She has specific priorities for the city if elected as mayor, saying her focus will be on infrastructure, public safety, green space, and education.

“My platform is I A.C.T. and if you think of the letters in I A.C.T. I stands for integrity - that’s how I will lead - A I will be accessible like I have been now, C I will be communicative like I have, and T I will be transparent.”
