I am excited to announce that I am running for Gaithersburg City Council. I am currently living in Pheasant Run neighborhood, right next to Seneca Creek State Park. My daughter attends Lakelands Park Middle School, and my son is a second year student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I work for an affordable housing developer, which builds and operates apartment communities throughout Mid Atlantic. I also write on local issues at https://patch.com/maryland/gaithersburg, check out my articles there, or you can click on the My Articles tab above.
I am running for City Council because I love living in Gaithersburg and will work to make it a better place (see Why am I running? section below). I am so grateful to live in this desirable and welcoming community, and would appreciate your vote for me in November. I will be responsive to my neighbors from all over the city and will provide new insights and energy to the city of Gaithersburg. Let's be great neighbors to one another, and make our city a little better.
I am running for City Council in Gaithersburg, MD because I believe that our city is at a crossroads. We are facing a number of challenges, including rising crime, speeding on residential streets, insufficient small business support, and a lack of affordable housing. However, we also have a number of opportunities, including our strong economy, our diverse population, and our commitment to being good neighbors.
I believe that my experience and skills make me the best candidate to address these challenges and opportunities. I have a proven track record of working with people from all walks of life to find common ground and solve problems. I am also a strong advocate for economic development, affordable housing, and environmental protection.
If elected, I will work to make Gaithersburg a city where everyone can thrive. I will tackle the challenges, while being responsive to neighbors' current and future needs. My main focus areas are: reducing property crime and speeding on residential streets, supporting small business and creating more affordable housing. I believe that these challenges can be addressed by taking a comprehensive approach that includes:

However, small businesses are facing a number of challenges, including rising rents, increasing competition from online retailers, and a lack of access to capital.
I believe that we can support small businesses by taking the following steps:
The lack of affordable housing is a major problem in our community. It forces people to live further away from jobs, and decreases their quality of life.
I believe that we can build more affordable housing by taking the following steps:
