Traffic & Transit
IMPROVE RELIABILITY • EXPAND ROUTES
If you ride public transit, like I have tried to do, you know Orange County needs more reliable transit options – both bus and rail. There’s too much traffic and too many unfinished road construction projects. We need local officials who demand that these projects finish on time to get traffic flowing again and that they always keep pedestrian safety and small businesses in mind.
Crossing the causeways is an ordeal. Apart from the frustrating inconvenience, our County’s economy is at risk if we don’t implement solutions soon. We need County leaders who are ready to act on transit now.
ATTRACT HIGHER WAGE JOBS • GROW SMALL BUSINESSES
Our district is one of the start-up capitals of the United States, but we need to help these new local businesses scale up. That’s why we need a commissioner who will fight to keep these new businesses in our community and connect them to resources, expanding their ability to grow. This means higher-paying jobs at the new companies themselves, and a resulting benefit to the community as we attract more entrepreneurs and fresh ideas for the County.
SMART HOUSING DEVELOPMENT • HOUSING WE CAN AFFORD
Our housing costs are skyrocketing out of control. We all know someone who has made the decision to live in another part of the County or leave Miami-Dade because rent was too high. In turn, this hurts small businesses that lose potential customers.
I will work for reasonable solutions to our out-of-control rent. Affordable housing builds safe, successful, connected communities, and that’s why keeping our district affordable is a priority.
PRIORITIZE OUTREACH • FIND COMPASSIONATE SOLUTIONS
The sad fact that hundreds of our neighbors live on the street concerns me deeply. Chronic homelessness is not easy to solve, but our local experts all agree that we need more funding for daily, consistent outreach that assists people in finding a safe place to stay and a path out of poverty.
As Commissioner I am committed to representing this vulnerable population while improving the quality of life for local residents and businesses. I want to hear from all involved stakeholders to make District 5 a safer, more friendly place.
CLEAN ENERGY • KEEPING ORLANDO BEAUTIFUL
Orange County can’t lead in the 21st century if we continue to rely on 20th century technology. We should make smart investments that conserve our taxpayer dollars and our natural resources. I’ll promote adoption of renewable energy, electric vehicles, and energy efficiency for all County buildings.
United we can solve these issues!
