Why are you running for Detroit City Council?
I am running for the position of city council because I was tired of talking, and hearing about the drama, the name calling and the antics of our current leadership. I was compelled to come forth to be of service, to the people, for the people, and by the people of Detroit. I want to present a new image that would bring about change to the city of Detroit. My plan is to work with the Mayor of Detroit to bring a brighter future to our citizens as we strive forward in the 21st. Century.
Our city is in a serious financial crisis. We need jobs. We need to invest in our neighborhoods. We need to address the crime problems throughout the city of Detroit. My main purpose will be creating, and attracting jobs, as well as be an advocate for the people. I vow as a council member that there will be a difference at the Council meetings; the people concerns will be addressed, discussed, and resolved, in a timely professional manner.
I cannot say this enough, Detroit is in serious financial crisis. I plan to assist the mayor and my colleagues in making major decision quickly to bring the deficit under control. I plan to continue to assist the police department with laws that will help protect our citizens.
Detroit can and will be a vibrant city again; the come back kid. We will show other major cities how we reformed our neighborhoods, how we reformed our schools, and how we stopped the flight of our citizens leaving our town.
I will make a difference. You will make a difference, and together we can make a difference.
