Find out what the County Council Candidates Think About the 9% Property Tax Hike »

Q: Describe yourself on the political spectrum (i.e., fiscal conservative/social liberal, libertarian, social moderate/fiscal liberal).

A: I would consider myself a neo-liberal. I believe that the County works better when everyone has the equal opportunity to achieve success, and that means livable wages, affordable education, and transit-oriented development that is both realistic and accessible.

Q: What is the biggest challenge facing Montgomery County today?

A: The biggest challenge facing Montgomery County is stagnant wages and increasing property costs. It is becoming harder and harder for people to afford to live in our County.

Q: What is the one thing – project or program – that you want to achieve?

A: I would like to increase the college success rate in Montgomery County and bridge the achievement gap for all students. Every student, regardless of zip code or income bracket, deserves a right to a quality education.

Q: How will you pay for your project/program?

A: I would propose that we cut 10% of the county council’s salary (a savings of $112,500) and then reinvest those savings into College Readiness Programs.
