We can put workers, families, and small businesses first by:

  • guaranteeing fair wages, benefits, and working conditions for all workers, especially underpaid and overworked employees like teachers, nurses, and law enforcement,
  • ensuring affordable high-quality childcare, community services for seniors, and health care,
  • supporting diverse pathways to employment and advancement, including robust career and technical education programs,
  • seizing once-in-a-generation opportunities to revitalize commercial centers and civic cores in Ward 3, adding housing for all income levels in the process, and
  • growing our local economy by supporting small businesses, Main Streets, and Business Improvement Districts.
