Smart Growth &
The county has been too forgiving of bad development that brings negative impacts, but not quality jobs. I'll fight to limit sprawl growth that causes traffic congestion, overcrowded schools and environmental degradation.
Developing our Metro stations is long overdue. Every county executive talks about Metro Station development, but they have not succeeded. The county must do better in the future to balance our tax base.
I will ensure that developers pay their fair share of infrastructure costs, and that development is sustainable and environmentally responsible.
