I have 3 approaches to improve public safety: 1. External to CPD: -I’ve endorsed Citizens for a Safer Cleveland. -I support creating mental health first responders -We should integrate more forms of community policing

2. Internal to CPD: - Increase recruiting police officers who live in Cleveland - Increase minority and gender representation of CPD

3. Addressing the root causes of crime - Supporting affordable housing in Cleveland - Supporting access to mental health services to our vulnerable populations - Investment in poverty reduction programs
1. Refund the program to test for lead in children in public schools.

2. Set metrics to track the number of landlords who have undergone getting a lead-safe certification. Pay special attention to the location of certifications to ensure certification is happening in the most at risk neighborhoods.

3. Ensure the City has enough funding, staff and resources to process lead-safe certifications in a quick manner

4. Utilize federal funding for replacing all lead pipes in the city by the end of the decade
I was a member of the group asking for Participatory Budgeting in Cleveland (PB CLE). We wrote a letter asking the city to allow residents to vote on how $30.8 M of the ~$500M in federal funds could be spent. This would give residents a direct say in where that money goes.

In general, I am very for processes that improve transparency and incorporate residents' voices. I am an endorser of Clevelander's for Public Comment, and I want Cleveland to be transparent about its utility rate setting process happening now.
As part of my platform as an environmental candidate, I have put together a policy proposal called the CLEVELAND GREEN DEAL. It has 4 core values:

Affordability as a human right Ending environmental racism Investing in public spaces Fighting climate change

As part of the Cleveland Green Deal, I am specifically asking to guarantee affordable housing as a human right by reforming or replacing the tax abatement.

In Ward 3, we do not need the tax abatement and keeping it in place will only exacerbate inequalities in Cleveland.
I will communicate with constituents by

- Implementing a quarterly in person and virtual town hall similar to what Jasmine Santana does in Ward 14.

- Continue the legacy of attending block clubs

- Encourage public comment and other resident forms of input

- Creating a standard procedure for residential approval on development projects

And yes, my ward’s constituents would benefit from expanded language access for city services.
