#FlashbackFriday: I had so much fun at our Outdoor Resource Fair in August! Loved working with Senator Stephanie Chang and Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib to deepen connections with our residents and provide great resources! Shoutout to United Way for Southeastern Michigan for book bag and school supplies donation, to Detroit Pistons Foundation for the basketballs, to Clinton Foundation for the books, to Ice Dreamsss for the ice cream, and to all the other vendors!
#6forD6 Policy Priorities
Over the last 8-months, my team and I have had a front row seat to the issues facing our residents. While I knew these prior to becoming your Council Member, through my own personal and professional experience, my time thus far has affirmed the need to focus on these issues. We've begun to tackle some of these issues already! I'm co-chairing the Equitable Development Taskforce with Council Member Johnson, have passed a resolution urging the administration to spend more ARPA funding on housing, and I'm consistently meeting with department leaders to discuss transit, infrastructure, environmental protections, and more! I look forward to working with our community and government partners to make some progress! Stay tuned for more details.
