Myles for Rockville
Thank you for allowing me to serve as one of your City Councilmembers. Serving others is the underlying principle guiding my professional life and is the reason why I work as a pediatrician, served active duty in the US Navy, and serve you as one of your City Councilmembers.
Over the past four years, I led the effort on issues ranging from addressing climate change to keeping our City and Staff safe—all in a fiscally prudent way. I look forward to building on that progress in at least three ways:
1. Public safety: improving street safety for all forms of transit; eliminating financial and access barriers to youth afterschool and summer camp programs; decriminalizing and appropriately treating mental health and substance misuse; ensuring our police department is fully staffed with the appropriate and well qualified personnel
2. Environment: accelerating the implementation of Rockville’s Climate Action Plan by reducing the barriers for residents and businesses wishing to decarbonize their energy usage; expanding renewable energy installations on city property, where feasible
3. Budget: Prioritizing the continued provision of high-quality City services while ensuring that City Staff are compensated appropriately; recruiting and retaining businesses to expand Rockville’s vibrancy and tax base
Again, thank you for trusting me to serve as one of your City Councilmembers for the past four years. I hope to earn your support, once again, to build on the progress made thus far.
Yours in service,
Election Day: November 7, 2023
