My values intersect with what I love about Omaha, and what I hope for our city.
Public Health + Safety
Public health and public safety exist to support and maintain stable communities, and District 6 needs an accessible, consistent and reliable leader. I am the right choice for District 6 as a proven leader who knows how to collaborate with the County and State to prioritize caring for each other, as we continue to navigate the pandemic.
Stability in housing, including attainable housing that allows our firefighters, teachers, police and health professionals to live in the communities they serve is important. We also need to prioritize options for our aging population to stay in their current homes, or transition into safe and accessible living.
Meaningful and helpful transition opportunities (jobs, transportation, housing) for our neighbors who are leaving systems and circumstances such as aging out of foster care or re-entering after incarceration or homelessness is also important for the social fabric of our Omaha communities.
Safe neighborhoods matter a lot to me. I envision “a good place to raise a family” for everyone in Omaha. When some neighborhoods are safe and some neighborhoods are not, that means we have an unstable city. Plain and simple.
Equity is the state of being just and fair. From an economic lens, we are missing opportunities when we don’t seek equitable policies in our city. We have an opportunity to step up our game on all matters such as economic advantages, job infrastructure for our youth, disability and racial justice – for all Omahans.
Smart Development means community, first and foremost. The development and real estate decisions we make today impact our future Omaha community members, and we must ensure our choices truly positively impact our children and their children.
Omaha trends well for fiscal responsibility, however regarding sustainability, and generational retention, we have work to do. Our children and our children’s children are not staying in Nebraska, and we can do something about that at the City Council level.
Additionally, we must prioritize conservation and development policies that protect our health and natural environment, so we can bolster our communities through economic strength, social diversity and shared prosperity.
What’s Your Priority?
We want to hear from you as we deepen and further develop the campaign priorities in the months to come. We want to learn more about the issues that matter to residents of District 6, and the Greater Omaha residents.
