Additional comment from candidate:

We want to change the city law to ensure NO STREET IS LEFT BEHIND - We will put an end to empty promises and excuses from elected officials by requiring City Council members to live in the section of their district that need the most infrastructure work, the mayor should live in the section of the city that needs the most infrastructure work, and the police chief should live in the section of the city with most crime. We believe this will force elected officials to find real solutions instead of years of excuses We strongly believe that if a Candidate is not willing to do everything in their power to ensure that the needs of people are meet and NO STREET IS LEFT BEHIND...Then that Candidate does not deserve to serve This concept is used in the private sector, company leaders move to area (even different countries at times) where their service is needed to make the company successful.
