Council At Large
My at-large office is a bustling place. In addition to serving constituents and representing the people of Denver by voting on ordinances in City Council Committees and Meetings, I believe good leaders need to anticipate opportunities, identify challenges and proactively work to address them. I do so by focusing on areas that make use of my qualifications and/or are of high priority to the citizens of Denver, and by partnering closely with communities, issue experts and other stakeholders. My current initiatives fall into several themes:
- Quality affordable housing and mixed-income communities
- Environmental Justice and Sustainability, including access to Local Food
- Economic Development with a focus on Manufacturing
Past accomplishments include expanding public comment in City Council policy debates and expanding access to affordable child care. Read a summary of my 2013 accomplishments and 2014 goals.
