Voters Guide: Homewood Board of Trustees


4-Year Term (vote for 3)

Karen Washington 


Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction
I teach doctoral students.
Most Important Issues:
There are two issues that I will continue to address.  I will continue to tackle the issues of blighted areas and home/building owners refusing to maintain their property in a manner that is consistent with the safety and appearance standards of Homewood.  In addition to these two issues, I plan to address a third issue, ensuring clean energy.  It is important to promote policies that help to stimulate better energy sustainability.
The goals, that I set for this position, include advocating and supporting TIFs for blighted areas; policies that promote necessary property maintenance; policies and information that foster clean energy. I would like to stimulate business owners’ and developers’ interest in various green building approaches. Last, I will continue to encourage and support economic development in our town.
