MY PRIORITIES

There are pressing issues facing Concord residents, and I am looking forward to bringing fresh energy and new leadership to the City Council. I believe that a City Councilor should be proactive in gathering information and expertise to solve problems, seeking out the input from community members who might not have the loudest voice in the room, the most money, or the most social connections. Everyone's voice matters.
