Foster a Community Where All People Can Thrive
MY COMMITMENT TO YOU
Those who know me well know that I have committed my entire adult life to bringing people together for the health and prosperity of this city. I have worked hard to avoid the negative political rhetoric that encompasses politics today and makes voters frustrated and angry.
I believe there is way too much work to be done to bring our community together, provide good jobs, ensure safe streets, prioritize quality education, enhance government efficiency and bridge the racial gaps in our city. Our job as leaders is to create a community that enables all people to thrive, and that’s what I’m committed to doing each and every day.
I am committed to better engaging citizens in their government and giving them a more influential voice. In everything I do, I promise to bridge the dialogue between young and old, progressives and establishment, black and white.
We need to get back to focusing on ideas and solutions. I encourage citizens to get involved in their neighborhood organizations and with their local government. Don’t let others decide the future of your city. Be a part of the conversation about solutions and progress. We need to grow St. Louis for everyone, not just for the politically connected or those with means. I’m committed to doing just that, and I’m hoping you and others will join me to do the same.
