"We must do better for our future. My vision includes the long-treasured promise that Alexandria is a growing, vibrant city that must retain its sense of community and livability. Our city must thrive and do so with respect for our diverse people and neighborhoods, respect for our environment, respect for our numerous historic districts – and perhaps most importantly – respect for the critical role that trust plays in government. We must restore the public trust, and that starts at the top. Alexandria needs a leader who has a demonstrated track record of transparency, truth, and ethics."
