COURTNEY'S PRIORITIES

As a City Councilmember, Courtney will build on her track record, as an experienced civic leader and policy advocate, to ensure Emeryville is an inclusive and more affordable place for everyone.

LEARN MORE ABOUT HER PLANS

I envision Emeryville as a place for families and community members to live and thrive. I am very aware of issues that are facing working families, and offer a perspective from communities and demographics that aren’t currently represented on the City Council.

 

Affordable housing and homelessness is one of the most important issues facing all of our communities and an issue that I will prioritize. 

 

In addition to housing, I will be working with fellow council members to make fiscally responsible budget decisions as we navigate the pandemic deficit, expanding equitable public transit accessibility, working with Emeryville’s small business community, and addressing public safety concerns. 

 

Join our fight for a more equitable Emeryville.
