Improving Public Safety for all Communities into the Future

Safe Neighborhoods will always be a top priority for me as your Councilman. The Ninth District is an amazingly diverse district and benefits greatly from smart community policing. From communities in Kensington to the College Area and from City Heights to Southcrest our neighborhoods have their own character and unique qualities.  Community policing, emergency services and other first responders should reflect the communities they serve and have the proper tools, training and adequate staffing to serve those communities well. I will work toward finally addressing the city's long-standing problem of hiring and retaining police officers and fire fighters so that we can maintain safe staffing levels in our neighborhoods.
