PRIORITIES

Priorities for District 3

To be available and ENGAGED IN our District to address your concerns.

Preserve neighborhood diversity, respecting long-term residents.

Amend the new MHA legislation, passed unanimously by the City Council, which disproportionately impacts property owners who are POC or low-income, to protect small property owners from excessive property taxes resulting from upzoning, and preserve their ownership.

Ensure developers work in partnership with neighborhoods, preserving the character of the community.

Facilitate protection of legacy residential tenants and businesses, resulting in a successful project for all concerned.

Create more affordable housing, especially for families with children.

Assess impact fees so developers pay for infrastructure, thereby reducing taxes for Seattle residents and businesses.

Provide on-demand drug rehabilitation, mental health and support services for those living on our streets, getting the homeless into permanent housing as soon as possible.

Create a home/condo buying program for teachers, first responders, nurses, tradespeople and families and individuals who have traditionally been denied the opportunity to own a home.

Use my extensive knowledge of businesses in Seattle to create living-wage jobs.

Facilitate the creation of a community-owned and operated grocery store in the Central Area.

Support the success of small businesses.

Always put the interests of Seattle residents before the interests of out-of-state/country corporations.
