Question 1:

What do you think are some of the most pressing issues facing Lexington in 2020? What is your vision for Lexington, and how will the lives of Lexingtonians be improved as a result of your time in office?

I think there are quite a few issues we are facing currently. Most importantly, in this particular season, is economic stability and racial equality and justice. Other important issues include preparing for our future growth as it relates to infill and redevelopment, traffic control and public safety. My vision for Lexington is to build on our rich history and invest in our future so our children and grandchildren have an even better city to call home. Because I am a concernend citizen and mother and not a politician, I hope to bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to the city. We cannot make important changes for our future with the same people making the same decisions as they have in the past.

Public safety is my top priority for all Lexington residents. Everyone should feel and be safe where they live work and play. Affordable housing, smart growth, traffic, the City budget, and funding social services are also important. My previous Council experience will enable me to hit the ground running on day one. My vision is one where all citizens have an equal voice and equal representation at City Hall.
