Henry Butler is running to represent City Council District 36. As a former transit worker, Butler supports investing in mass transit and favors transitioning to hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as adding protected bike lanes. He is a strong proponent of maintaining and upgrading parks and will streamline the Parks Department’s capital process to cut bureaucratic red tape. Additionally, Butler is deeply aware of climate change’s local impact and supports sea walls, living shorelines, and updating building codes to take into account higher floodplains.
