CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE

DIRECTION . DEVELOP . DELIVER

During my New Term
.

What specific policies or proposals would you pursue if elected?

During the upcoming term, the city will continue working to meet the expectations we set forth with the adoption of the Envision Columbus plan. The Council must meet the opportunities and challenges with the continued growth of downtown housing like “The Taylor”, the Riverfront project, and NeXus Park.

What are the biggest issues in Columbus and how would you address them when elected?

The rise in homelessness is something that tops many constituents’ concerns. It is not only about affordable housing, but also about people facing mental illness and addiction. ASAP provides a collaborative City model to provide better coordination, improved programs and strong support for some of our most vulnerable community members.

There is a shortage of affordable housing units in the city, and many households are struggling with housing costs.If elected, what would be your approach to expanding the city’s supply of affordable housing?

The city must continue to do all it can to support developers who want to increase our inventory of housing. The increased interest in residential projects is exciting. Developers of the workforce housing project, Gladstone Apartments, is now working with the City on a larger project on State St.
