Diversity is at the core of what makes Montclair special. Our different backgrounds enhance our community and create the very fabric of the town we all love. Preserving our diversity requires continued commitment, not just in the abstract, but in action.
If Montclair becomes an enclave for only the few, our town will be permanently changed.
That's why I fully and unequivocally support common sense rent control legislation in Montclair.

As Mayor, I will remain steadfast in my commitment to protect Montclair and all that we stand for.
