I serve as a member of the Clarendon Park Advisory Council because I recognize parks as an asset that every member of our community can enjoy regardless of their economic status.
Clarendon Park brings neighbors from all different backgrounds together – from the Clarendon-Garfield Model Railroad Club, to Kuumba Lynx, a hip hop after school program, to community gardeners. However, its historic community center from 1916 has fallen into disrepair and has been passed over for necessary funding for development projects in the ward that only benefit those who can afford expensive condos.
If elected I will continue to work diligently to ensure equitable access to safe and well-maintained facilities and green spaces across the ward. Among other policies, I would create a mandatory clawback program for open space impact fees.
