our surrounding farms and forests. To build an innovative green economy. To provide access and opportunity to all of our residents.
A FUTURE FOR EVERYONE means:
- Making sure this region remains both livable AND affordable
- Improving the health of our economy, environment and families
- Improving all our transportation options
We need to pursue these goals with a focus on equity and transparency.
Through bold vision AND focused implementation we can build a future — for all of us.
