“I have compassion for those truly suffering.

I’ve worked with each resident on a case by case basis. However, everything my parents fought for, picketed banks to get funding for, scraped by, and sacrificed to create a legacy, is at risk of being eliminated. 


The Pandemic and weak leadership in the City Council with their litany of 
new laws protecting these “bad actors” has us (aka: landlords)  
operating with our hands cuffed. That’s what I’m working to change."
