I am running for District 1 City Council to create a foundation that springboards us into the future as a city. A foundation built on economics, data, ideas, beautification, innovation and possibilities. A foundation whose cornerstone is creating an ecosystem of opportunities for our youth.
As a community-based executive, I hear and see directly the impact of our city leadership’s decision making over the past 10 years. No substantial economic growth. No increase in livable wage jobs. Increase in crime and public nuisance. Divisive leadership. Very few youth activities.
Our city is suffering. It is going to take new ideas and new approaches to service, with an entrepreneurial mindset to springboard District 1 into the future.
If elected, I commit to listening to the needs of my constituents. I commit to working collectively with my council colleagues to recreate the image of our city. An image that we can all be proud to call our home.
Thank you for the opportunity to earn your vote.
