The Issues Affecting Everyone

It has been more than a year since I took office as the District B Council Member. Over this time I have received probably a few thousand emails on various issues. I thought I would share my running list of issues to illustrate that peoples’ concerns are wide ranging and diverse – obviously no surprise given that our City is approaching half a million people.

So, here is my list (in no particular order). My apologies if I missed any particular topic. I treat them all as important. This list is not meant to be all inclusive but to illustrate the diversity of issues.
