  1. What efforts would you make to improve Tucson City streets? Would you work to create temporary housing for the Tucson homeless on the streets?

    1. Yes. I will work to create housing programs for our homeless neighbors.

      Yes, I will focus efforts on improving city streets. “Complete streets are green streets” — this is one of the mottos for the Watershed Management Group. Local water/sustainability guru Brad Lancaster, and numerous groups in Tucson such as Living Streets Alliance have also been working to improve Tucson streets.

      I will work with and support successful models, for example: increasing pedestrian and bicycle friendly paths, improving transit, maximizing environmentally sustainable streets and roads, protecting wildlife, increasing opportunities for public art, and strengthening city street projects by increasing accessibility to programs such as the City’s current Stormwater Harvesting program, reducing energy cost and increasing savings.

      Improved city streets are better for Tucsonans, our economy, and our environment.
