The following are my current AREAS of FOCUS:
There are a lot of challenges that everyday people are dealing with and understand it. I am committed to doing my part. It’s about our kids, it’s about our young adults, it’s about families, it’s about those that want a fair chance, its our businesses. It’s about the community.
Jobs and Economic Development
I am focusing on saving and creating jobs for our community and promoting economic development.
I know that small businesses create the majority of jobs and I will fight to keep small and medium sized businesses in the District, and I will fight to create and bring businesses into the area. I also will work with banks and others that finance startup businesses and get them to support people in the neighborhood who have a good idea and want to start a business.
I’ll also work with business owners to get them to take advantage of some tax incentives that benefit them if they hire a few more employees.
I’ll work to direct dollars to social services organizations that work to prepare individuals for the job market.
I am focusing on Education.
I understand the importance of a quality education for our children and for our adults. I want to be a strong supporter of improving our schools, keeping them open, and ensuring that schools and our kids have the right resources like computers and up-to-date books.
I am focused on protecting and supporting our Seniors.
Our Seniors are the ones that paved the way for us. I will be a strong advocate for Seniors, ensuring that they receive the care and support they deserve and push legislation that protects their interests.
Youth and Young Adults
I am focused on protecting and supporting our Youth.
The Youth are our future. I want to create a Youth agenda. An agenda that creates opportunities for our kids and young adults to have a brighter future. Sometimes we think only the worst about our kids. But they need our help and I will find ways to create opportunities for those that are interested in doing better.
I want to focus on Public Safety – Protecting our Neighborhoods.
Safety is something I hear a lot about. People want to be free to come and go around their neighborhood without fear. Kids want to go to and from School without fear. I want to work on strengthening the laws that protect us and work with other local officials like our aldermen to ensure our neighborhoods get a fair amount of policing and that the police are there to protect us.
