“I see congestion on our streets and it is unacceptable. I see a lack of connectivity between our neighborhoods by way of sidewalks and trails. There is a need for workforce housing for seniors, county employees and single-income families. As a teacher, I have witnessed a growing mental health crisis in our schools. I am committed to standing side-by-side with my neighbors, working on these important issues in Broad Run.”
