“I’m running for City Council because I believe in the fundamental idea of a government that serves the people and works for the betterment of our community,” he said in the announcement. "I’m running to do what ought to be done, but isn’t getting done, and to get the focus at City Hall back on truly serving the people.
“l’ll fight to invest in the city services our neighborhoods depend on, tackle the homeless crisis, meet the threats of climate change and wildfires, and put my public safety experience to work improving emergency response."
