I am proud to have lived in District 8 for over 20 years, and now my wife Carrie and I are raising our 7-year-old son Simon and 4-year-old daughter Cora in the Elmwood District.
As your Councilmember, I have spent my time listening to and working with neighbors to make sure the city provides needed services to all. I have dedicated myself to public service and giving back to our community.
I’ve supported funding over ten million dollars for affordable housing and helped people stay in their homes. I have delivered over $300,000 in crosswalk funding for our neighborhood, opened up Emerson for weekend play, and helped facilitate the opening of new businesses. I’ve also co-authored the $15 minimum wage, continued to fight to keep Alta Bates open, and balanced several city budgets.
I’m running for re-election to continue to advocate for you.
As your Councilmember, I will continue to:
• Fight to make Berkeley affordable for all
• Address Berkeley’s homeless crisis
• Prioritize safety in our community
• Support small businesses in our neighborhood
Together we can make Berkeley a place where everyone can live, work, and thrive. I hope to earn your vote.
