Safe, Healthy & Vibrant Neighborhoods

Mary understands that people need to feel safe in their neighborhoods and business districts. Mary will seek increased allocations for community policing and to double the number of after-school and summer recreational, green job training and employment programs for youth. Mary will also bring community leaders and associations together to help provide the supports that our Seniors need to stay active and age in place.
