Qualifications for office I've been an active voice in the city for many years. First serving on the Euclid 2020 planning committee; elected as Precinct committee man and currently serving on the Euclid Steering committee. With my passion for serving and my IT background, I will bring a analytical thinking process to the issues facing the ward and the city. I know how to work with a diversity of people and listen to both sides of an issue and except all opinions before rendering mines.

I'm running for the Ward 2 council seat in order to usher in a new vision and voice for the residents. For far too long the south side of the city (wards 1,2 & 3) have been giving a back seat to downtown. It's time that we change that. Ward 2 residents need a voice that is not beholding to this or any administration or bases its loyalty on the current setting councilperson. We need a voice for the people! Someone that is not afraid to go against the grain to bring about results. I will fight everyday for my neighbors in Ward 2.
One of the biggest complaints I've heard over the summer is our youth not respecting their city. My goal is to implement a youth/young adult council to the city and get our young people involved in the future of this city. We must hear from our young people as to the direction of the city. If we don't engage the next generation of Euclidian's then we will have no future.

I want to see our neighborhood parks become more of a community gathering place. By working with the recreation department as well as our daycares and library we can bring a new purpose and focus to our parks. I would like to see our parks updated with the latest equipment that would allow for children with sensory deficiencies or other developmental issues to be able to play alongside others.

We must develop a comprehensive plan for development. I would work with the administration and council to establish a Community Development Corp in the model of Cincinnati's 3CDC.

The challenges we face as a ward is the same throughout the city. Crime is a major factor for people moving out or not selecting the city as a place to live. Our image as a city to live, work and play in is hurt by our crime stats. Our schools is another challenge that has to be addressed. As Councilman, I would work closely with our schools to see how we can partner together and come up with tangible solutions to improve our schools and increase our graduation rates.
