Our Solutions

Tackling the issues with sensible solutions for real progress.

The Modern Cities Act

In my first 100 days in Congress, I’m going to introduce a bi-partisan bill to the house called the Modern Cities Act. This legislation will finally take our American cities into the 21st century we all deserve. We will modernize police departments in essential ways that dramatically improve public safety. We will repopulate our thriving commercial corridors by incentivizing small businesses. And we will pave the path to actually end homelessness in every city across the nation within two years. These problems are solvable and we have tangible solutions. But we need your support. We need you to spread the message to all your friends and family. We need you to donate so we can expand our reach. We need you to volunteer to register voters. We can absolutely do this if we do it together.   

What does the Modern Cities Act include?
