I'm running for re-election!
Will you join me?
I have been honored to serve the people of Chapel Hill on the Town Council, but I am not done yet! I need your support to continue the “good trouble” we have been getting into together for the last four years. You have been among my most dedicated supporters, and I asking again for your commitment - of time and funds - to give me the opportunity to keep fighting for the vibrant, equitable community we envision.
A Resilient Community
Over the last 18 months, we have faced one of the most difficult challenges in our history – COVID-19. The pandemic demonstrated the community’s capacity for resilience and caring, working together quickly and creatively to meet growing needs. I am so proud that our residents came together to respond effectively to COVID-19, resulting in low infection rates and a high proportion of folks vaccinated. Because of this response, we are now able to begin re-opening. We must continue this momentum to enable Chapel Hill to build back better than ever.
Along with guiding the COVID response, during my term on Council I have been a vocal advocate for increasing affordable and “missing middle” housing options, leading the Town’s efforts to re-imagine community safety, promoting local small businesses, and supporting comprehensive approaches to land use that center equity, connectivity, and climate mitigation and GHG emission reduction strategies. A member of the LGBTQ+ community, I have increased the visibility of issues impacting LGBTQ+ residents, including leading the passage of a Non-Discrimination Ordinance.
Moving forward, I will use this platform to share more about my vision for the next four years, information on campaign events and ways to get involved, and - as we get closer to election day - how, when, and where to cast your vote. Thank you for your support!
