Fast-track Affordable Housing


We need to build more affordable housing, and we need to build it now. Our population is growing and continues to grow while housing construction, let alone affordable housing construction, has failed to keep pace.

Support neighborhood businesses and the local economy


Set us up for economic recovery, preserve local good-paying jobs and get people back to work. Learn more about how are campaign is respoding to the COVID-19 crisis.




Reduce gridlock and make transportation safer


Save lives and make our transportation system safer for pedestrians, bikers and transit users. Reduce traffic congestion and reduce carbon emissions. Work with TriMet to ensure our public transit system recovers from COVID more accessible, affordable and reliable than before.




Support public schools and invest in students


Ensure schools have adequate funding to set kids up for success and resources to swiftly transition to online learning during COVID without leaving anyone behind. Work with teachers and administrators to connect students and their families to COVID resources.




Restore cuts to parks programs and community centers


Thriving communities rely on public gathering spaces, and healthy people rely on access to green spaces. We must prioritize access to these amenities in every Portland neighborhood and ensure a safe reopening of our public spaces when the time comes.




Climate Change & Sustainability


I have long been a leader in creating a more sustainable and climate positive Portland. We created Portland’s first Climate Action Plan in 2009 and must continue to monitor and work towards those goals. This work should be done through a lens of environmental justice.




Equity, Diversity & Inclusion


Supporting, investing in and empowering communities of color throughout the city, from all walks of life. Portland’s population is diversifying, and as it does, we should only grow stronger. This is a critical opportunity to reshape the way we see ourselves and how the world sees Portland.




Arts and Culture


Our arts and culture community in Portland is an essential part of our social and economic fabric. Right now artists and small businesses owners are facing tough times. It’s more important now than ever that we find ways to support them.
