Why am I Running for City Council?
I’m running for City Council to move Ward 4 forward, to address poverty and to support “out of the box” ideas to address crime.
I will continue to support our seniors and talk with them about what’s important to them.
I think it’s time that the citizens of Cleveland be allowed to address their leaders at City Council meetings petition City leaders for redress of grievances.
I believe we should prioritize establishing a school on the Cleveland’s east side similar to the Max Hayes School on the west side—where our young men and women can learn trade skills.
I believe that every human being has a right to dignity and that dignity includes a good job making at least $15 dollars an hour.
I also believe that dignity includes providing health care options for people who need help and can’t afford it.
I will passionately fight to be an advocate for Ward 4 and I will seek to be in partnership with individuals and institutions that are trying to advance the quality of life in our Ward.
