Read why David Tannaci is running for city council
What local issues in your district affect you that make you want to run for office?
Tannaci said he is concerned about environmental sustainability and “stewardship of our natural elements.”
“Something that’s really driven me to the forefront,” Tannaci said, has been unhoused District 1 residents “grappling with the lack of an adequate response from leadership.”
Tannaci said more affordable housing is needed. He said residents should have more say about what kind of housing is built.
What is your dream for District 1?
Tannaci’s hope is “for it to continue being a really excellent melting pot of diversity for the community,” he said. “We have a pretty wide swath that we cover in terms of socioeconomic status levels, experiences and backgrounds.”
He also wants “support for the development of multimodal transit within the district to downtown and to other elements of town,” he said. “That’s things like the rail trail and advocacy for bicycle expansion and safe protected lanes.”
