Travis Brooks, Candidate for Tompkins County Legislature District 1

Short version:

Long version:

Travis Brooks is running for the District 1 seat on the Tompkins County Legislature. He spoke to WRFI News Director Jimmy Jordan in late April. In the conversation, Brooks goes over the main points of his platform:

  • Affordable housing–gentrification has removed our most vulnerable people from their communities and placed them in the most remote areas which lack the most basic resources

  • Employment opportunities–creating jobs that give families stability and upward movement beyond the living wage.

  • Funding for social service programs–we must push for programs that provide sustained programming based on need.

  • Improving the quality of lives for the marginalized West Hill residents
