Improve parks and facilities throughout the city to benefit everyone. Our parks have been neglected for decades, and it's time for modern improvements that serve all residents. We need playgrounds that every child, regardless of ability, can enjoy. 

Collaborate with the Newark Unified School District to improve education. The city government can and should offer more support to our schools.

Attract higher-paying jobs and expand apprenticeship programs. 

Advocate for smart land use policies, ensuring developers contribute their fair share while protecting the environment.

Enhance transportation by fixing potholes, managing traffic, improving public transit, and making it safer to walk and bike.

Reduce the city's carbon footprint through  solar power generation, high efficiency  and electric vehicles.  

Address the hazards caused by climate change such as extreme storms and sea level rise.

Bring in businesses that provide local job opportunities and shopping options, which will increase revenue for city services without raising taxes.
