working today for a better tomorrow
The actions we take today are going to define the Village of Oak Park for the next 50 years. I am running for Village Board to implement the next generation of common sense, progressive policies for safe streets, crime reduction, equity, tax fairness and affordability, and climate change.
Oak Park must examine every policy–new and existing–through an equity lens. It is only by doing this that we can move our village forward and deliver on the promise of Oak Park.
Property taxes are a major financial pressure on both homeowners and renters. But it’s time for the corporate interests, like the ones who own the largest buildings in Oak Park, to pay their fair share, too, so we can lower taxes on families while maintaining our community values. This will allow lifelong residents to stay in their homes, while new neighbors join our vibrant and welcoming community.
tax fairness & affordability
Climate change is happening, and we need to respond urgently. Oak Park has an opportunity to be a national leader on climate change, and took an important first step with our Community Sustainability, Climate Action & Resilience Plan. But plans without follow through will only let our families down. We must act now to respond to the threat posed by climate change and to preserve the future of Oak Park.
