Open & Inclusive Government
As mayor, I will continue to work to ensure that the City government serves all of our residents and to provide everyone with multiple opportunities to state their needs, express their opinions, and ask questions. I will keep working, as I have done for eight years as a Councilor and as president of the City Council, with community leaders, existing social networks, and messaging apps to reach residents of immigrant communities who have not always felt respected or included. I'll work to ensure that all residents have access to the internet at home.
The structure of city government should continually evolve to serve the changing needs of the community. I support a review process leading to the first major revision of the City Charter in a generation, to remake our protocols as necessary to require our city government to be accessible.
