Does City Hall Represent Your Best Interests?
No. City Hall is not representing our communities for a long time now it needs a major change by replacing seats with people who appropriately represents our communities. There is a continuing disparity in class which poses problematic with high rent and houselessness crisis which needs addressing and City Hall is not addressing them.
City Hall wants 93 more officers which threatens our public safety, especially after April 7, 2018 when Police killed John Elifritz who was experiencing mental health crisis. This is a public safety crisis where City Hall hasn’t made any bold move on police reform. We need another mean of transportation in addressing congestion problem as our population is growing everyday. City Hall wants to spend a half billion dollars on freeway expansion project which will not solve however, increase congestion and chaos. Accessibility has proven problematic in Portland where City Hall is not addressing which compromises our public safety.
WITH NEW LEADERSHIP, WE CAN CHANGE CITY HALL
I am a lived experience with a disability. I am a lived experience as a gay person. I fought and won the passing on Captions. My experience with tracking record on police training, interactions with the police and civilian police training where my vision on police reform directs a needed path in solving police issues. City Hall needs to end anti-houseless laws.
Money shall be spent on social services, expand resources and affordable/accessible housing, not police
Invest in expanding another means of public transportation, not freeway expansion project for a better mean of accessibility
Campaign shall be funded by the city in order to support Democracy for a fair, transparent and accessible race because currently it is not
Implement rent control to reduce the huge disparity between the poor and rich and stop generification
Start taxing the church and the rich and use that tax money to invest for shelters, housing, and social services
There is no true representation in City Hall for people with disabilities. There is no true representation in City Hall for LGBTIQ. I am both. I believe I am the right candidate for Position 2 and will bring a long needed City Hall a healthy balance.
