Metro Council

Metro Council President

Why I'm running.

Metro Council President is not an entry level position, it requires someone who completely understands the relationships and dynamics of the region to successfully navigate the intricacies of working with three counties and 24 cities. My experience in local, county and state government has prepared me for this position. I have provided stable, problem-solving, collaborative leadership in unforeseen and challenging times—reflected in my diverse endorsements. I will continue to provide that to this region through these incredibly tough times in my second term.

My top 3 priorities.

My top three priorities for my second term are: addressing the housing and homelessness crisis, taking on the impacts of climate change, and assisting in an equitable economic recovery for all. I intend to continue using a lens for racial equity and climate change for these three priorities as I do with all decisions.

Why voters should choose me.
