Neighborhood and Community
I usually hold a town hall meeting each month to encourage community engagement and input while also providing helpful information pertaining to the city and the district. Once a quarter those meetings are on Saturday and are usually department head meetings. This allows the community to engage with department heads in a panel discussion forum, where they can ask a wide range of questions, and the city staff is there to provide answers.
The monthly town hall meeting is usually held on the first Tuesday of every month. It often has a scheduled speaker and provides a wealth of information on topics such as neighborhood watch programs, crime prevention, code enforcement, trash & sewer, animal welfare, and CPR .
If your having a community meeting or neighborhood event, reach out to me. I enjoy participating in these, especially in the district, such as the Fall Festival at Christview Christian Church, Hmong New Year, Cinco De Mayo, and countless neighborhood events and meetings.
I have also held a Back to School Bash, Community Service Fair, area Food Drives and other events. During some of these events I have distributed school supplies, fed 100’s of people, had fun activities including inflatables and water canon. I also invited community participation. Participants included area churches, Community Health Connections, Wellspring Family Clinic, Tulsa Fire Department, Tulsa Police Department, EMSA, Crime Stoppers, Red Cross, Meals on Wheels, Public Service Company of Oklahoma, Tulsa Animal Welfare, Tulsa Transit, Tulsa Parks, Mental Health Association, Aim High, Volunteers of America, and many others. They provided vaccinations, safety, program and agency information, and outreach. Look for other events as I continue to serve District 6.
I advocate for neighborhoods across the district, and work to address specific resident issues and concerns, such as code enforcement, traffic and safety, trash and graffiti, and many more.
I work with home owner associations and residents to address concerns regarding zoning and development issues. I facilitate meetings between neighborhoods and developers to address concerns and, when possible, reach compromises. I have also stood with neighborhoods to protect them from harmful development.
