On the issues

What is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

Corrupt leadership has abused the people's votes and trust. The current leadership has not institutionalized avenues of success to get current Ward 7 residents working or enforced laws created to do so, created positive education reform, economic development and businesses to include returned citizens who want to be self-reliant and not dependent on the government. Addressing the rise of crime, especially against our seniors and violence amongst our youth, the leadership of Ward 7 has failed to help the people during trying times while burdening them with over-priced tickets and increasing property taxes, while decreasing services and opportunities.

Why should voters elect you?

In the past 15 years I have committed myself to Ward 7. As a Civil Rights Republican, I will bring the needed change and balance.
