Not running for re-election in the spring

December 2, 2020 2:04 PM

After 7 terms of serving as District 6 alder, I am not going to run for re-election in the spring. I am honored to have represented a very engaged and progressive district. I liked problem solving the concerns of residents and addressing issues like police accountability and public safety, affordable housing, homeless services, bike and pedestrian safety, and environmental and racial justice.

 

I enjoyed serving on a range of city committees: Urban Design, Landmarks, Plan, Finance, Common Council Executive Committee, Community Development Block Grant, Madison Arts Commission, Madison Water Utility, Housing Strategies, City-County Homeless Issues, and the Public Market Development Committee. I was elected to serve as Council President and Vice President.

 

I'm proud of my accomplishments: creation of a resident based task force to review police procedures and policies which has led to the formation of the Civilian Oversight Board; working with the City and County to create and fund the Beacon homeless day resource center; working with my Council colleagues to fund peer support and other violence disruption strategies;  finding a developer to rehab the historic Garver Feed Mill and sheparding that process over many years;  working to revitalize E Washington Ave and the Cap East District  which now includes a new park, new housing, a grocery store and employment; and helping plan a new neighborhood at Union Corners that includes affordable housing and the new home for Red Caboose daycare. District 6 has three of the five existing local historic districts and I worked preserve our historic assets and to update our landmarks ordinance. I opposed the siting of F-35s at Truax and prepared a statement on behalf of several Council members during the draft phase of the EIS and facilitated meetings where over a 1000 affected residents could get information and send in comments for the final draft.

 

We need to continue to improve efforts to include more marginalized voices in our local democracy and repair the damage of racial disparity. The pandemic puts in stark relief all the underlying contradictions of our capitalist economy and we will need to push city, state and federal leaders to better serve the people.

 

If anyone is interested in running would like to discuss what is involved and issues before the Council, I will be happy to talk. The City Clerks office is the place to start for basic campaign requirements and timelines https://www.cityofmadison.com/clerk/elections-voting/candidates-campaigns

 

I feel fortunate to have met and collaborated with so many wonderful people who share an interest in making Madison a better place for all. Thank you.
