On the Issues: JUSTICE, DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
My most pressing priority in 2021 is justice, diversity, equity and inclusion, because without them, our plans for housing development, transportation and small businesses would leave out almost half of the populace of Hillsboro. I want to see Hillsboro put our ideals into practice, which becomes a habit, then a culture.
I will work with our current DEI task force and social justice groups to bring our ideals into practice. Additional outreach by the city in neighborhoods, communities and gathering places will help us gain the knowledge we need from our residents. That knowledge will put us on a clearer path to an inclusive and more vibrant city.
