ANN ARBOR DESERVES A FRESH VOICE!

Dr. Mozhgan Savabieasfahani

For Ann Arbor City Council

You work hard enough! Your city government should do something for you. On August 4th, 2020, you have the chance to elect Dr. Mozhgan Savabieasfahani to the Ann Arbor City Council – 4th Ward.

Dr. Mozhgan’s story:

Dr. Mozhgan's top issues!

ENVIRONMENT

Immediate clean-up means shovels in the ground now. We don't want to spend another 30 years meeting with the polluters. We don't want to pay millions of dollars to attorneys as the contamination spreads through our waters.

City Council must immediately clean up the Gelman toxic plume contaminating our waters.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING

City Council should immediately ensure the Delonis Center is adequately funded so that the homeless are not sent outside in freezing temperatures. Affordable housing should be easily offered to low-income vulnerable families. 

City Council should immediately act to create more affordable housing and reduce homelessness.

MASS TRANSIT

This will require more electric buses, charging stations, paratransit, and microtransit. More frequent bus service, where people need it, will eliminate many cars. This will show how global warming can be reduced. It will also increase employment and reduce homelessness.

City Council must expand mass transit to help stop global warming.

HUMAN RIGHTS

We don't want to keep funding these wars on defenseless populations. We can better use that money on our children's education, health care, transit, and affordable housing.

City Council must defend our human rights, oppose war, and approve a resolution against military aid to Israel.

SUSTAINABILITY

We cannot be afraid to propose innovative solutions.  This city needs more frequent bus, paratransit, and microtransit service.  This would reduce global warming; increase access to employment and housing.  Sustainable environment is a must.
City Council must expand mass transit to get us a more sustainable environment.

ON UNIONS

Ann Arbor union members teach our children. They take care of our city. Their jobs should never be outsourced. I’m for repealing the union-busting Taft–Hartley Act and doubling our union membership, city-wide and nationwide.

If you can’t pay the rent in Ann Arbor, while you’re still paying for trillion-dollar wars, then you need a union.

FIGHT FOR MIN WAGE AT $15

Dr. Mozhgan believes that you work hard enough! You should at least be allowed to live in the city where you work. Asking for a $15 an hour minimum wage is not asking a lot. If every working person had a union, you know that our wages, schools, housing, and transit would be far better.

Until then, we can at least push for a $15 an hour minimum wage. It's only fair.

EDUCATION AND JOBS

City Council should increase its funding to the Neutral Zone’s Jobs Corps Program. This will create more resources and staff to transition under-resourced youth to college. The program does more than just pay for community college. It puts youth aged 18-24 through these five processes: readiness, training, mentorship and coaching, access to city jobs, and a two-year associate degree.

That Jobs Corps Program should be expanded until every young person has a fair shot at a university degree and a good job.

Dr. Mozhgan is an award-winning environmental toxicologist and an advocate for justice

As an environmental advocate, Dr. Mozhgan has been pushing for clean water, air, and the environment. Dr. Mozhgan believes that buses should come by so often that you don’t have to think about a bus schedule. Zero-emission buses and paratransit should pick you up on all the major streets. For an example that works, see “Portland Moves Toward a Future With More Bus-Only Lanes” in the Portland Mercury. This stops a lot of environmental destruction. 

Bold Leadership Our City Needs Right Now!
