It has been an incredible experience running in a race with five highly capable candidates. I appreciate very much that we were able to campaign on ideas and contrast the varied experiences that we would each bring to the Metro Council.
I want to thank Cameron Whitten for his energy, enthusiasm and focus on diversity and inclusion, Karen Spencer for her fresh perspective and experience around natural area issues and Mary Peveto for her passionate advocacy for clean air and environmental justice.
I look forward to engaging Mary Nolan in the runoff and believe we’ll be able to draw distinctions between our policies and qualifications, particularly around making hard choices to effectively address climate change. Metro needs leadership that doesn’t compromise on our obligation to act on climate when considering investments in transportation and our future.
