Friends,
I want you to be among the first to know that I will be seeking the Democratic nomination for Mayor of Alexandria next year.
 

A decade ago, I had the opportunity to go to work for the residents of our City as a member of City Council. I've approached the tough decisions head-on; promoted an accessible, transparent and accountable City government, and remained laser focused on making Alexandria a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
I am inspired to do even more. Alexandria must be a community where our children have every opportunity at success, our economy diversifies and grows, and our community's livability is enriched by quality transit, parks, open space and housing. I believe Alexandria can be the progressive and dynamic community that not only talks about our vision for the future, but actually achieves it.
It is imperative that the next leader of Alexandria provide solutions for:
  • Our Children: We must continue to address growing student enrollment from preschool to high school. We must ensure every child begins Kindergarten ready to learn and has safe environments after the school day. 
  • Our Economy: We must stabilize and grow our economy by bringing Metro to Potomac Yard, building the West End Transitway, redeveloping Landmark Mall, and managing the transition of vacant commercial space. Alexandria can and will lead the region's recovery by driving economic growth and easing the burden on our taxpayers. 
  • Our Community: We must invest in our infrastructure by paving roads, improving sidewalks, advancing housing affordability, modernizing schools, addressing sewers, maintaining parks and creating broadband. These are the building blocks of Alexandria's future.
I need your support between now and the June 12th Primary to make this kind of progress:
