Issue Position: Urban Agriculture

Jan. 1, 2018

Milwaukee is a national leader in growing food locally and I want to ensure we continue this direction. In the 18th Assembly district, a wide diversity of urban agriculture has taken root. Growing food has positively impacted inter-generational and inter-ethnic relationships, while promoting healthy eating and healthy lifestyles. The importance of the urban agriculture movement in Milwaukee cannot be overstated. As our state and the entire country faces an obesity epidemic, growing food is a trend that should be celebrated and expanded. Unfortunately, access to healthy food is often most difficult for those of lesser means, so urban ag programs can improve the health and lives of all our city's residents, ensuring access to high-quality food for all. I have served on the Agriculture Committee in the Legislature, to not only promote growing food in Milwaukee, but also to help bridge the divide between urban and rural Wisconsin, and I look forward to continuing this mission.

Issue Position: Infrastructure

Jan. 1, 2018

There are too many potholes and too much outdated infrastructure throughout the 18th Assembly District. Beyond advocating for updating and improving our infrastructure, it is a priority to increase our smart, connected, multi-modal infrastructure. It is a fact that fewer people are driving today, in favor of alternate transportation options such as walking, biking, and public transportation. As a city, we need to adapt to this shift in preference and invest in the infrastructure that people are demanding. Rather than billion dollar highway projects, we need to invest in city streets and public transit. In the Assembly, I have worked to improve bike and pedestrian access and safety, and have advocated for the balanced use of state dollars to do so.

Issue Position: Foreclosure

Jan. 1, 2018

No issue is immediately more visible in our community than the number of empty, boarded-up houses. Abandoned properties are magnets for crime, public health hazards, and pull down the property values of the surrounding neighbors. The longer buildings are left unoccupied, the more uninhabitable and unsafe they become, a problem many neighborhoods around the city are facing today. State law should be changed to address this issue and empower local communities to better manage foreclosed and abandoned properties. Not only do these buildings need to be responsibly torn down, but a plan needs to be established for rebuilding neighborhoods, so those lots can go toward productive use and our Milwaukee communities can thrive.
