JULY 30th, 2023

For the first time in its 290-year history, the City of Savannah has a dedicated stormwater fund. 

The measure passed 6-3, with hours of deliberation in between. By the time my turn for remarks came around - I let it fly and left nothing to chance

A Rabbi, an urban planner, and a Congressman walk into a meeting… No, it’s not the setup for a joke; it’s been my reality for the past week to meet with some of the most prominent leaders in the Savannah community to discuss our housing crisis. It earned the most attention on my calendar for sure, and with good reason...

Abraham Lincoln’s quote of “... if I had five minutes to cut down a tree, I would spend the first three sharpening my axe,” may be apocryphal but it is such a good quote I’m using it anyway. This week, I spent the majority of my time ‘sharpening the axe’ in a way most befitting a member of Savannah City Council and completed a course to become a registered civil mediator in Georgia.

Mother nature gave us quite a wakeup call this week with flash conditions erupting following an afternoon thunderstorm this past Monday, the 17th that overwhelmed Savannah’s infrastructure. As I’ve reported in previous notes...

When I got the news in late 2019 that I’d have the honor to serve, I knew exactly where to start - service delivery. A few years prior, volunteers from the neighborhood scoured the streets for opportunities for improvement including broken sidewalks, overgrown vegetation, and even a leaky water meter or two and utilized the City’s 311 service as a hub for mobilizing City resources...
