District two is a community of neighborhoods, and each neighborhood has specific needs. No one need is greater than the other.

By all means, I am for growth, progress and strengthening our business environment, but not a the cost of our residents. With the right policy's in place we can grow and protect our community's history, culture, and support its social capital.
