What are the most critical issues in your district and how will you address them?

Jessica Cohen

City Council, District 3

The most critical issues in District 3 are gentrification, soaring property taxes/rent, displacement, homelessness, and crime. All of these things are related to each other. I support developing and implementing a strong Anti-Displacement Policy agenda. I believe that the Council needs to work harder with the AISD board to circumvent the state “Robin Hood” recapture law and return those property taxes to it’s constituents. I support a larger budget for transitional housing and social workers in order to reduce homelessness. I also believe we need more officers involved in community policing.
