I had the privilege of serving as your Council Member from 2014-2020, finishing my second term as your Mayor and leading the City through the onset of Covid.
I led the effort bringing the Soda Tax to Albany, creating funding for many programs for health and youth, and including funding school crossing guards.
I successfully brought forward and supported a number of other measures that have sustained and increased the City’s funding for important programs and services, such as emergency services, parks, sidewalk repair, and climate action programs.
Through my work in the community, on Commissions, and on Council, I have a proven record of crafting and funding positive change including environmental, safety, and housing initiatives.
I instigated the process leading to Albany’s first civilian police oversight body.
I serve on the Planning & Zoning Commission continuing work I started on the Council.
I run to continue the work of this Council in climate action, safe streets for all, economic and social justice, and housing production.
I am endorsed by Mayor Preston Jordan, Vice-Mayor Aaron Tiedemann, and School Board President Sara Hinkley.
