Food Insecurity Taskforce

In my first 100 days in office, I will establish a taskforce made up of community members, local leaders, and subject experts to address the issue of the closing of Walmart Neighborhood Market and form a plan to address food insecurity in the district. This is an immediate issue that needs to be addressed by local officials, and it will be my first priority as councilman to ensure the wellbeing and access to food for everyone in District 5. 


Public Safety Forum

As a representative of the people of District 5, I will address widespread issues of public safety by holding a series of forums for community members to express their concerns and proposed solutions. In my first 100 days in office, I will make it a priority to plan and hold several public safety forums so that we can work together to address these issues. By coming together and speaking on our shared concerns, we can find sustainable solutions to keep everyone in iur community safe.

Storm Water Review

After listening to community members, it has been made clear that there are several areas of concern regarding stormwater runoff and flooding. From Carolyn Ln., Moore Rd., to residents' backyards and neighborhoods, I will personally survey and assess each area in our district affected by this issue. Prioritizing this issue and collaborating with public works will be key in fixing this longstanding issue in our district.

Small Business Council

As a small business owner, I have personally seen and endured the average struggles of running a small business. I believe that every small business in our district is vital to our local economy and community. I will make it a priority in my first 100 days in office to form a council made up of small business owners throughout District 5. I also want to work with our local Black-owned businesses to ensure that at least 20% of city contracts are allotted to Black-owned businesses. By coming together, I believe that every small local business can be essential in filling resource gaps and creatively solving issues in our district.
