NOTE (November 18, 2016): I had taken this "Platform" page down following the election since I wasn't campaigning anymore, but considering the moratorium I sponsored—and which was unanimously passed at the November 21st Council meeting—I thought it particularly relevant to make this page visible again. If you read the first point, you'll understand why.
People in wheelchairs, with walkers, or pushing strollers need equal access to all that Portland has to offer. Likewise, people using all modes of transportation should be able to navigate the city safely and easily.
To improve accessibility for all in Portland, we must commit ourselves to:
>> maintaining and increasing the ease of
mobility in and around the city for
pedestrians and cyclists;
>> keeping the markings and signage for
crosswalks and bike lanes in good condition;
>> doing what we can to ensure that businesses
can be easily entered and exited by people
with wheelchairs, walkers, or strollers;
>> improving sidewalks and curb tipdowns; and
>> continuing to improve public transportation
options throughout the city.
