Improved Infrastructure

Enhancement of our neighborhoods with safe, well-maintained roads, pipes, and electrical lines that produce reliable and expedient services.

The Imperial Hardware Lofts project, shown Jan. 4, is under construction in downtown Riverside. The project is one of several that will add housing in the neighborhood.

Enhanced Quality of Life

Message from Philip

Riverside's first ward is an area of rich diversity; from college students, to new families, single adults, married couples, and seniors we are a ward that exhibits all of Riverside's strongest qualities. I am running for City Council because Riverside is my home, its people, its many cultures and its unique past are some of my greatest passions.

Riverside is currently faced with many challenges: failing roads, lack of accessible housing, a growing homeless population, too few job opportunities, and a significant pension obligation debt. Together we must proactively address all of these challenges.

Preservation of our unique assets along with development that brings more affordable and accessible housing is of great importance to me. Alongside the need to preserve, we as Ward 1 residents must progress to meet the needs of our ever-changing and growing population with innovative high-tech industries that promote local investment.

Riverside’s first ward is a destination with a proud history that deserves a more promising future and a visionary leader to partner with the community to achieve the goals we all hold most dear. Let us join together in the building of a stronger Ward 1 for our children and grandchildren. Together we can accomplish great things. Onward!
