Yes, I would promote the ideal Public Safe and Public Health everyone needs to have a role in this issue. We have to work together on these issues the public and police More people would have to be involved if you have limited resources in order to make the decision to work further in the policing methods.
Cleveland has one of the best Legislation on Lead poisoning, I would focus on Resources Commitment, Helping to do what needs to be done. It's a matter of again Resources Commitment helping the family to know where to connect.

Again Resources, where to, connect the residents that live in housing or apartment. Your Government, City website, and location.

All Council people will work together and we will found which ward may need the Covid economic recovery relief funds more than the other and help from there. Each ward has different needs.

There is Public input when the public hires in the people that oversee the process so Yes I support public input.
Effectively and Efficient all community development needs to be done at a good market rate, and mix of income for all gentrification.

When the City is doing a displacement of communities of all color.
I have a Community Ward meeting once a month and I go door to door talking to each one on a personal level, go to the different events within our neighborhood festival, church function, picnic, gathering etc.

A government that seeks to serve the public much efficiently communicates with everyone in their different culture.

I totally support the accountability initiative. I believe in addressing poverty and education as a starting point. We have to stop the cycle that ravages our community. I believe there should be accountability across the board. For those who are menacing our community, to those who are suppose to protect and serve them.

We cant incarcerate away the problems we face. We must address these issues with real solutions or we will continue to see our communities act as an assembly line to the prison system or cemeteries. I am totally for redirecting some funds to ensure we have the right people going out on certain calls that police are not trained for. We must think outside and beyond the box so I support this and other initiatives that will address the issues within policing.
I would continue to support the current programs that are in place and expanding on this with education and access for people to understand the issue and resources available to them
I certainly support what PB Cleveland is doing. We need people at the table that understand the issues directly. I want to engage our community to empower them to know they have the power within them to make change happen.

For far too long we have people making decisions for our community that don't understand the issues and are too far removed from the problem to make decisions that help the people .
Our communities have been underserved for so long. That when our people find a way out they run. We have to make a community where we all thrive and not feel a need to escape. By addressing poverty and education and giving people an opportunity to succeed. We can began to give the people a reason to be proud to stay. The communities should reflect a diverse community for all to grow and live and not push the residents out who have lived there most if not their entire lives
I believe in consistent engagement with my constituents year round. We must do better in education our people. We have a diverse group of people that pass through my ward via low income housing, so yes expanded language access for city services is necessary.
