"Recent weeks and months have taught us a painful lesson. There is truth and there are lies, lies told for power and for profit. And each of us has a duty and responsibility, as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders, leaders who have pledged to honor our Constitution and protect our nation, to defend the truth and defeat the lies."
President Joe Biden, 1/20/2021
City Council Newsletter
I write an email newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council. I also include news of upcoming events that affect Ward 4 residents. Click the button below to sign up for my email list.
I send my newsletter out the weekend before every Council meeting (and in advance of my coffee hours), so that you can see what’s on the agenda and have an opportunity to reach out with concerns. Later that weekend, I post my newsletter on this website.
PS: You don't have to be a Ward 4 resident to sign up for my newsletter - everybody is welcome! :-)

A2 Fix It
This is an online system for alerting the city to problems in your neighborhood (e.g. potholes, graffiti, garbage pickup). This is the city’s preferred method for hearing your complaint so they can direct appropriate staff to address it.
I’m happy to hear from you, too, but city staff tell me that the online A2FixIt system is actually the quickest and fastest way to get a response to the problem.
Virtual Coffee Hours
I hold "virtual" coffee hours with Zoom on Sunday afternoons at 3pm before scheduled City Council meetings. Please email me for a link.
Council Caucus meets Sunday night at 6pm before Council meetings. During the COVID-19 crisis, Council Caucus has been meeting with Zoom. Please note the start time was moved to 6pm starting Dec 20, 2020.
I keep this post updated with information about Council Caucus.
