Civic Engagement:

  • As an activist, I have advocated for changes to make elections more accessible to more people and more representative of the diversity of political views in our community. I worked hard for the successful 2018 ballot initiative by Voters Not Politicians that struck a blow against gerrymandering in MI. That effort plus a second initiative (sponsored by the League of Women Voters) that established “no reason needed” absentee voting for all registered voters, were major victories for free and fair elections. I know that it takes time and commitment to take an informed position about local issues. As your representative, I want to make it easier for you to do that.

    • I will maintain a regular newsletter to communicate with you about the key decisions before council and the pros and cons of the most consequential proposals. 

    • I will have office hours, virtual and in-person, to listen to your concerns. 

    • I strongly support the "Nights and Weekends" initiative to expand access to the City Clerk's office in order to increase the hours and locations where people can register to vote, obtain an absentee ballot

    • I support exploring further creative electoral reforms to stimulate wider political participation and ensure no one's vote is suppressed

    • I hope everyone will take advantage of the option to vote absentee. Click here to put yourself on the list to receive an absentee ballot application before every election
