WHY I AM RUNNING
Over the years, I have witnessed the slow deterioration of our families, public schools, local job market and affordable housing, that in earlier years, encouraged the growth and development of its residents. Furthermore, today in the District of Columbia, we are seeing the unemployment rate reach startling highs. Nearly 46% of high school students never graduate. Countless men, women and children are suffering from homelessness, many returning citizens are without jobs, or under employed and our Veterans report that they are homeless and unemployed. This is a disgrace to humanity! I believe that our residents deserve better from its leadership.
An effective District government must be transparent and responsive to all of its citizens. Leaders can no longer view our government as a “cash cow,” that thinks only of themselves and not consider what is in the best interest of its deserving citizens. Leaders must be held accountable and live by a set of principles rooted in service and not greed. My vision is to take the District of Columbia to a place where we are recognized for our strong social, political, economic, and educational infrastructures. In doing this, we must be inclusive of all District residents, not just the few.
I am running for the Office of Mayor because I believe we are in need of a transparent, honest, and equitable government that Restores Washington’s Confidence, Regain Dignity and Re-establish Public Trust in political leadership that serves all of its citizens. The citizens of the District of Columbia deserve a vibrant government that demonstrates vitality, drive, momentum, and strong leadership. I promise to work diligently to level the playing field for the more than 600,000 citizens in the District of Columbia in a fair, unbiased and equitable manner.
