City Council, District 3

As a real estate broker, I have seen first-hand land prices skyrocketing year over year. As a city, we need to be acquiring land in order to prepare for the future. We need to be careful with any partnerships we create on city-own land to be sure that we are getting the best use of it since it’s such a scarce commodity.
