Let's Make Lakewood Better, Together

Lakewood at its best is a place that welcomes and connects new and old residents, alike, to something bigger. I’m running for city council at-large to deliver on that promise of welcome, with practical hands-on experience.

I have organized diverse communities, as a local field director for Senator Bernie Sanders, and as co-founder of the Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus here in Lakewood. I’m ready to embrace the challenge of representing all of our city’s people.

As a council member I will push back against privatization, and defend first-rate public services and good local jobs. I will work to ensure that Lakewood promotes a diverse economy, and maintains a diverse housing stock with places for all age groups and income levels. I will champion our community spaces and parks.

Above all, I will invite and encourage broader participation by our community in decision-making. Through open government, and substituting real participation for one-way listening, we can make sure every voice is considered. Together we can bring out the best in Lakewood: a welcoming, safe city of shared opportunity.

I invite you to read more about our community issues and what I have to offer, and hope that I can earn your vote.
