Modern Infrastructure is Possible
Transportation & Infrastructure
My Policy Values
Navigating our city is a key part of daily life, but in East Portland it can be confusing and dangerous. Whether it be the lack of sidewalks and safe ways to cross streets, unpaved roads, or poor lighting; East Portlanders never got the improvements they were promised. Crumbling infrastructure isn’t just inconvenient, it’s costly and potentially deadly. Transportation systems are the connective tissue of society, and in East Portland those systems are on life support. We need to rebuild our infrastructure, not just repair it with bandaid solutions. Our kids deserve safe routes to school and for our streets to be prioritized for upgrades and improvements. We need to invest as aggressively on East Portland’s infrastructure as we do other critical issues. Transportation investments are good for everyday people, small businesses, and our growing East Portland community.
