Story by Justice Spriggs

While I was campaigning I was able to connect with so many Columbia Heights residents about their wishes for the city, and I feel so honored that people have put their trust in me to do that work.

I would like to improve the safety of our roads for all commuters. Columbia Heights has so many things to offer, and we need to make sure that people can get to those things in a safe manner, including Central Ave. Then there are our parks that have a lot to offer, which I think we can invest in and upgrade.

Another thing I want to see is more diversity in the makeup of our boards and commissions and more outreach and partnership with our youth and schools.

I also want to work with the renters in our community, especially as they are a large portion of our population.

My personal favorite “hidden gem” is the Blooming Sunshine Garden at Lomianki Park on 39th Ave. It is a community garden that anyone can attend to help take care of, pick fresh food and meet great people!
