Dear District B Voters,

Let me be clear:  My first priority will always be to protect neighborhoods.  The proliferation of short-term rentals has decimated some neighborhoods, artificially inflating the long-term rental market and driving out locals from our community.  What they have become is a far-cry from what the Council originally intended – allowing homeowners to supplement their income.

As your councilmember, I will overhaul the enforcement process creating a division devoted to short-term rental regulations enforcement.  I will prevent entire apartment complexes from becoming mini-hotels and hold all short-term rental sites accountable.  I pledge that I will shut down bad actors who flout the rules.

Others may tell you what you want to hear, but I am telling you what I will do.
