I stand fully against the current push to privatize our public services. Citizens shouldn’t have to pay more in fees for lower quality services from companies driving down wages.
I value living wages that allow workers to raise their family and support local businesses; I believe in accountability to the public and the ability to respond to changing community needs; and I support affordable access to public amenities without extra costs that create barriers for those least able to pay.
The things that make our city worth living in are worth investing in.
- Making sure public dollars are maximizing public benefit by expanding social procurement and focusing on local jobs
- Reducing reliance on expensive consultants for work that can be done in house
- Building a culture of proud public service and continual improvement by creating opportunities for confidential feedback
