I’m running to be your Monroe County Legislator for the 21st District because our community faces challenges related to poverty, good jobs, education, transportation and structural racism. The Republican-led county government is in fiscal crisis and unable to serve families in need. We deserve ethical and accountable government dedicated to solving problems.
For the past 20 years as a journalist, I’ve given a voice to the voiceless and held the powerful accountable. I’m a graduate of John Marshall High School and Cornell University. By the end of the year, I’ll have earned an Executive Master Degree in Public Administration from Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
I will prioritize the following issues:
- Expand access to early childhood intervention and child care services.
- Provide more oversight of county finances and enact a digital open records system.
- End tax breaks for luxury housing developments.
- Stop chargebacks for Monroe Community College that unfairly burden city residents.
- Explore using the county’s fiber network to bridge the digital divide and support businesses.
- Examine how to better support arts organizations.
We must elect Democrats committed to working as a team to fix what’s broken and rebuild trust.
I promise to run a positive, substantive campaign focused on issues important to the 21st Legislative District.
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the direction of Monroe County. I hope to visit you in the coming weeks, but please don’t hesitate to reach out by phone, text or email. I will work hard to earn your support.
