Issues and Framework
There are a number of pressing issues facing our community, and I will focus on a public health equity approach as a framework for decision-making and community improvement. This means I will focus on prevention and interconnection in order to address our homelessness and housing crises, develop anti-racist policies and procedures at the County, promote better health outcomes, rapidly respond to climate change, and ensure our communities’ resilience in the wake of COVID-19.
We must develop integrated transportation systems that are safe, accessible, and clean. There are a number of projects we can work on: reliable public transit system, service improvements to rail, well-maintained bridges, and pedestrian & bicycle infrastructure.
