Priorities - Breanna Lungo-Koehn for Mayor


From ensuring high quality service delivery on a day-to-day basis, to creating long-term capital and financial plans in the best interests of the entire community, there are a number of top priorities that have and will continue to drive my work as Mayor.

Since coming into office last January, we have made incredible progress toward many of the goals and plans I laid out - with the community - during my first campaign for Mayor. We made significant progress on a number of major planning initiatives, and we are investing in our parks and open spaces with more than 30 projects either already underway or scheduled to begin in FY22. We have made improvements to road safety across the City, leveraging state grants and partnerships, and we are finalizing a comprehensive pavement analysis study to guide both preventative maintenance and repairs to our network of roads and sidewalks.We are in the process of bringing parking enforcement in-house. And through it all, we led the City of Medford through a global pandemic, including leading the way on getting our students back into the classroom, safely, by implementing a novel testing program. 

With all we have accomplished so far, so much important work remains: leading Medford through the next stages of the pandemic and returning to life stronger than before; completing our community-driven planning and visioning efforts to continue building growth; implementing our capital plan; building parking policies and enforcement in a fair and transparent way that acknowledges the distinct needs of our individual neighborhoods and business districts; and continuing to work to give ALL people the government they deserve.

I can only ask for the honor of continuing our shared, unfinished business in the years ahead and am grateful for your support. Thank you.
