THANK YOU, Raleigh! I am so grateful for the support of the voters and everyone who volunteered and supported our campaign.
As I said last night, we have our work cut out for us. We must keep pushing forward on housing affordability. Raleigh is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, and we need to continue to manage our growth in a smart way that ensures our city is inclusive, equitable, and affordable for everyone.
Commuter rail continues to be my top transit priority, along with seeing through the implementation of Bus Rapid Transit throughout Raleigh. A robust and accessible transit system will help reduce congestion, mitigate climate change, and prepare us for the future. We can’t afford not to act on this now.
I am also excited that Raleigh’s parks bond passed overwhelmingly with over 73% of the vote. I look forward to implementing this robust plan to ensure every neighborhood in our city has great parks and recreation centers.
Finally, we must do more to prevent gun violence. I’m committed to working with our Police Chief, county and state leaders, and community partners to implement and advocate for new measures to keep our community safe.
Campaign season is over and it’s time to get back to governing. I look forward to working with our returning and new council members to move Raleigh forward.
Let’s get to work!
