We can’t wait for a new approach to ensuring community members have jobs that pay a living wage, our youth have the opportunities and education that match their boundless potential, and for our communities to be safe without criminalizing poverty and race.
As mayor, I would focus on growing the number of small local businesses and reforming our tax incentive programs to make them work for the people, not just the corporations that benefit.
My education priorities center on creating a competitive fund that would support the reimagination of our classrooms for the 21st century, end the school to prison pipeline, and much more.
Finally, I know we can keep our communities safe without following racist “tough on crime” policies. My first priority to making a change in this direction is to hire a Police Director who has a record of results in culture change and is focused on making significant changes in how we police our city.
