Marty for Common Council

I’m running for Common Council to lend my voice and practical leadership skills to a more progressive community agenda. My top priorities are recovering from the economic impacts of the pandemic, improving public safety by shifting our focus toward crisis care and prevention, finding more effective solutions to our affordable housing challenges, and furthering our Green New Deal. I have a long history in community service, from past participation at Ecovillage at Ithaca and White Hawk to my current work, helping to achieve a secure long-term home for the Ithaca Community Gardens. Systemic inequities play an important role in all of our community challenges, and addressing those inequities must be a part of any lasting solution.
