If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in PoCo?
I would cap the rental units in PoCo at a 2% rent increase every two years. I would look into co-op housing and housing grants.

What do you hope to accomplish as a city councillor?
A better recycling program — one that picks up glass. If the bottle depots accept glass, the city should as well. I want more lit sports fields as we only have two turf fields.

What do you believe is the biggest issue facing PoCo?
Urban growth and speeding down our residential streets.

Would you change the mayor and council’s pay and why?
No. I think you need to attract great, bright minds and, in order to do that, you have to make it worth their time.
