As your County Commissioner, I love working with people across Durham to make change through local government. I’m running for re-election because Durham is at a moment of incredible growth and opportunity. I want to keep working for affordable housing, accessible public transit, great schools and job opportunities, and community-based services that address systemic injustices.

Wendy with citizens

  • Affordable, safe, and supportive housing: As County Commissioner, I’m leading collaborative approaches to create more affordable housing in Durham.
  • Education and economic opportunity: I believe that all Durham residents deserve great schools and job opportunities, and I’ve funded historic investments in both.
  • Public transit and environmental justice: Together we can create a community that has great transit, is bike- and pedestrian-friendly, and is resilient in the face of climate change.
  • Community health and wellbeing: I’m addressing systemic injustices by investing in resources for people who use substances, live with mental illness, or have been impacted by the justice system.
