Athens-Clarke County government has a responsibility to ensure that our local government is one truly by, of, and for the people. An accessible local government means that residents will have numerous opportunities for public input so that policy decisions are informed by the real, expressed needs of Athenians.

    • I will work to find new ways to increase government engagement and transparency on the County level.
    • I will ensure that all Commission meetings, including Commission Work Sessions, are accessible, welcoming, and recorded so we can engage more Athenians in the democratic process.
    • I will spearhead District 5 “People’s Assemblies” once a month so that District 5 residents have a consistent forum for their voice to be heard on the issues that impact their everyday lives.
