My Top 3 Priorities

  • Create a citywide and city funded universal pre-school program for 4-year-olds. To truly address the achievement gap for African-American and Latino students, we must invest in early childhood education.
  • Create a citywide program to address the housing crisis for working families -- those making between 55%-120% of Area Median Income (AMI).
  • Revitalize the commercial corridors on Mission Street, Geneva Avenue and Broad Randolph. To accomplish this, we need a concerted investment of both public and private funds.
