What is the position you are running for? *

Atlanta City Council Post 1 At-Large

Why are you running for office? *

To move our City onto the right track and moving toward a future that can work for everyone. Creating a City where everyone can live, work, play, and love.
In what ways do you believe your experience will assist you in your position, if elected? *
Right now our City is experiencing a Housing Crisis, Transportation Crisis, and Commerce Crisis. —Both my personal and professional experience working across the real estate industry, creating maps as a digital cartographer, and working in business development will provide me with the assistance needed to excel at my job if elected.

Why are you the best candidate for this position? *

I walk the walk and talk the talk. —Affordable Housing, I’ve worked in it and I live in it now. Alternative Transportation, I use it everyday and have planned for it. Better Business, I’ve done.

What do you think your constituents need the most? *

Solutions

What would you do differently than the predecessor in the position/office you’re running for? *

I will provide real solutions to move us onto the right track and towards a better future that can work for us all.

What are the three (legislative) issues you will address, if elected? *

Affordable Housing, Alternative Transportation, and Better Business.

If elected, what is your plan of action the first 100 days in office? *

I will work with Council to present a New Atlanta Transport Plan, New Atlanta Housing Plan, and New Atlanta Commerce Plan. —Each plan would directly lay out the steps we will take over the 4 years in office to fix our Housing, Transportation, and Commerce systems.
