As District 1 City Councilman, Gabriel will strive to maintain public safety and work to eliminate the divide in communication between citizens in need and City Council. Gabriel will make it a priority to be accessible in order to remain in tune with the needs of his constituents and their neighborhoods.

Brain drain can be described as a situation in which large numbers of educated and skilled people leave their own city or area to live and work in another where they believe they can earn more money or conditions are better. As District 1 City Councilman, Gabriel will work to create initiatives and programs that influence talent to stay and build in Toledo. Furthermore, Gabriel will strive to implement public policies that benefit local business owners, helping to evolve the economy and ensure the continued growth and success of our local businesses.

As your District 1 City Councilman, Gabriel will carry forward this passion by striving to create initiatives and programs that cater to essential youth development needs, as well as give the youth something fun and safe to do.
Maintaining the infrastructure of our streets and roadways has been a persistent problem in Toledo, but what exactly has been implemented to remedy this persistent problem? As your District 1 City Councilman, Gabriel will work to develop efficient systems to remedy infrastructure issues such as potholes, disbanded alley-ways, issues with old buildings, the need for more lighting in certain public areas, and more.
