Right now, Kansas City is facing a violent crime and homicide crisis. Fundamental to healthy families are clean and safe neighborhoods. To achieve this, we must work with the Neighborhood Organizations, Social Service Partners, and the Police Department to ensure collaboration in delivering community outreach services. As your Councilman, I will support evidence-based crime prevention programs, and efforts to clean up abandoned properties and reduce illegal dumping. We must also work as a community to ensure Kansas Citians have safe and dignified interactions with police officers
One of our city’s top priorities should be to deliver services to all residents consistently and equally. I will work tirelessly to improve the delivery of basic city services such as trash pickup, pothole repair, and snow removal. As taxpayers, we deserve to know that services will be delivered in a timely and efficient manner. As your Councilman, my vote will always be to prioritize basic city services and I will work to ensure transparency and accountability in the process.
A city that supports small businesses, innovation, and entrepreneurialism is a city that promotes job creation and a thriving middle class. As your Councilman, I will support the creative energy of hard-working Kansas Citians to make us competitive and attractive for the future. Unfortunately, too many of our citizens remain burdened by the weight of generational and concentrated poverty. To move forward, we must address these inequities and provide opportunities for all Kansas Citians.
A good campaign depends on volunteers like you. Take action and get involved!
