|Priorities||First and Foremost I will be a full Time Councilman, I firmly believe that people's lives are not based on a 9-5 schedule. I will be at all block club meetings and have a ward meeting at least every other month i.e. within the 3rd ward there are smaller communities, each one has different concerns, the concerns of Briarhill, are not the same as Crandall Park South, which would mean my ear would need to be open to hear all the voices, the entire breath of the 3rd Ward. To launch information in a timely fashion via monthly news letters.|
Use Existing vacant buildings for example Hayes Junior High School, Part of the Northside Hospital that is currently closed to attract a trade school for people who don't want to go to college, laid off workers i.e. GM and those businesses directly affected by the closing of GM, Northside hospital workers who were laid off and others, ex offenders who would be able to work in the trade and begin to receive a decent wage. this would be achieved by going to donor's forums, foundations, and writing grants.
