What is your response to the Black Lives Matter movement?

My response to BLM has been to look inward. I want to do more than I have done and identify areas where I need to grow.

What do you think needs to be done to promote social and racial justice?

I don’t know. There is so much to do. I am trying to educate myself and challenge myself. I want to help make things better.

Are you in favor of police reform? If so, what should it look like?

I think steps have been made in our city police force. We need to keep moving in that direction. Transparency and accountability are important. I also think that our police are underpaid. We can attract the best candidates if we can pay better. The more we pay the higher standards we can expect and demand.

What do you believe is the biggest issue constituents in the district you are running for are facing?

The big issues are crime, sewage/drainage, and blight.

What are the principles of your campaign and why?

I think whoever is the council person should be vested in the community. If a candidate buys rental property in District 6 but lives in District 8, they shouldn’t be our council person. I want to help people get the things done in our neighborhood that they want done. I want to be a facilitator and a red tape cutter.

Why do you feel that you are the perfect candidate for metro council?

I don’t think I am the perfect candidate actually. I am definitely better than interlopers who want to run in District 6 because they can’t win in District 8 or District 12. There are other candidates who, like me, have lived in District 6 for years and served our neighbors in different ways for a long time. I or any of those candidates would be a good choice for Metro Council.
