If elected he is vowing to be a "watchdog" for consumers, to protect our air, water and land, keep our communities safe and ensure that we honor our veterans.

He famously doorbelled over 20,000 households to beat the two incumbents. He worked as an attorney before running for council and graduated from NYU. As an attorney he worked to 
protect the Kruckeberg Botanical Garden and to challenge some of Tim Eyeman's initiatives.
