Occupation/current position Realtor
Being an entrepreneur & licensed realtor has provided experience & exposure to processes with years of community activity qualifies me. I have worked to improve the quality of life for Detroit residents by establishing community service organizations. I served as a Community Enrichment Coalition member & Herman Kiefer Development NAC elected member. I serve as a Wayne County Sheriff's Department Chaplain., Neighborhood Association President & Founder/President of 360 Detroit, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit. My experience & collaboration strengths that produce results in demanding diverse environments qualify me.
I will work with the community and the Detroit Police Department to: improve communication between residents and the police department; encourage residents to be engaged in their community because an engaged community is a safer community; and promote positive interaction between officers and residents. Over my 4-year term, I will work collaboratively with my fellow commissioners, residents and the Detroit Police Department to develop and implement relevant, viable plans that meet and maintain the stated priorities.
The Detroit Police Department has a lot of beneficial programs that many residents are not aware of. It is my belief that greater awareness of and participation in such programs will provide the information and incentive for positive movement in the city of Detroit. While I support programming that is beneficial, I will give special attention to the Explorer’s Program, the Citizen’s Police Academy and the Citizens Radio Patrol.
