I want to work to serve all the citizens in District D. It is a very diverse area with many opportunities that encompass people from all walks of life, from the very affluent to the very poor. In addition to longer-term residents, we are home to tens of thousands of college students, many of whom enjoy living in Raleigh so much they seek employment in our city after they graduate. I will continue to champion the needs of all residents of Southwest Raleigh, especially those who most need a voice at the council table.


Places We Live

According to Numbeo, the crowd-sourced global database, Raleigh has the highest quality of life in North America.

We rank 2nd in buying power, 5th in safety, and 6th in the pollution index (a good thing!).


How We Play

Raleigh operates over 200 parks across the city for playing with the kids, walking the dog, amateur athletes, tennis players, swimmers, runners, art aficionados, nature lovers, and those seeking a quiet place to rest and rejuvenate.  And we now have a master plan for our new Dix Park, destined to become a beloved public space and a common ground for all of Raleigh to enjoy.


Our Economy

Raleigh, according to Forbes:

#2 Best Place in America for Business and Careers

3.4% Unemployment

2.6% Job Growth (2017)

Cost of Living 1% above the national average

46% college attainment

I am always open to new technologies and methods of delivering services that show promise for enhancing our city, but I will fully explore any potential negative impacts to our citizens before I lend support to major changes.

What District D is Saying…

Demonstrating a strong sense of responsibility and commitment to public service, she prepares thoroughly, listens carefully, responds promptly, and works collaboratively. Best of all, she's warm, caring, and genuinely dedicated to serving our community. Her energy and sincere interest in our City and its people will make Raleigh not just better but great. We're proud to support her for District D.
