A healthy community must balance the needs of businesses and residents. I believe that in our neighborhood, the balance has shifted to favor commercial interests.
There are pressing needs that must be addressed. Crime is rising dramatically. Parking problems grow worse by the day. Development is changing the historic character of our community. And city services are in great need of improvement.
But our local Advisory Neighborhood Commission has done little to address these problems. This will change if I am your ANC commissioner because I will be laser-focused on the needs of our immediate neighborhood.
