Livable Communities are Possible
Housing & Homelessness
My Policy Values
Portland’s housing and homelessness crisis is not limited to downtown. It’s on every block in East Portland, yet City Hall focuses most of their attention in the downtown core. We are where most people go when they are priced out or swept out of other parts of the City. Instead of more empty promises, now is the time to cut to the chase and actually do the right thing. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel: there is a path forward and we know what works. Keeping people in their homes, offering a range of shelter options that meet different needs, and getting people housed quickly with the supports that will keep them stable. What we need the most is a leader who can rally Portlanders together around proven solutions. I have been that leader and I’ll do it again.
