I’m proud of what I was able to accomplish in my first term on City Council — especially cutting the ribbon on the Dog Park and witnessing the opening of the Little Indonesia Cultural Center. Here is a list of the issues and priorities that were listed on my campaign website during my campaign for City Council, and updates on each item.
