Priorities

As a member of the Board of Aldermen, I have the opportunity to work closely with community members on a wide range of issues. In my 2019 re-election campaign, I am seeking to build on the accomplishments of my first term and to engage all of Carrboro in our important work together.

I am proud to be endorsed by the Sierra Club, INDY Week, Equality North Carolina, NEXT Chapel Hill-Carrboro, and the LGBTQ Victory Fund.

  • For a comprehensive plan to guide decisions about growth and development consistent with our values
  • For better local and regional public transit
  • For our place at the regional table
  • For a growing, diverse community

My priorities include:

  • Land use and transportation planning that promotes a healthy and affordable community, furthers our leadership in alternative transportation, thoughtfully integrates new development with our existing neighborhoods, and responds to the challenges of global climate change.
  • Economic development that helps locally owned businesses thrive, expands and diversifies our tax base, and meets people’s everyday needs close to home.
  • Policy making that encourages broad participation, fosters partnerships with and among community groups, and builds on Carrboro’s reputation as a progressive community that values diversity and social justice.
