Arlington is on the verge of becoming a regional economic powerhouse.
When Arlington aims higher, we will merge our current economic development
in the entertainment district with expansion into hi-tech and renewable energy sectors. Creating higher paying jobs in Arlington will benefit current residents
and encourage our university graduates to make their homes in our city.
Stop the Rising Water Bills
All across our city, water bills are rapidly rising. We must identify the contributing factors and work to address the root cause. Arlington must shoulder the responsibility of curbing utility hikes, particularly for those living on fixed incomes.
At one time, Arlington’s model of community policing was the envy of the region.
It’s time we returned to this model of engagement as a means of increasing the security of our officers on the beat and reducing instances of citizen confrontation. Expanding our network of crime watch groups strengthens communities and the safety of our families.
The moral integrity of our local government matters to us all.
Health & Safety
Arlington needs an independent, health and safety task force that monitors gas well equipment maintenance and the quality of our air and water. We should check in with each neighborhood to ensure that community concerns are equalized with decisions advancing our economic drivers. As mayor, I will fight to restore local control to Arlington residents.
Transportation connecting Arlington, our universities, and the entertainment district with neighborhoods and adjacent cities will serve as a major cornerstone of sustained economic growth. Residents should be able to travel within the city and every neighborhood should have access to jobs, higher education, and health care providers.
Equal Pay Audit of the City
Across America, women are generally paid less money for the same job. As your mayor, I will work with the council to conduct an equal pay audit of our city employees to ensure that Arlington achieves pay equity.
