Kristina strives to support and empower Tacoma's youth, expand economic opportunity by attracting new businesses that will create good-paying local jobs, improve multimodal transportation and protect access to green spaces for all to enjoy.
Improving Community Safety
Kristina believes that expanding community engagement programs and investing in people is the only way Tacoma will improve public safety for everyone. She’s working to implement the chief's crime plan, ensure the police force is fully-staffed and invest in alternative response units.
Expanding Affordable Housing for All
Kristina believes we have a responsibility to address disparities in home ownership. She sponsored a disparity study in 2020, which led to larger investments in the Black Homeownership program. On the council, she has worked to expand shelter options, increase safe parking, and build the affordable housing trust fund.
Reducing Environmental Impacts
Kristina believes that no matter where you live, you deserve access to clean water and air. She has worked to expand the free tree program across the city to improve the quality of the air we breathe, strengthened environmental protections in the Port and invested $17 million to combat climate change.
