This November I will be a candidate for reelection as your Ward 2 Councillor. I am currently serving on the Finance, Public Works/ Public Safety and the Economic and Community Development (ECD) Committees. I was elected Chairperson of the ECD by my fellow councillors.
Over the last 3 years, I have worked very hard to represent the residents of Ward 2. My top priority has always been taking care of the issues that you the residents of the Ward have called me about.
Working with the Building Department and with the help of several of the neighbors we were able to close down the Bentley frat house on Milner Street that had been a problem for a decade. Recently working with the City Treasurer we were able to get the owners of a house on Princeton St that has been a blight on that neighborhood to sell the property. This spring this it will be torn down and replaced with a new home.
For the first time, there is now a real sidewalk on Lexington St by Windsor Village. This will keep the dirt from filling the storm drains and help alleviate the flooding at Lexington and Lake St. Also, with the new sidewalk on Lincoln St from Gregory Street to Pizzi Farm, makes it possible for the residents of the Gregory/Winter Street neighborhood to walk to the MacArthur School.
I am easily accessible and have worked hard to assist every resident who has contacted me. To keep you informed, I have continued writing in the News Tribune about the issues that affect us all. Over the last years, I have worked hard to represent you and will continue to do so if I have the privilege of serving a third term.
