For Metro District 6

Let's talk trash!

Why I'm Running

Burning or burying our garbage is what people have done for thousands of years. As Metro is responsible for regional solid waste management, I’m running to implement 21st century solutions to our current garbage crisis and to be a bold, progressive, voice on Metro Council.
