As a resident, small business owner, and servant of District 2, Cruz Shaw has spent a lot of time visiting with residents from all across the district learning about what the community needs in order to help it thrive. Through those conversations, three themes have consistently bubbled to the surface:

  1. District 2 needs to create opportunities for all residents to prosper by supporting education and workforce development initiatives.

  2. District 2 needs to be more inviting to and supportive of its businesses. Specifically those owned by women and minorities. These job creators are the economic engine of the community, and we need to support their development.

  3. Residents from across the city continue to move into the urban core. District 2 needs to capitalize with more transportation options and better infrastructure.
