The Vision

My vision is to help build a community where we maintain equity in education, increased affordable housing, increase small business support, strengthen community safety measures for the enhancement of our community.

The Plan

My plan is to continue to work to bridge the divide between resources, the dissemination of resources and access to resources in the community. In addition I will continue to address community issues with effective legislative action, while forging crucial connections for and within the community.

The Implementation

In order to continue in the improvement of our community, it is important that we set a “call to action” into motion, consisting of all Neighborhood Ambassadors, Volunteers, Local Leaders, and Community Watchdogs, because collectively, we can make this community better.
