What I Want to Work On
The future of Fort Wayne, however, is not without its challenges. Over the years, I have seen first-hand opportunities that benefit from the city’s downtown economic revival, while the downtown continues to grow, as a City Council At Large Councilwoman, I want to ensure the growth happens throughout the entire city. It is the concerns of those residents uncertain about their neighborhoods, schools, and businesses that often feel as though they are on the “sidelines of success” that have captured my attention and fueled my candidacy for City Council. The greatness of our city should not be limited to the excitement and growth of downtown, but should spread like wild fire across all of Fort Wayne – for THIS is our destiny.
As a campaign platform, I have chosen to focus on three fundamental themes:
Expanding economic and redevelopment development opportunities in traditionally under-served communities.
Spur economic growth and opportunities for corporations and small business committed to hiring Fort Wayne residents, thus expanding the City’s tax base.
Promoting policies that encourage healthy and safe neighborhoods, especially for young families and single men and women.
