As Mayor of Bremerton, I am focused on making positive changes for Bremerton. One of the issues I am concerned about and hear from the community about is the increasing costs of housing for all income levels in our City. My goal is to increase supply to reduce housing shortages that can lead to higher prices. One of my initiatives is to expand the number of lots available for building and to increase housing types that can add to inventory. This effort is currently underway and will create more residences in the near future. 

Additionally, I have started new initiatives that help our most vulnerable citizens. This includes the Bremerton Rental Assistance Program, which provides support for eviction prevention, rental payments and security deposits. Another effort is the Bremerton weatherization program that offers funding to improve energy efficiency for low income and seniors to reduce heating and other housing costs. 

I believe that these initiatives, among others we are working on, will help our residents and support actions that will increase affordable housing in our community.
