EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION
This community has provided amazing opportunities to me and so many others who grew up here. I want to work with the University of Akron, Stark State, Akron Public Schools, and the private sector to create even more pathways to success, so that every young person growing up in this community sees a place for themselves in Akron’s future.
BUILDING UP THE MERRIMAN VALLEY
Just down the street from our national park, the Merriman Valley Business District has never really taken off, despite having so many great businesses and a lot of potential. I want to help business owners connect through the City’s new Great Streets program to build an inviting, safe, and thriving Merriman Valley for everyone.
STRENGTHENInG THE AKRON POLICE DEPartment
For the last two years, I’ve worked with the Akron Police Department and seen up close how committed our officers are to this city. We must look for new opportunities to invest in training and resources for our officers, so that they’re able to keep us safe, stay safe themselves, and build up trust with the community.
