"He's a hard working, people oriented, inventive and talented member of the community." — Jenson Steel, Portland Resident

Affordable Housing

Everyone who wants to live and work in Portland should be able to afford it, but too many young families, workers and artists are leaving because of our sky-high rents and home prices. Other cities have tried creative solutions to the affordability problem— with bold leadership, we can too.

Property Taxes

Property taxes are a heavy burden for many people, especially seniors. Our seniors should never be forced to choose between medicines or groceries and property taxes. We should find a way to leverage our luxury housing boom to help lighten the load of property taxes.

Civic Innovation & Transparency

It should be a lot easier to find out what's happening at City Hall, and why decisions get made. With my background in digital communications, I will help the City communicate more effectively, and enable collaborate with citizens with innovative tools like Participatory Budgeting.

Climate Change

Climate Change is the biggest issue that humanity has ever faced, and we must take it seriously. We are running out of time. We have to lead and take bold action to reduce our carbon footprints, to ensure that our grandchildren have a civilization to inherit.

Transportation & Mobility

Quality, accessible public transit is the key to a successful city.
In addition, we need to support alternative, green modes of transportation like bicycles and electric vehicles, as well as build and improve our regional rail connections to Lewiston, Brunswick, Boston and even Montréal.
