Your issues and priorities are important to me. Please reach out to me anytime, I’d love to hear what your priorities are.
My general priorities on the Reno City Council are:

Please reach out to me there, or directly – I’m always eager to talk.
I’m always happy to discuss any of my city council votes when folks reach out. There have been enough questions on this one that I figured a longer post was the best route to communicate and let people know what the issues were. Here’s the bottom line: housing...
